The competition itself, despite the competition, was sincere and friendly. Participants of the Contest felt their importance and need as specialists and performers of ground handling at airports.
The competition has shown that the airports and landing companies that take part in it have significant human professional potential, which enables them to solve the important innovative tasks facing the civil aviation of our State in a qualified manner. Basically, this potential is the young drivers who are proficient in ONT and have the appropriate theoretical background.
It is only a matter of regret for those airport managers and handling companies who did not take the opportunity and did not submit their team to the Competition, did not, without a doubt, have the professionals available to them to demonstrate their skill and ability, to encourage people of work.
The AAUCA management sees one of its main tasks as a further support to all useful initiatives and initiatives that will help the development of Ukrainian airports, stimulation and encouragement of airport specialists of different levels, one of which is the form of competitions of professional skill.
The participants of the Contest became acquainted with the great interest with the exposition of the State Museum of Aviation. OK Antonova, noting the constant dynamics of the museum's development, initiative and creative search for its managers: Alexander Rykov, Sergey Makarov, Anatoly Fatov.
We sincerely congratulate the winners and all participants of the Third All-Ukrainian Competition of Aircraft Ground Vehicle Operators on the honorary title of "Best by Profession".
The AAUCA management asks the business executives to consider materially encouraging the winners and participants, as well as publicizing this event.
