Our heritage: decades of training experience

Entry Point North, founded in 2005, is a joint partnership between three Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs): Naviair (Denmark), LFV (Sweden) and IAA (Ireland). The academy is established as a limited company with equal holding and a joint board of directors.

Entry Point North is an independent company with decades of training experience inherited from each of our owners. Together these ANSPs employ more than 1,400 air traffic controllers. All training solutions carried out in the academy are based on a proven, modern Scandinavian training philosophy and methodology which is recognised all over the world.
