The Namibian Aviation Training Academy (Pty) Ltd. was founded as a subsidiary of the German aviation company "Dornier", well known all over the world for their famous civil and military aircraft, e.g. Do X, Do 27, Do 28, Do 228, Do 328, P335, Alpha Jet, BR 1150.

These Dornier aircraft are known for their reliable and safe operation, a result of comprehensive and above standard training provided by Dornier to operational and maintenance personnel. Beside such training Dornier established aviation training centres on all continents and is supporting their operation. NATA takes benefit from the experience gained in these projects.
