ABU DHABI / Emirates Business
Etihad Aviation Training (EAT) and Alpha Aviation Academy, the largest Multi Pilot training programme in Mena, have launched a partnership for the delivery of the Core Flying Skills components of Alpha’s pilot training programme.
EAT is a well-established Approved Training Organisation (ATO) with one of the largest training facilities in the Middle East region. Student pilots will spend three months in Al Ain, being trained on the Cessna, before returning to Alpha in Sharjah to start the Advance Flight Simulator training phases.
The partnership signifies the growing pilot training industry in the UAE and around the world. As the global pilot shortage intensifies both organisations are scaling up to meet the pilot demand of airlines worldwide.
