Boeing has announced a partnership with the Emirates Flight Training Academy, a division of Emirates Airline, to collaborate on a comprehensive training curriculum and software infrastructure to help train pilot cadets.
Boeing is creating a customized, integrated software system for managing cadet learning and training using software developed by the recently-acquired Peters Software GmbH.
The agreement with the Emirates Flight Training Academy is part of Boeing's Pilot Developmet Program, a comprehensive program designed to meet the training requirements to become a qualified airline first officer.
Emirates Flight Training Academy, currently under construction at Al Maktoum International Airport - Dubai World Central (DWC), is scheduled to open in October 2016.
Emirates designed the facility to promote advancements in four key areas of pilot training: interactive learning for theoretical subjects in classrooms, practical learning in the most capable training aircraft, practical learning in advanced flight simulators, and airline-focused line-oriented flight training. Once completed, the Academy will be able to accommodate over 600 students at a time.
