Alpha Aviation Academy (AAA) is partnering with international flight training provider Airways Aviation.
The partnership will see batches of AAA cadets undertake the three months core flying phase of their MPL training at Airways Aviation’s Australia campus each year, where they will train to the highest possible standards before returning to the UAE to commence the Advance Flight Simulator training phases.
The core flying phase involves cadets undertaking 70 hours of flight training in a single-engine aircraft, where they learn how to effectively handle and fly the aircraft in preparation for a career with Air Arabia.
The partnership between AAA and Airways Aviation has been signed by Captain Nadhem AlHamad, general manager of AAA and Ted Kabbout, CEO of Airways Aviation Australia, with the first batch of AAA cadets to start their training in Australia in late March 2019.
AAA’s continued drive to get more pilots into the skies comes as the aviation industry predicts that close to 800,000 more commercial pilots will be required over the next 15 to 20 years to meet growing industry demand.
