Etihad Aviation Training (EAT), part of Etihad Aviation Group, has launched new training programmes for pilots and, for the first time, customers will also be able to earn Etihad Guest Miles against EAT products and services.

The first Aviation Training Organisation (ATO) in the world to secure regulatory approval, cadets who complete MPL training on the Phenom 100 jet can now transition directly to the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. To achieve the highest proficiency standards, this programme allows EAT trainees to become fully qualified Boeing 787 Dreamliner pilots within 18 months.

Global airline pilot licence holders or individual pilots who are currently not flying, can now conduct type rating training at EAT, the first ATO in the UAE approved by the General Civil Aviation Authorities (GCAA) to offer this service. This means, for this first time ever, individual pilots can now maintain their licence status while training with EAT. This includes initial issuance of licences for all aircraft types currently approved by EAT, revalidation and renewal of GCAA type ratings.
