AeroGuard Flight Training Center has signed an agreement with Qatar Aeronautical Academy to train its cadets in the United States. AeroGuard was selected by QAA for its high-quality training programs and professional standards in preparing future pilots for the airlines. This strategic agreement involves the two companies collaborating on the joint delivery of pilot training programs, including establishing AeroGuard’s Arizona campus as an additional training location for QAA.
The agreement allows AeroGuard to further expand its international capacity and extend its professional flight training services to future pilots from all over the world. QAA has set high standards for their cadets in training, and AeroGuard’s professionally focused and high-quality curriculum was able to surpass their requirements. AeroGuard’s Arizona location provides an ideal flight training environment with consistent flying weather and extensive airspace complexity for valuable flight experience throughout the entire year.
AeroGuard will deliver a comprehensive training program for the cadets of QAA. In addition to this global expansion, AeroGuard has also previously developed a worldwide footprint with AeroGuard Arabia, its first pilot training campus outside the U.S., opening in Saudi Arabia last year.
Shaikh Jabor Al-Thani, Qatar Aeronautical Academy’s Director General, says “This agreement will enable us to leverage our complementary strengths and capabilities and create new opportunities for collaboration and growth. We believe that this partnership will benefit both our companies, as well as our students and our portfolio. By combining our resources and expertise, we will be able to offer more value-added services, enhance our competitive edge, and expand our market reach.”
AeroGuard has significantly expanded their capacity this year in terms of students, aircraft, facilities, flight instructors, and partnerships. Driving this capacity is their rapidly expanding aircraft fleet, which will soon double in size with the school’s recent announcement with Piper Aircraft for 90 new Piper Archers. These new aircraft will exponentially increase AeroGuard’s capacity, allowing it to train up to 2,000 students and instructors across all of its campuses.
Additionally, AeroGuard’s 600+ U.S. students are training to become Flight Instructors to build their flight experience and required hours for U.S. airlines, providing a pipeline of instructors for AeroGuard to train thousands of international Cadets.
