A total of 35 UAE Nationals have just graduated from the Emirates airline National Cadet Pilot Programme, an increase of 100% on last year’s graduate figures.

During the graduation ceremony, held at the Emirates Group Headquarters, His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive, Emirates Airline and Group and Captain Abdulla Al Hammadi, National Cadet Pilot Manager, Emirates, presented trophies and certificates to the 35 high-fliers who have successfully completed the two-and-a-half-year pilot training programme.

“I am delighted that we have doubled our UAE National graduates in less than 12 months. This is an incredible achievement and further highlights Emirates’ drive towards increasing and maintaining UAE Nationals within our workforce,” said His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive, Emirates Airline and Group.

“Today’s graduates have shown an incredible ability to succeed in their goals and I applaud them for the dedication and determination they have displayed in completing this challenging training programme. These bright, young and professional Emiratis will help shape the future of Emirates and will play an integral role in servicing over 100 destinations across our global network.”

Emirates invests over AED 1.2 million in training each National Cadet Pilot and in the last five years has invested more than AED 100 million in the programme. Throughout their careers with Emirates these National Cadet Pilots will also receive ongoing on-the-job training in line with continual changes to aircraft technologies.

With Emirates announcing two new routes into Africa, Durban and Luanda, as well as a continued push to strengthen existing routes through increased frequency, the National Cadet Pilot Training Programme will continue to remain an important part of Emirates operations in helping to secure and train UAE National flight deck professionals for the future.

Launched in 1993, Emirates’ National Cadet Pilot Programme comprises a Foundation Course in English and Aviation Science conducted in Dubai, over about twelve months. Cadets then spend a year at Flight Training Adelaide at Parafield Airport, Australia, to gain a Commercial Pilot’s License with a Multi-Engine Instrument Rating (CPL/Multi IR). In the third phase of the programme, spread over six months, the cadets train on flight simulators at the Emirates Training College in Dubai.
