Horizon International Flight Academy (HIFA), wholly owned by Mubadala Development Company, has said it will continue to expand its training programmes to support and meet the demands of the aviation industry.

The academy’s General Manager, Mohammed Humaidan Al Zaabi said, “Though our primary focus is to offer high standard flight training for military, corporate and civil customers and to fill the gap for helicopter training across the Middle East, we strive to constantly expand our training courses.”

“In fact by 2016, we aim to offer undergraduate degree programs in the field of aviation, to offer internationally certified qualifications in the UAE to ensure that we develop a pipeline of local talent to support the region’s rapidly growing aviation industry.”

Currently chosen by Etihad Airways as the flight training academy for their cadet program, the academy also provides courses for private pilot licenses, commercial pilot licenses, air transport pilot licenses and flight instructor courses, using Bell helicopters and Cessna airplanes.
