Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 14 July 2011

Emirates-CAE Flight Training (ECFT), a joint venture between Emirates Group and CAE, is to open a second training facility in Dubai.

The new facility will provide additional training capacity for airline pilots and aviation maintenance technicians.

Scheduled to open in 2012, the new facility will initially house four full-flight simulator (FFS) bays with plans to expand to as many as 10 bays.

The first FFSs installed will replicate the Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 families of aircraft.

Continued strong airline growth in the Middle East and neighbouring regions is driving the need for additional highly qualified flight deck crew and maintenance personnel said Gary Chapman, ECFT Chairman. Our partnership has proven over many years, the ability to consistently provide world-class training programs that leverage market-leading simulation technology.

The current ECFT facility has played an integral part in the UAEs aviation industry. Located at the Emirates Aviation College campus near Dubai International Airport, the current centre officially opened in 2003 with six FFS bays and is approaching full capacity with 12 full-flight simulators.

Training is provided for Airbus A320/ACJ, Boeing 737 NG/BBJ, Boeing 777, Bombardier Global Express, Dassault Falcon 7X, 900EX EASy and 2000EX EASy, Gulfstream IV, V and 550, Hawker Beechcraft 800, 800XP and 800 XCPi, and Bell Helicopter 212 and 412 aircraft types.

The EmiratesCAE Flight Training Centre has been approved by Joint Aviation Authorities (JAA), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) standards and U.A.E (GCAA) Standards.
