EAG sets course for Think Science 2017

Posted 18 April 2017 · Add Comment

Etihad Aviation Group (EAG) has deployed pilots and engineers at Think Science 2017 to promote aviation careers as part of national efforts to engage youth in science and technology.

The 18-20 April event at Dubai World Trade Centre is organised by Emirates Foundation and is one of the largest science fairs in the region.

Sheikh Sultan bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, managing director of Emirates Foundation, officially opened the event and later toured EAG’s stand.

Visitors to EAG’s stand will be able to get behind the controls of a flight simulator and experience what it’s like to fly an aircraft. Pilots and cadet pilots are on hand to answer questions from those considering a career in the skies.

Etihad Airways Engineering representatives are present, displaying a jet engine model, to outline what’s involved in supporting the airline’s 120-plus fleet of aircraft. A video display also highlights EAG’S role in developing biofuel through the pioneering ‘Sustainable Bioenergy Research Consortium.’

Captain Salah Al Farajalla, Etihad Airways’ senior vice president Security and National Pilot Development, said: “It is vital for the UAE’s economic development that we attract young Emiratis into the professions that help fuel future growth. We hope that our presence at Think Science 2017 will stimulate interest and encourage discussion around science and technology and encourage the UAE’s youth to pursue careers in these dynamic fields, perhaps with Etihad Aviation Group.”
