Posted 9 March 2018 · Add Comment

Etihad Aviation Training, part of Etihad Aviation Group, has relaunched its aviation training organisation.

Based at two locations in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, Etihad Aviation Training, previously known as Etihad Flight College, is a commercially-focused business open to external customers, while retaining the operational and safety values that have underpinned Etihad’s training services to-date.  

Tony Douglas, Group Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Aviation Group, said: “Etihad Aviation Training is an ambitious enterprise, pursuing its mandate to provide outstanding training services to a global audience.  

“The growth of the business will mirror the expansion of the global training market and we are excited about our expanding portfolio of programmes and products. These services are accessible to both Etihad Airways and now, for the first time, to external customers.”

Etihad Aviation Training offers a wide range of training products and services, including airline training, type rating, cabin crew safety training, instructor training and cadet programmes, and aircraft maintenance training, making it one of the largest training facilities in the Middle East.

Ten full-flight simulators are currently in operation at with two additional devices arriving later this year, including the first Airbus A350-900 and a third Boeing 787-9. 

This will enable Etihad Aviation Training to take advantage of the increasing global training demand, particularly from within the GCC, Europe, Indian sub-continent, Africa and Southeast Asia.  

Captain Paolo La Cava, Director Etihad Aviation Training, said:  “We are always looking for ways to expand our operations and activities, and the relaunch of the center is the perfect platform for us to do this.   

“By expanding and redeveloping our facilities within the UAE, we are able to offer a one-stop solution to our customers – from individual pilots to global airlines, and I’m confident that we will grow to become a globally recognised aviation training centre.”
