Posted 22 September 2016 · Add Comment

Bahrain's Gulf Aviation Academy (GAA) has made a strategic step into the fast growing Indian market through a partnership agreement with India's Speedjet Aviation.

The new arrangement will offer Indian students a comprehensive range of structured training programs for all aviation personnel including pilots, cabin crew, engineers and ground staff with training sessions in GAA’s training facility at Bahrain.
Capt. Dharamraj Shukla, director SpeedJet Aviation said: “The aviation industry is on a high-growth trajectory with India likely to become the third-largest aviation market by 2020.
"As of now, Indian airlines are reporting increased profitability, low-cost carriers have placed heavy orders for new aircraft, there are multitude of new airports coming up and FDI flows into domestic airlines have surged. All these factors combined will lead to a sharp spike in demand for trained aviation personnel. We are confident that with GAA’s brand and credibility, we will be able to attract and hone the best talent for the industry”.
The Academy’s range of training programmes include pre-Pilot  (12-15 months), cabin crew  , ground handling   and type rating .
“India being one of the largest and fastest growing air travel market provides great opportunities for individuals to pursue a career in the aviation sector”, said Capt. Dhaffer Al Abbasi, GAA’s chief executive. “Our state-of-the-art course equipment enables us to offer a comprehensive and modern aviation training infrastructure and set new standards in aviation training. Students also get access to various training facilities around the world through our global affiliates and our training module caters to requirements across APAC, Middle East and Africa.”
