Posted 16 January 2018 · Add Comment

Oman Air has taken the initiative to embrace the Multi-Crew Pilot License Programme (MPL) in close coordination with the Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA) to issue the first Omani Pilot License.

The programme is designed and customized for Oman Air training in accordance with PACA rules and regulations pertaining to the approved Pilot Training. Oman Air has achieved an important milestone in 2016 when the state-of-the-art Oman Air Flight Training Centre (OAFTC) was inaugurated.

There are currently over 20 cadets enrolled in the MPL programme, distributed in various batches on a full scholarship abroad. The cadets were assessed in accordance with Oman Air selection criteria that included theoretical and practical competency-based assessment.

Captain Ali Sulaiman, EVP Operations, said: “We are delighted that for the first time in Oman, Oman Air has managed to obtain PACA approvals for this unique programme. The Oman Air Flight Training Centre (OAFTC) is one of the tools that the cadets will utilised post MPL graduation. The OAFTC is equipped with high standard training facilities that are required to continue the training of our cadets after the program. This really puts us at the forefront of pilot and cabin crew training and demonstrates how our state-of-art facility and commitment to excellence is resulting in innovative and effective new programmes that will help shape the future of aviation”.
