NBAA - GCAA approves crew medical training for UAE
International SOS company MedAire announced today that it has won approval from the UAE's General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) to provide first aid training to aviation crewmembers in Dubai.
“This is a key approval for MedAire and we worked closely with the GCAA through a meticulous approval process to attain it,” explains MedAire CEO Grant Jeffery. “It is especially important for our MedAire clients whose first aid training must be GCAA-compliant to meet their operator standards.”
The GCAA approval will allow MedAire to conduct its Management of In-flight Illness and Injury program—which exceeds GCAA requirements—in Dubai.
GCAA will conduct an annual audit of MedAire’s training curriculum, instructors and facilities to ensure they maintain the level of excellence necessary to meet the requirements for first aid training in Dubai.
MedAire provides aviation clients with fully integrated life-saving medical solutions to patients in the air and at sea—so first responders are never alone. MedAire offers 24/7 real-time access to emergency room doctors any time of day, from anywhere in the world. Its crew medical training is developed and delivered by medical professionals to build confidence and first-hand experience.
