Alpha Aviation Academy inaugurates milestone 50th batch

Posted 25 February 2019 · Add Comment

Alpha Aviation Academy (AAA), the Middle East’s leading pilot training providers, and the second largest provider of the Multi-Crew Pilot Licence (MPL) in the world, is celebrating the inauguration of its milestone 50th cadet batch.

 

The 50th batch comprises of 14 cadets, aged between 17 and 28 years old, from 12 different countries: ten cadets from Asia, two from Africa, one from South America, and one from North America.

The newly joined cadets come from a variety of professional and academic backgrounds. This includes from China, Yongle Song, whose love for aviation throughout his cabin crew career with a major GCC airline, has prompted him to pursue a pilot career with Alpha Aviation Academy.

Joining him will be a number of other international cadets including Abdullah Hamdan, a Jordanian previous employee of a major UAE airport who, having heard about AAA’s MPL program from current AAA cadets and graduated pilots, has decided to ambitiously pursue a career in aviation.

Both cadets will be joined by the Lebanese Biology-Chemistry university major student Hady Haidar, and by Julio Calderon from Colombia, who wants to follow in his pilot father’s footsteps as a successful aviator; and by Muhammad Ibrahim Lodhi from Pakistan, whose search for the best MPL program providers in the world lead him to Alpha Aviation Academy in UAE to launch his awaited pilot career journey.

The international nature of the group is a result of Alpha Aviation’s ongoing diversity campaign, which aims to get more international cadets and women trained as pilots in the UAE.

The diversity campaign itself comes as the UAE celebrates 2019 as the Year of Tolerance, which aims to highlight the UAE as a global capital for tolerance, and as a bridge between people of different cultures.

Commenting on AAA’s 50th batch, Captain Nadhem AlHamad, Alpha Aviation Academy’s general manager, said: “On the occasion of AAA’s 10th anniversary, we are delighted to welcome our intake of Batch 50 cadets.

 

"The batch’s diversity is testament to our commitment to engage with cadets of all nationalities and cultures, and we look forward to helping these ambitious young cadets fulfil their dreams as an airline pilot.”
