Alpha Aviation Academy to expand to Australia

Posted 20 March 2019 · Add Comment

Alpha Aviation Academy (AAA), a Middle East pilot training provider, is to partner with international flight training provider Airways Aviation.

 

The partnership will see batches of AAA cadets undertake the three months core flying phase of their MPL training at Airways Aviation’s Australia campus each year, where they will train to the highest possible standards before returning to the UAE to commence the Advance Flight Simulator training phases.

The core flying phase involves cadets undertaking 70 hours of flight training in a single-engine aircraft, where they learn how to effectively handle and fly the aircraft in preparation for a career with Air Arabia, the Middle East’s leading low-cost airline. To date over 360 AAA graduates have gone on to fly for Air Arabia.

AAA has partnered with Airways Aviation given their proven track record in successfully training cadets to the highest standards across Europe and Australia, from entry-level theory right through to the Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL).

The partnership between AAA and Airways Aviation has been signed by Captain Nadhem AlHamad, General Manager of AAA and Mr. Ted Kabbout, CEO of Airways Aviation Australia, with the first batch of AAA cadets to start their training in Australia in late March 2019.

AAA have established a number of other partnerships over the past year, including with Etihad Aviation Training in July 2018, and with AAA’s sister academy in Philippines (Alpha Aviation Group) in January 2019.

AAA’s continued drive to get more pilots into the skies comes as the aviation industry predicts that close to 800,000 more commercial pilots will be required over the next 15 to 20 years to meet growing industry demand.

Ted Kabbout, Airways Aviation’s CEO, said: “Over the past decade Alpha Aviation Academy has emerged as the Middle East’s pre-eminent pilot training provider, and we look forward to working with them helping train their next generation of ambitious cadets.”

 

Captain Nadhem AlHamad, Alpha Aviation Academy’s general manager, said: “Our partnership with Airways Aviation is the next phase in the expansion of our international core flying training providers.

 

“We are committed to ensuring our ambitious cadets receive the world’s best training, and all the skills needed for a successful career in the skies.”
