EAT is a well-established Approved Training Organisation (ATO) with one of the largest training facilities in the Middle East region. Student pilots will spend three months in Al Ain, being trained on the Cessna, before returning to Alpha in Sharjah to start the Advance Flight Simulator training phases.

The partnership signifies the growing pilot training industry in the UAE and around the world. As the global pilot shortage intensifies both organisations are scaling up to meet the pilot demand of airlines worldwide.

Over the past few years, Alpha has completed the Core Flying component of training in Europe and this new collaboration, which offers students the full spectrum of aviation training within the UAE, enhances the country’s positioning as a global hub of aviation training.

Alpha, a joint venture between the global pilot training Alpha Aviation Group and the UAE’s low-cost carrier Air Arabia, has over 250 pilots in training which will join Air Arabia for training and airline experience as First Officers. The academy currently has students from more than 62 nationalities and is seeing a growing number of female pilot students enrol in the pilot training programme.

In addition to the flight training school in Al Ain, Etihad Aviation Training offers a state-of-the-art training facility in Abu Dhabi, featuring 11 full flight simulators. The company’s highly experienced instructors offer a wide range of courses to Etihad Airways’ pilots as well as commercial pilots from around the world.

Capt. Paolo La Cava, Director & Accountable Manager, Etihad Aviation Training, said: “Etihad is pleased to collaborate with Alpha Aviation Academy to offer world-class aviation training. The team of talented and experienced instructors at Etihad and state-of-the-art facilities and training aircraft make this one of the best choices for aviation training in the world.”

Capt. Nadhem AlHamad, General Manager, Alpha Aviation Academy, said: “Our partnership with Etihad represents the next stage of our ambitious Academy expansion, and with demand for commercial pilots at an all-time high we are delighted to be partnering with Etihad to ensure our cadets continue to receive the best industry training possible.”
