Aviation safety academy to be built in Dubai South

Posted 19 November 2017 · Add Comment

The ambitions of Dubai to create a true aviation hub in its new Aviation City development at Dubai South have been given another boost with the announcement that Dynamic Advanced Training, a specialist provider for aircrew training has signed an agreement to set up an aviation safety training academy in the aviation district.

The cutting edge facility will offer comprehensive safety and emergency procedures (SEP) training, including both theoretical as well as hyper-realistic, practical instruction. The independent academy will cater for a wide range of both corporate and business jets as well as commercial airlines, and will be compliant with international standards including the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA). 

It aims to become operational before the end of 2018.
Dynamic claims to be the first training centre in the MENASA region to offer corporate and business jet specific training for a wide array of business jets, providing premium quality training needs to this specialised niche within the aviation industry.
Plans are also in place for Dynamic to become an accredited International Air Transport Association (IATA) training centre in order to complement a wide offering of other aviation related courses customised to serve ground handling personnel as well as non-aviation safety courses. These include general fire safety, first aid, occupational health and safety, and environment.
Dynamic is backed by Khansaheb Investments which is linked with real estate and civil engineering activities.
“It is an initiative we have launched as part of our dedication and commitment towards the growth of the UAE economy,” said Tariq Hussain Khansaheb, director of Khansaheb Investments. “It will be a state-of-the-art training centre unrivalled by any in the region. We thank Dubai South for the great support they have provided to us from the outset all the way to the project’s launch. We are confident that with our existing partners and management Team, we will continue to contribute towards Dubai South’s success as an Aviation Hub in the region,”
Co-founder of the Dynamic Advanced Training company is Mark Kammer “We will be able to offer realistic and engaging training at affordable cost,” Kammer said. “The leadership team of Dynamic envisions becoming the most advanced provider of aviation safety training programmes for the MENASA region. We see a need to bridge the gap between demand and supply in the rapidly developing aviation industry, while at the same time our team of industry experts strive to set new regional and global benchmarks.”
Dynamic will invest in some of the world’s most advanced training equipment to be able to offer experiential training at its best. The facility will be equipped with full motion Cabin Emergency Evacuation Simulators providing both corporate and commercial aviation customers with accredited training that covers a wide variety of the latest corporate and commercial aircraft types, both wide and narrow body, in near-to-realistic environments.
Khalifa Al Zaffin, (pictured right) executive chairman of Dubai Aviation City Corporation said he welcomed the new agreement. “Training reflects one of our key business verticals and perfectly blends with the aviation ecosystem. Leveraging our strategic location connecting both air and sea mega ports, we are creating a self-sustained urban destination to empower businesses, families and individuals to grow and prosper,” he said.
