Dubai opens the door to PPL opportunities and beyond following new deal

Posted 18 January 2017 · Add Comment

Emirates Aviation Services has formed a partnership with training specialist Airways Aviation to offer a direct pathway to a Private Pilot License (PPL) in the UAE through to a Multi-Crew Pilot Licence (MPL) in Europe or Australia.




This new partnership allows aspiring pilots in Dubai and the GCC states the chance to study for a PPL in their region and, upon completion and being awarded a contract, move onto a MPL at one of Airways Aviation’s EASA or CASA training academies.

Emirates Aviation Services will deliver the Airways Aviation core MPL training programme in Dubai, enabling the company to supply exceptional airline pilots for an industry where pilots are in high demand.

Ian Cooper, CEO, Airways Aviation, says: “The UAE is an important region for Airways Aviation. Middle Eastern airlines are highly desired by prospective pilots, so it makes complete sense for us to partner with Emirates Aviation Services, an established training provider in the UAE. We are now working together to provide high-quality airline pilot training for local students and a direct pathway onto the flight line.”

Abdullah Al Ansari, director, Emirates Aviation Services, said: “This partnership with Airways Aviation will enable us to achieve our vision of being a leading training provider of airline pilots. Utilising the company’s exceptional quality of training programmes and senior teaching staff, we’re confident that we will produce some of the best pilots in the UAE.”

The partnership with Emirates Aviation Services also provides Airways Aviation with the opportunity to develop new airline training programmes and as well as developing new relationships with airlines in the region.
