Dubai: Skyborne signs training link with Etihad Aviation Training

Posted 19 November 2019 · Add Comment

UK-based Skyborne Airline Academy signed a deal at the Dubai show with Etihad Aviation Training Academy (EAT) to conduct the third phase of its IndiGo cadet pilot programme.

It will deliver combined multi-crew cooperation (MCC) and Indian regulator DGCA-approved type rating training on the Airbus A320.
Lee Woodward, Skyborne’s CEO, said: “We are confident that EAT, with its state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, will provide the perfect setting for our IndiGo cadets to complete their training before advancing into employment and flying the line as a first officer with India’s leading airline.”
The first cadets will be with EAT in December 2020.
EAT's managing director, Paolo La Cava, added: “Etihad has 1,800 pilots, a lot of experienced instructors and our facilities are world class. So why don’t we maximise our devices, optimise the utilisation of crew resources, and use the same trainers to train other airlines?”
