This will be used for both pilots and cabin crew as new A321 NEO aircrafts will be added to the fleet from 2020 and onwards.  This device is part of an expansion plan that the academy has embarked on as part of its strategy.

 

 Captain Dhaffer Al Abbasi, CEO of GAA said: “This purchase underpins the cooperation between GAA and Gulf Air, further confirming the role of GAA as being the national Aviation Training Academy.  This device primarily has been sourced primarily to support Gulf Air’s training requirements.  I would like to thank the Gulf Air Group (GFG), GAA’s Board of Directors and Kamal Bin Ahmed, the Chairman of the Academy for his confidence and endorsement to GAA’s management to jointly invest in this device and also the team at Gulf Air.”

 

He added: “The training that this device will enable is critical to the airline being able to meet its operative goals and also support with their fleet growth.  GAA is always seeking to play a supportive role to Bahrain’s national carrier, the aviation sector, and the training industry overall.”
