This brings the total count of devices ready for this training to two and capable of handling regional high demand for it. 

The new FFS device will now include training for the new engine types and will allow GAA to serve all the Middle Eastern carriers whom have recently taken delivery of their neo fleets in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, UAE, Oman, and others.


Captain Dhaffer Al Abbasi,  CEO, said: “We are pleased to have received this double seal of approvals on the dual aircraft types, as we are calling it at GAA a ‘2x2’ great win and honor.  I would like to thank the relevant support from the stakeholders involved in getting these approvals in record time.  I particularly would like to thank H.E. the Minister of Transportation and Telecommunication, Kamal Bin Ahmed Mohamed, as well as the Gulf Air Group, Bahrain Civil Aviation Affairs, and especially the BCAA for the full support in this specific project and overall to the success of GAA.  Their unfaltering support to the academy’s ambitions is what allows GAA to better serve its client base.”
