L3 CTS cadets to train at Etihad Aviation Training

Posted 2 July 2018 · Add Comment

L3 Commercial Training Solutions (CTS) and Etihad Aviation Training (EAT) have signed an agreement enabling cadets enrolled on the L3 Airline Academy Integrated ATPL course to undertake foundation flight training at EAT’s training facility in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates.

 

The agreement will increase L3’s capacity for flight training, enabling it to meet the demand for its industry-leading ATPL Commercial Pilot career program. It ensures the continuation of the renowned professionalism and quality of the training performed by the Approved Training Organisation (ATO).

The agreement offers a new location for cadets to undertake flight training in the emirate of Abu Dhabi. EAT is a well-established ATO with one of the largest training facilities in the Middle East region, offering fantastic facilities, high training standards and incredible weather for flying.

EAT has built a legacy of producing cadets for a number of commercial airlines, offering a wide range of products such as CPL/IR, ATPL and MPL training. The training is complemented by the state-of-the-art simulator facility located in Abu Dhabi, making EAT the ideal choice to support the needs of L3 moving forward.

“With its clear blue skies and light commercial traffic, 4.000-meter runway with ILS and non-precision approach navigation aids, and a fleet of impressive ‘advanced display technology’ devices, we believe EAT is the perfect location for our Airline Academy”, said Mark Bond, Vice President Training Services, L3 CTS. “We are delighted to work with EAT, allowing us to offer more flight training locations for our cadets while ensuring we continue to maintain the highest safety, training and experience standards that we strive for.”

Capt. Paolo La Cava, Director & Accountable Manager, Etihad Aviation Training, said: “There is a growing requirement for high quality pilots across the aviation industry and EAT is ideally placed to provide this world class training. We are pleased to be working with L3 and look forward to welcoming their cadets to foundation flight training.” 

The first group of L3 cadets will commence training at EAT in August 2018. The course undertaken at the site will integrate with training performed at L3’s EASA Airline Academy sites in the U.K., New Zealand and Portugal.
