Approved by the UAE GCAA, the trainings offered include Airbus A320 Type-Rating Recurrent/Revalidation, Airbus A320 Type-Rating Renewal, Initial A320 Type-Rating, Airbus Cross Crew Qualification (CCQ) and Foreign Licence Conversion.


The delivery of the trainings comes with the increasing demand for maintaining pilots’ proficiency amid the global pandemic that has impacted the global pilot job market. In response to this, Alpha aims to help pilots stay up-to-date with their training needs.

Captain Nadhem AlHamad, general manager, Alpha Aviation Academy UAE, said: “The launch of the trainings during such unprecedented times gives us a sense of great pride as Alpha Aviation continues to further diversify its portfolio and introduce new products to serve and educate more pilots from all around the world.


He added: “The trainings will offer greater convenience and flexibility for pilots who are looking to maintain their Type-Ratings, whether they are staying in the UAE or planning to return back to their country of origin, as Alpha is the first ATO to be granted approval by the UAE GCAA to conduct the trainings for pilots who hold or have held UAE CPL or ATPL licences.

This commendable decision by the UAE GCAA is a testament to the nation’s leading and globally-acclaimed response to the COVID-19 crisis.”


He continued: “We are optimistic that the launch of these new training products will mark the beginning of many new projects and products to follow. As the UAE gradually reopens its borders and resumes international flights and business activities, we fondly anticipate further developments from the aviation industry. Meanwhile, we remain highly committed to providing word-class training and equipping our clients with the skills and knowledge that surpass the global standards to launch and maintain a stellar career in the aviation industry.”
