Airways Aviation and Emirates Aviation Services have formed a partnership to offer a direct pathway to a Private Pilot Licence (PPL) in the UAE, through to a Multi-Crew Pilot Licence (MPL) in Europe or Australia. This new partnership allows aspiring pilots in Dubai and the GCC states the chance to study for a PPL in their local region and, upon completion and being awarded a contract, move onto a MPL at one of Airways Aviation’s EASA or CASA training academies. Emirates Aviation Services will deliver the core MPL training programme in Dubai.
Ian Cooper, CEO, Airways Aviation, said: “The UAE is an important region for Airways Aviation. Middle Eastern airlines are highly desired by prospective pilots, so it makes complete sense for us to partner with Emirates Aviation Services, an established training provider in the UAE. We are now working together to provide high-quality airline pilot training for local students and a direct pathway onto the flight line.”
Abdullah Al Ansari, director, Emirates Aviation Services, added: “This partnership with Airways Aviation will enable us to achieve our vision of being a leading training provider of airline pilots…we’re confident that we will produce some of the best pilots in the UAE.”
The partnership with Emirates Aviation Services also provides Airways Aviation the opportunity to develop new airline training programmes and as well as developing new relationships with airlines in the region
