Emirates Flight Training academy adds DA42 to training fleet

Emirates Flight Training Academy (EFTA), have taken delivery of a new fleet of Diamond DA42-VI light piston twin-engine aircraft, enabling the academy to commence multi-engine piston (MEP) training, serving as a bridge between training on a single engine and a light jet, and rounding off EFTA’s training fleet to 30 aircraft.

With a range of 1,225 nautical miles, the aircraft made their journey from Vienna, Austria to Dubai with EFTA’s instructor pilots making stop overs in Heraklion, Crete and Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. Captain Abdulla Al Hammadi, Vice President Emirates Flight Training Academy, said: “The Diamonds fit perfectly in between our single engine aircraft and the very light jets in our training fleet. Reliable, cutting-edge and eco-friendly, they are fully aligned to our goals as our trainees now also gain experience on multi-engine piston aircraft. Our cadets are delighted with the addition to the fleet. It means more aircraft types and a more varied learning experience.”
