Etihad Aviation Training, part of Etihad Aviation Group, has reintroduced its world-class aviation training organisation in a bid to become one of the most comprehensive aviation training facilities worldwide.
Centred at two locations in Abu Dhabi, Etihad Aviation Training is a commercially-focused business open to external customers, while maintaining the operational and safety values that have underpinned Etihad’s training services to date.
“Etihad Aviation Training is an ambitious enterprise, pursuing its mandate to provide outstanding training services to a global audience,” commented group CEO, Etihad Aviation Group, Tony Douglas. “The growth of the business will mirror the expansion of the global training market and we are excited about our expanding portfolio of programmes and products. These services are accessible to both Etihad Airways and now, for the first time, to external customers.”
Etihad Aviation Training offers a wide range of training products and services, including airline training, type rating, cabin crew safety training, instructor training, cadet programmes and aircraft maintenance training, making it one of the largest training facilities in the Middle East.
The facilities comprise 10 full-flight simulators, with two additional devices arriving later this year, including the first Airbus A350-900 and a third Boeing 787-9.
This will enable Etihad Aviation Training to take advantage of the increasing global training demand, particularly from within the GCC, Europe, Indian sub-continent, Africa and Southeast Asia.
