Alpha Aviation Academy expands to Australia

News — 27.03.19 BY Jill Stockbridge

Alpha Aviation Academy (AAA), a leading pilot training provider in the Middle East, and a recognised provider of the Multi-Crew Pilot Licence (MPL), is to partner with international flight training provider Airways Aviation, with the first batch of AAA cadets to start their training in Australia in late March 2019.

The partnership will see batches of AAA cadets undertake the three-month core flying phase of their MPL training at Airways Aviation’s Australia campus each year, where they will train to the highest possible standards before returning to the UAE to commence the Advance Flight Simulator training phases.

The core flying phase involves cadets undertaking 70 hours of flight training in a single-engine aircraft, where they learn how to effectively handle and fly the aircraft in preparation for a career in commercial aviation.

AAA has partnered with Airways Aviation given their proven track record in successfully training cadets to the highest standards across Europe and Australia, from entry-level theory right through to the Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL).

AAA have established a number of other partnerships over the past year, including with Etihad Aviation Training in July 2018, and with AAA’s sister academy in Philippines (Alpha Aviation Group) in January 2019.
