26th Dec 2022

On a glittering night studded with industry stars, Emirates Flight Training Academy (EFTA) won the much-coveted Aviation Training Provider of the Year Award at the Aviation Business Middle East Awards 2022.

The award recognises the achievements of a leading training provider or an aviation training academy offering flagship courses to develop the industry. EFTA won on the basis of its course structure, subject range, training facility, and market feedback.

On its website, Aviation Business ME said: “Emirates Flight Training Academy trains the pilots of tomorrow to meet the unique post-pandemic market requirements and be on par with the highest global pilot training standards, through highly interactive theoretical learning tools, advanced digital content and immersive VR technology, hands-on instruction of modern training aircraft, advanced flight simulators, and airline-focused line-oriented flight training.”

Capt Abdulla Al Hammadi, Vice President Emirates Flight Training Academy said: “This award comes on the heels of our third graduation ceremony, and we couldn’t be prouder of what we have achieved. This award is a great milestone in EFTA’s fascinating and fulfilling journey. It’s an affirming moment for our 100 plus graduates who are now part of the aviation industry, our current cohort of 250 students, our instructors and every single person on our team.”
