Emirates Flight Training Academy Graduates 50th Cadet Pilots

The Emirates Flight Training Academy (EFTA) held its second graduation ceremony today, with another 25 cadets successfully completing the Academy’s world-class training programme. This takes the total number of EFTA cadet graduates since the inaugural ceremony last year, to 50.

The graduation ceremony took place earlier today at the Academy in Dubai South.

The ceremony was attended by His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Airline and Group as well as members of Emirates’ senior management team.

Located in Dubai South, the Emirates Flight Training Academy was launched by Emirates in 2017 to qualify UAE nationals and international students to become pilots.

The Academy combines cutting-edge learning technologies and a modern fleet of 27 training aircraft (Cirrus SR22 G6 single-engine piston aircraft and Embraer Phenom 100EV very light jet aircraft) to train cadets with no previous knowledge of flying.

Cadets are trained using simulators, single and multi-engine aircraft; and are provided with theoretical knowledge of the aviation industry to facilitate their transition into the airline business.

The Emirates Flight Training Academy highlights Emirates’ commitment as a global leader in aviation, to train and mentor pilots and meet the future talent requirements of the broader aviation industry as demand gradually recovers.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
