Australia’s Ansett Aviation Training (AAT) has announced that its Ansett Aviation Training Dubai ATR72-600 full flight simulator has been certified by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). This certification is a significant milestone for AAT and the region as the simulator is the first EASA certified ATR72-600 full flight simulator in the Middle East.
The strategic location of this new pilot training centre located a few minute’s drive from the airport at Dubai South, United Arab Emirates provides airlines with training infrastructure that is easily accessible from all parts of the globe. As the full flight simulator is EASA certified, Ansett Aviation Training will be able to offer EASA training for airlines. In addition, Ansett Aviation Training Dubai can provide training under future approvals from regional NAAs.
Ansett Aviation Training CEO Mark Delany said “We are known globally for delivering world-class training outcomes for our airline customers. Ansett Aviation Training Dubai looks forward to delivering the same quality training to our regional airline customers in our EASA certified ATR72-600 FFS here in Dubai.”
Ansett Aviation Training Dubai’s Khaled Hares said “Our team is excited and ready to now welcome our first pilots for their training. We look forward to ensuring they enjoy their time here with us in Dubai.”
Ansett Aviation Training Dubai’s centre is fully operational, supporting a number of operators and is in active discussion with regional airlines on how to best support their training requirements in 2023 and 2024.
