Emirates CAE Flight Training
Emirates-CAE Flight Training, founded in 2002, is jointly operated by Emirates, a global connector of people and places, and CAE, a global leader in modelling, simulation and training for civil aviation and defence.
ECFT operates 2 training facilities in Dubai.
The original facility, adjacent to the Emirates Aviation College in Al Garhoud, Dubai, was the first training centre of its kind in the Middle East to be approved by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA).
The Al Garhoud centre has 14 training bays and is one of the largest pilot training facilities in the world. It serves 200 aviation clients and trains more than 10,000 pilots and technicians a year on a range of Airbus, Bell Helicopter, Boeing, Bombardier, Dassault, Gulfstream and Hawker Beechcraft aircraft types. In addition, management works in close collaboration with more than 20 different National Aviation Authorities to ensure that their specific requirements are fulfilled.
The recently opened DSO facility initially houses five full-flight simulator (FFS) training bays, ECFT’s new 55,000 square foot facility already boasts industry-leading Airbus and Boeing flight training simulators with breakthrough visual realism, cockpit replication and high-fidelity avionics simulation with flight and ground-handling characteristics indistinguishable from an operational aircraft. The centre also features ten briefing/de-briefing rooms, three large classrooms and a high-tech computer-based training room offering clients everything they need to prepare pilots and technicians for a safe career in the skies.
ECFT DSO facility currently offers a wide array of training services including A320 and B737NG type ratings, conversion courses, recurrent training, license renewals and revalidations for airlines or individuals and many other type specific training courses.
