Accordingly Captain Abdulla Al Hammadi, Vice President of the Emirates Flight Training Academy, the demand for pilots will continue to grow globally and within the region, despite the recent pause that we have seen as a result of the pandemic.

Located in Dubai South, the state-of-the-art Emirates Flight Training Academy is spread over 164,000 square metres (the area of 200 football fields), and includes 36 modern classrooms, next-generation simulators, and a fleet of 27 Cirrus SR22 G6 single-engine piston and Embraer Phenom 100EV very light jet aircraft.

All enrolled cadets stay in modern accommodation and have access to a range of comprehensive sports and leisure facilities. The EFTA facilities are designed to accommodate over 600 cadets at a time.
