The Cirrus SR22 G6 aircraft will form the backbone of the Emirates Flight Training Academy’s training fleet.
DUBAI: Emirates Flight Training Academy (EFTA) has taken delivery of its first two Cirrus SR22 G6 training aircraft in Dubai. These are the first of the 22 single-piston engine Cirrus aircraft that have been ordered by the academy to train ab initio pilots.
The two Cirrus SR22 G6 aircraft, A6-CTA and A6-CTB, landed in Dubai following a transatlantic journey spanning over 13,000 kilometres.
Given the size of the aircraft and other restrictions including the size of the fuel tanks and range, the journey from Cirrus’ manufacturing facilities in the USA to Dubai had to be split into multiple segments.
