Celebrating a proud moment in its rich legacy, Alpha Aviation Academy recently announced that its pilot training center in Sharjah, UAE registered its hundredth cadet to have completed formal training under its wings.
Established in the year 2008, Alpha Aviation Academy, a subsidiary of holding company C&C Alpha Group where Mr. Bhanu Choudhrie holds a directorship, provides a wide range of services and specialises in programmes aimed at cadet assessment and selection, type ratings and flagship ab initio training programs, all of which are tailored and optimised to meet the operational needs of its partner airlines. Since its inception 7 years ago, trainee pilots from more than 40 different nations around the world have successfully completed the Multi-Crew Pilot Licence (MPL) course, which prepares candidates to carve a niche for themselves in the world of commercial aviation.
A joint venture between Alpha Aviation Group, which is a global aviation training provider, and Air Arabia, an emerging low-cost airline, Alpha Aviation Academy has state-of-the-art facilities at Sharjah International Airport, along with the most technically advanced aircraft simulators and team of highly experienced instructors.
The programme structured around five phases laid out in a competency based format ensures that each trainee acquires the required skills and behaviours before they move on to the next level. The ground level or the initial stage consist of theoretical knowledge needed to be a commercial pilot, from there they graduate to the next four levels eventually, which involves learning flying skills, culminating in Advanced Flying Skills and training on the Airbus A320.
With a 100% placement track record for its graduates from the UAE and 97% from the Philippines, Alpha Aviation Academy is also the largest provider of First Officers via the MPL route in the Philippines and the UAE.
