The partnership will see batches of Alpha cadets undertake 3 months of the Core Flying phase of their pilot training programme at FujAA’s campus in Fujairah. The cadets will be trained in line with Alpha’s world-class training standards before they return to the Sharjah campus to commence the Basic Phase of the pilot training programme which encompasses the transition from single pilot to Multi-Crew Cooperation (MCC).
Preparations are now underway for the next batch of 8 cadets to commence their Core Flying training by the 15th of March 2020.
The Core Flying phase involves cadets undertaking 70 hours of flight training on a single-engine aircraft where they learn how to effectively handle and fly an aircraft, in preparation for the upcoming phases of their training including Line Training with Air Arabia where they build up 1,500 flying hours on an Airbus A320 aircraft. To date, over 400 graduates have gone to fly with Air Arabia and other international airlines.
