Boeing  announced a partnership with the Emirates Flight Training Academy, a division of Emirates Airline, to collaborate on a comprehensive training curriculum and software infrastructure to help train pilot cadets.

“We are leveraging Boeing’s expertise in airline pilot training to identify opportunities to enhance the Academy’s curriculum” said Captain Alan Stealey, principal, Emirates Flight Training Academy.

Boeing is creating a customized, integrated software system for managing cadet learning and training using software developed by the recently-acquired Peters Software GmbH. Peters Software is a leading provider of European Aviation Safety Agency-based training systems and content for early stage (“ab-initio”) aviation training.

“The program developed by Boeing will enhance the Emirates Flight Training Academy to efficiently train pilot cadets by integrating everything the academy needs into one place,” said Sherry Carbary, vice president, Boeing Flight Services. “Boeing has forecasted the industry will need 617,000 pilots by 2035. We are dedicated to work with customers to create programs to help fill that demand.”

The agreement with the Emirates Flight Training Academy is part of Boeing’s Pilot Development Program, a comprehensive program designed to meet the training requirements to become a qualified airline first officer.  

Emirates Flight Training Academy, currently under construction at Al Maktoum International Airport - Dubai World Central (DWC), is scheduled to open in October 2016.

Emirates designed the facility to promote advancements in four key areas of pilot training: interactive learning for theoretical subjects in classrooms, practical learning in the most capable training aircraft, practical learning in advanced flight simulators, and airline-focused line-oriented flight training. Once completed, the Academy will be able to accommodate over 600 students at a time.
