Emirates-CAE Flight Training and flydubai announce type-rating training programme

Emirates-CAE Flight Training (ECFT) announced a long-term pilot training agreement with flydubai. This arrangement will provide instruction on the Boeing 737-800 aircraft to those interested in having an opportunity to fly for flydubai. The programme is offered to commercial pilots who have less than 1,500 flying hours. The programme is currently underway at the Emirates-CAE Flight Training (ECFT) and Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO) centres.

As the aviation industry in the Middle East continues to grow, training facilities for pilots to gain additional experience and skills are essential. This programme demonstrates the commitment of ECFT and flydubai to ensuring pilots are offered world-class training opportunities.

The ECFT type-rating programme represents an opportunity for low-hour commercial pilots to accumulate the required number of flying hours and become type rated. Upon successful completion of the programme, pilots will be able to apply for any potential vacancies at flydubai and may then be invited to undergo a comprehensive evaluation and interview process.

“flydubai pilots have trained solely with ECFT since the airline’s beginning. The trademark of ECFT’s training is defined by high-quality,” said Kenneth Gile, Chief Operating Officer at flydubai. “With our focus on safety and passenger confidence, we seek to hire the best talent in the industry and have chosen ECFT as a trusted partner to help us find qualified pilots to join our team of passionate and dedicated people.”

“Identifying and training qualified pilot candidates for growing airlines such as flydubai is an important element of the portfolio of products and services CAE offers to airlines,” said Walter Visser, Managing Director of Emirates-CAE Flight Training. “Our mission is to be the training partner of choice for our customers and this programme is another example of how we work with our customers to cater to their specific training needs. Our instructional programmes use innovative methodologies and best-in-class instructors to ensure the safety and efficiency of our customer operations.”

Pilots should be between 20 and 30 years old, hold a valid 1st Class Medical and have a commercial pilot license (CPL/IR Multi Engine with MCC or Frozen ATPL with a good educational background specifically in English, physics and mathematics) with a minimum of 220 flying hours.
