In cooperation with strategic partners, the aviation training centre Pier 7 Aviation, BAA Training UAE is ready to provide Type Rating and Cabin Crew training, full flight simulator dry or wet lease services. The new location of Boeing 737 CL and Airbus A320 full flight simulators complements 26 existing ones where BAA Training can provide aviation training.
