Dubai South has signed an agreement with Dynamic Advanced Training to set up an aviation safety training academy in the aviation district, set to be the region’s most advanced training facility.

The facility will offer comprehensive Safety and Emergency Procedures (SEP) training, including both theoretical as well as hyper-realistic, practical instruction. The independent academy will cater for a wide range of both corporate and business jets as well as commercial airlines, and will be compliant with international standards including the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA).

Dynamic plans to become an accredited International Air Transport Association (IATA) training centre which will complement a wide offering of other aviation related courses customised to serve ground handling personnel as well as non-aviation safety courses. These include general fire safety, first aid, occupational health and safety, and environment. The academy will be located in the second phase of Dubai South’s “Aerospace Supply Chain” development.

“Training reflects one of our key business verticals and perfectly blends with the aviation ecosystem. Leveraging our strategic location connecting both air and sea mega ports, we are creating a self-sustained urban destination to empower businesses, families and individuals to grow and prosper,” says Khalifa Al Zaffin, executive chairman of Dubai Aviation City Corporation.

“Dynamic Advanced Training will be a state-of-the-art training center unrivalled by any in the region. We thank Dubai South for the great support they have provided to us from the outset all the way to the project’s launch,” says Tariq Hussain Khansaheb, director of Khansaheb Investments, the main investors in Dynamic Advanced Training.

“Conveniently located, we will be able to offer realistic and engaging training at affordable cost,” says Mark Kammer, Co-Founder of Dynamic Advanced Training. “We see a need to bridge the gap between demand and supply in the rapidly developing aviation industry, while at the same time our team of industry experts strive to set new regional and global benchmarks.”
