Etihad Aviation Training (EAT) has signed a contract with Gulf Air to offer full flight simulator training to Gulf Air’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner pilots.

  • The contract strengthens the ties between Etihad Aviation Group and Gulf Air following the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the two companies at the Bahrain International Airshow in November.
  • As part of the agreement, Gulf Air will dry lease EAT’s Full Flight Simulators at the training facility located in Abu Dhabi. The training will be conducted by Gulf Air instructors at the Etihad Training facility.
  • EAT currently boasts 11 Full Flight Simulators (FFS) including three Airbus A320 FFS devices and two Boeing 787 devices.
  • The facility is expanding and will soon open a third B787 FFS device which will be available in Abu Dhabi to third party customers.
