Would appreciate if anyone can point me in the right direction on where an A320 full flight sim can be hired in the Middle East?
I have heard GAA in Bahrain have one but it's currently permanently used by Qatar Airways. Would anyone happen to know of any places within few hours flying time of DXB or in UAE?

CAE in Dubai have an A320 / ACJ FFS

Thanks mate, have already tried them but nothing at short notice. I'd be willing to fly a good few hours from Middle East if required.

Do you need it for an initial course, recurrent or just a block of time? There was a company in Dubai that had an arrangement with a ME airline for their A320 sim. I can ask around if you give me a few of the details. Also, does it have to be under any specific regulatory authority?

Jordan Airline Training Center in Amman, Jordan has a bunch of sims. A couple of friends of mine do their training there. They've never complained about the quality of the sims (and they complain about everything else -- so I assume they're okay...) :p

It's purely for recurrent training and practicing manual handling, landing techniques etc so regulatory approval etc is irrelevant. Thanks for the posts so far, if there are any others then please let me know.
Prince Sultan Aviation Academy in Jeddah has 2.
