Emirates Flight Training Academy
Hi all,
After searching the wannabe forums i cannot find anything on the matter so i'll drop it here.
Is anyone else looking into the emirates flight training scheme from outside of the UAE or has anyone got anymore information on it as their website doesn't host a whole lot.
I have registered my interest with themselves but am still waiting for a reply with further information as they like to put it.

I would link the website as you can't find it through the emirates website itself but it's
emiratesflighttrainingacademy . com
for anyone wondering.

I too would be interested in any more information about them such as:
- The Cost of the program?
- Availability to Foreign nationals (UK/USA)?
- Potential Employment after?

There was a thread run on this a while back, maybe the search function will help.

There is 0 chance of any employment with the airline the name is associated with and therefore in my eyes little point to spend so much cash for an overpriced course with nearly no help in finding any employment.

ATPLs are not difficult and can be done alone, you don't need to spend the earth to be taught the stuff in a far-flung land for no extra benefits job wise.

So they talk up everything and the two most critical factors - how much?, and will I be offered a job afterwards? aren't answered.

Starting training in a Cirrus and then onto a twin jet?!? That's a long way from banging around in a C150 for the first couple of hundred hours. If I had to guess, this is business diversification for Emirates - its a money making enterprise and probably has no relationship with the parent airline and no intention of flow through cadets.

Still, if you have billionaire mummies and daddies, it would be a pretty good experience.

I did, it was an email containing a further questionnaire containing standard questions such as if Im willing to pay 186 or so thousands of pounds and medical info. Didn't fill it and so no further information.

The whole thing lacks class in my opinion.
