Question getting a PPL in Dubai/UAE

hi guys!

firts post, ever.. anywhere.

so, ive done 8 hours to a PPL (just got feet wet) and loved it. This was with Cabair uxbridge/denham (sad its gone) and now my job is making me relocate to Dubai.

Im thinking great weather etc, but can I get a PPL there? Where? How much will it set me back realistically? More than 10k GBP?

I saw Emirates Aviation Services website, but nobody answers a phone! Ever. I really need one on one lessons, is this possible anywhere? I will be doing a 9-5 so i need flexible hours and weekends basically.

any help and encouragement would be vastly appreciated!

Hi there - private flying is pretty scarce out there - there used to be a flight school at Ras Al Khaimah, which is just up along the coast - I would probably start looking around there.

Over on the east coast, try this if you don't mind driving from Dubai, accommodation is also cheaper.

Grrr reply

Paco & TCAS,

thanks for that info! really appreciate it...

Is there any rating system for the various schools?

sounds to me like theres only one 'don' per area for owning/operating schools out there..
