Flying in Dubai / UAE

Hi altogether!

I hope that somebody in this forum can help me. I will have a stay of 10 days in Dubai. During this stay I would like to fly there. Does somebody know where I can charter a single-engine-plane like PA28, DA40 or C172. It should be in Dubai or close to Dubai. Since I haven't received my EASA-CPL-license (with single-engine-rating) yet, I also would need an Flight-Instructor or Second Pilot flying this airplane.
I already searched in the internet without success :-(

I would appreciate any helpful hints

Best Regards from Germany, MeSa

On a related note, does anybody bring their own plane to the UAE if they are posted there for work? If so which airport can you keep a single engine piston plane (hangared)? UAQ for example?

Cheers

Keeping own plane in UAE

I see that the UAQ airport has been closed for a long time....what happened to the skydiving club based there? At least I managed to convert to a GCAA Licence while it was still operating!

Are there any expats keeping their own planes at Jazirah airport (OMRJ)?

There used to be a flying club at Ras Al Khaima - it may still be there

Hi phil
Yes it's still open I called in there yesterday they have a few LSA aircraft. And they say shortly to have gyros for SFH
Quite a busy little spot

Uaq is closed and derelict there is a old Russian passenger plane and a Russian antanov rusting away outside
