Emirates invests US$ 135 million in new pilot training center

"This US$ 135 million investment to build a new pilot training center will ensure Emirates' readiness to commence its pilot training ahead of the delivery of its new aircraft fleet starting from 2024. The building will be equipped with the latest, technologically advanced simulators to provide the best training for pilots, while using solar power to reduce energy consumption." ~His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive Emirates Airline and Group
Emirates invests US$ 135 million in new pilot training center

  • An advanced facility with Full Flight Simulator Bays (FFS) for Emirates’ new Airbus A350 and Boeing 777X fleet
  • When ready in 2024, new facility will have the potential to expand Emirates’ pilot training capacity by 54% annually

For its upcoming Airbus A350 and Boeing 777X aircraft, Emirates will soon construct an advanced training facility that can accommodate six Full Flight Simulator Bays (FFS). The new 63,318 square foot ft. facility will open in March 2024.

The existing Emirates Training Facilities in Dubai, which will be adjacent to the new building, will provide excellent integration and be conveniently located near all other pilot training centers.
As part of the pilot training module, pilot trainees will also be able to set up and configure the cockpit environment with specialized devices and upload the data to the Full Flight Simulator (FFS) prior to beginning their training session. This novel, first-of-its-kind idea aims to shorten the trainee's preparation time in the simulator, assist them in maintaining focus, and maximize the training time.
Emirates has the potential to increase its annual pilot training capacity by 54% by adding the new building to its existing Dubai training colleges. With 17 full flight simulator bays that can accommodate more than 130,000 training hours per year, Emirates' pilots will have more flexibility and facilities to improve their flying skills across the airline's training buildings.
Emirates' newest training college will begin instructing its first A350 pilots by June 2024, in accordance with the scheduled delivery of the airline's first Airbus A350 aircraft.
The airline provides a variety of world-class training and development programs for its workforce and other aviation professionals in addition to cutting-edge training facilities for its flight deck crew. These are found in Dubai: the Emirates Flight Training Academy for cadets, the Emirates Aviation University, the Emirates Cabin Crew Training Centre, and numerous programs designed specifically for various employee groups.
