Two trainer planes arrive at Oman Aviation Academy

May 30, 2021

Oman Aviation Academy, currently being developed at Suhar Airport, has taken delivery of its first two training aircraft — part of a fleet that will help position the Sultanate’s first aviation academy as a leading provider of world-class pilot training for the civil and military aviation sectors in the wider Middle East region.

Oman Airports, which operates Suhar Airport, said the two planes were accorded a traditional water salute upon their arrival in Suhar on Friday.

Oman Aviation Academy was established in February 2018 as a partnership involving, among others, the Ministry of Defence Pension Fund, Oman National Investments Development Company (TANMIA) and Al Hosn Investment Company, among other government agencies.

Also playing a key role as an offset partner is Airbus Helicopters, while CAE, a global aviation training organisation, is a strategic partner in the establishment of the campus and its curriculum.

This partnership was assembled and delivered through the Tawazun (Offset) programme.

Plans drawn up by the Academy envision a campus designed to “meet and exceed international standards” for aviation training services providers. Featuring a total built up area of 35,000 sqm, the facility has a capacity to accommodate around 150 students per annum and will be equipped with state-of-the art training systems, including four flight simulators. An 80-feet high Air Traffic Control (ATC) will be integrated with the main building.
