Military Flight Training Middle East
Developing effective flight training programmes and simulation systems to meet current and future operational requirements

10 December, 2012 - 12 December, 2012, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

With the increasing complexity of military aircraft technology and capabilities there is a growing need for investment in pilot training and procurement of simulation equipment. Preparation and development of training courses combined with adoption of world-class technology has seen training and simulation become a priority for Armed Forces globally.

In the Middle East the rate of procurement and adoption of fast, rotary, multi-engine aircrafts has led to a heavy requirement on training in order to close the flight training gap. Armed Forces are planning to invest heavily in order to ensure operational ability matches aggressive fleet expansion plans.

At Military Flight Training Middle East we will explore best practice, latest technologies, operational requirements, training doctrine and policy as well as showcasing solutions for the challenges that Armed forces face today.

Benefits of attending:

  • Network with flight training programme managers to discover regional training requirements
  • Learn about current best practice from leading air force training academies
  • Examine ways of closing the flight training gap and how to deliver the best and most cost effective training for your pilots
  • Hear about simulation technologies for both rotary and fixed wing aircrafts
  • Explore synthetic and operational flight training and examine the cost benefits of each
  • Learn about the latest technologies available and which is the best fit for your flight training programme
