Emirates selects Diamond Aircraft DA42-VI for flight training

Emirates Flight Training Academy (EFTA) is increasing its fleet.

EFTA has ordered three twin-engine training aircraft DA42-VI and its corresponding flight simulator from Diamond Aircraft. The AUSTRO jet-fuel-powered twin-engine 4-seater DA42-VI will be the flagship for multi-engine piston (MEP) training at Al Maktoum International-Dubai World Central Airport in support of the Emirates’ National Cadet Pilot Programme.

Capt Abdulla Al Hammadi, Vice President of Emirates Flight Training Academy, said: “Our new fleet from Diamond Aircraft is part of our larger strategic intent for our cadet programme. It helps us design a bridging MEP programme for cadets to gain more flying experience while progressing from a single-engine to a light jet aircraft. It strengthens our offering and makes it more unique, rounded, and robust. Our cadets will benefit hugely as they gain experience on three different types of aircraft, even before they’re licensed. The new fleet also helps us go above and beyond in complying with the new GCAA guidelines. The DA42-VI is reliable, eco-friendly, and a practical platform for MEP training. We’re confident we’ve made the right choice.”
