Practical, applied learning

GCAS is one of the few aviation training centres in the world located in an operational airport, providing students with a unique on-the-job learning experience.

Our knowledge and understanding of the Middle East - a region leading the world in airport infrastructure, airline development and air traffic growth – is especially advantageous.

Abiding by international best practice

We have developed partnerships and working relationships with leading international providers of aviation training such as Airport Council International (ACI),  the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and  the Joint Aviation Authorities of Europe Training Organization (JAATO) apart from being the world’s first International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) TRAINAIR PLUS centre. These partnerships ensure that industry best practice is delivered to the region’s aviation professionals. At GCAS, we make it our business to further the collective skills and knowledge base in the aviation industry as a whole.
