The GAL ANS Training Centre in Al Ain is the first Training Centre to gain UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) accreditation as an ATS Training Organization. We have graduated more than 2900 students in different disciplines of Air Traffic Services since opening. The Training Centre has also achieved the status of an ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) Regional Training Centre of Excellence for ANS training.
Our courses reflect a flexible and practical approach to training and utilize state-of-the-art equipment and techniques. Training can be tailored to suite a client’s particular needs in terms of both content and duration.
In addition to core air traffic service disciplines, the Training Centre provides courses developed specifically for individual Aviation and Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs). All training packages are kept up to date with the latest concepts and advances within the industry, and can be modified with location-specific context. Training courses can be delivered in Al Ain at the Training Centre or at the client’s premises.
ATC Tower simulation is carried out in a dedicated facility comprising one 360 degree and two 225 degree Tower simulators. ATC Radar simulation is provided on multiple 2-position hi-fi radar simulators.
