The Gulf Centre for Aviation Studies (GCAS), an arm of ADAC created in 2009, and Dubai-based Avtech Middle East, a subsidiary of Avtech Sweden, have partnered to offer training in areas such as performance-based operations, collaborative decision making, airborne CNS/ATM (Communications, Navigation and Surveillance for Air Traffic Management), auditing and human factors. The organizations said in a joint press release, “These courses stand out as they are linked to real-life operational requirements and best practice and are delivered by highly experienced subject matter experts.”
These courses are being offered at the GCAS facilities in Abu Dhabi. Dr. Othman Al Khoori, general manager GCAS and vice president, HR and administration, ADAC, said that the focus is to bring the “very best” aviation courses to the Middle East, and that partnering with strategic partners such as Avtech helped to bring this about.
Lars Lindberg, CEO of Avtech Middle East, said that the focus of the company is to offer “sustainable solutions within performance-based operations.” Avtech Sweden said, “By using Avtech’s products and services, each individual flight as well as the entire airline operation can be optimized in terms of cost, noise and emission, efficiency, punctuality and safety.” The company has another subsidiary based in Toulouse, France.
