The DSO facility is the second training center under Emirates-CAE Flight Training (ECFT) operation. Construction was completed in April, and on Monday both companies hosted pilots and government officials from around the world to inaugurate the new facility.
ECFT’s 55,000-square-foot facility will initially include five full flight simulator-training bays for Airbus and Boeing aircraft flight training.
