[Avionics Today 09-10-2014] The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has selected the Gulf Centre for Aviation Studies (GCAS) to be the Regional Training Centre of Excellence (RTCE) for the Middle East region. As such, the Abu Dhabi-based GCAS will represent ICAO in the Middle East in four separate categories: aerodromes, air transport, flight safety and safety management. GCAS is the exclusive JAATO aviation training center in the Middle East region.

“I am confident that this new accolade will attract an increasing number of candidates to develop their careers in aviation, where they will receive training of the highest standards as well as acquire skills and knowledge that have not been available before in the region," said H.E. Ali Majed Al Mansoori, chairman of Abu Dhabi Airports.
