Adac in aviation training centre deal.

Byline: Virginia

Abu Dhabi Airports Company (Adac) has signed an MoU with two top US associations towards enhancing aviation and training services, including setting up a training centre in Abu Dhabi, for airport officials in region.

The memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE)/International Association of Airport Executives (IAAE) calls for Adac's Gulf Centre for Aviation Studies (GCAS) to be the region's exclusive learning center for AAAE/IAAE training programmes, including the accredited airport executive (AAE) programme.

AAAE and ADAC also plan to work together on other initiatives, including aviation business development, conferences, training and research that will benefit the rapidly developing Middle East and Gulf regions.

"ADAC is a dynamic organization that is continuously developing and expanding its activities," said Khalifa Mohamed Al Mazrouei, chairman of Adac.

"Our policy has been to establish partnerships with the best-regarded aviation- and aerospace-related companies worldwide, as we endeavour to support the growth of Abu Dhabi's economy and achieve excellence by raising the bar for airports everywhere," he added.

'IAAE's goal is to help expand AAAE's reach to the global aviation industry and foster collaboration and information exchange between airport executives worldwide,' said IAAE Chair Bonnie Allin, AAE, and president/CEO of the Tucson Airport Authority.

'We look forward to creating a lasting, mutually beneficial relationship with Adac.'

Adac operates five airports in the Emirate and is developing the Abu Dhabi Airport Logistics Park, which sits adjacent to Abu Dhabi International Airport, the primary entry point into the Emirate and growing civil aviation hub, and will provide a range of facilities for aviation-related businesses.

AAAE is the world's largest provider of interactive airport training and has spent years developing and refining various delivery methods for both federally mandated and value-added training.

Hundreds of US airports rely on AAAE's computer-based, Web-based and instructor-led training to meet federal requirements and conduct advanced training. -- TradeArabia News Service
