Posted 10 February 2015 · Add Comment

Ethiopian Airlines has returned to EgyptAir Training Center after a break of more than a year.

The East African carrier has signed a contract for three months for providing type rating training for Boeing 777 pilots, but expectation is that the two sides will agree a one year deal.
Meantime, the Cairo-based academy has received approvals by EASA for its simulator training on A320, A330/ A340, B777 and B737-800.
The approval as an EASA-rated ATO will enable EgyptAir to compete against European schools and the Center said it becomes one of the few schools in the Middle East and Africa that can meet the EASA requirement.
