GCAS named ICAO’s Regional Training Centre of Excellence for the Middle East

The Gulf Centre for Aviation Studies (GCAS) has announced today that it has been selected as the Regional Training Centre of Excellence (RTCE) by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) for the Middle East region.

As such, GCAS will represent ICAO in the Middle East in four separate categories: Aerodromes, Air Transport, Flight Safety and Safety Management.

Commenting on receiving the award, H.E. Ali Majed Al Mansoori, Chairman of Abu Dhabi Airports, said:  “The selection of GCAS by ICAO to be its Regional Training Centre of Excellence for the Middle East marks a significant milestone and represents a quantum leap in the progress of this aviation training institution. This achievement for GCAS, coupled with being recognized as the World’s first ICAO TrainAir plus in 2011, demonstrates the important role Abu Dhabi Airports is playing in raising aviation standards around the world. 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.”

The ICAO ‘Regional Training Centre of Excellence (RTCE)’ certificate was formally presented to GCAS at a ceremony hosted at ICAO headquarters in Montreal on 10th September.
