“This purchase agreement is one of the largest in history of aviation academies in Saudi Arabia and perhaps the Middle East region.

About SNCA-CAE Authorized Training Center

The SNCA-CAE Authorized Training Center was established to provide high quality training for young cadets and equipping them with the latest methodologies using latest equipment. Saudi Arabia, specifically, and The Middle East region, in general, is facing a significant shortfall in airline pilots both now and in the immediate future. The Academy aims at facing this shortfall by providing the Saudi and Gulf region with qualified pilots that, not only are highly qualified, but also meet the specific requirements for airlines in the region. The Center has already begun its operation in the Foundation Year program with an excess of 400 students; the first batch of young cadets is expected to complete the program and graduate in 2020.
