EAS expands fleet with 4 new aircraft
Dubai, August 1, 2013
Emirates Aviation Services (EAS), a flying school approved by the UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) in Dubai, has expanded its fleet strength by acquiring the Cessna 172.
The rugged and safe flight training aircraft has been included in the fleet after being flown from Riyadh.
The company will also take delivery of another brand new C172 airplane, with two more new aircraft expected before the end of the year.
The brand new Cessna 172S Nav III is equipped with a modern ‘glass-cockpit’ and advanced avionics, said a statement.
A key feature of EAS’s C172 is the terrain awareness warning system (TAWS). By using precise GPS and terrain data, this system can show the pilot what lies around the aircraft in-flight, even when the pilot is blinded by bad weather conditions like fog or sandstorms.
Operating from Terminal 2 of Dubai International Airport, the school operates US-built Piper Warrior single-engine aircraft and a Piper Seminole multi-engine aircraft. By inducting the new Cessna 172, the company has reinforced itself as a leader in flight training in the Gulf region.
Emirates Aviation Services operates from Terminal 2 of Dubai International Airport and is also set to open a brand new pilot training facility at Dubai World Central Al Maktoum Airport in Jebel Ali.
The school is also an Approved Maintenance Organisation, with an in-house maintenance team. - TradeArabia News Service
