A new batch of Bahraini pilots recently took to the skies with Bahrain’s national carrier as they completed ground and base training courses.
A group of eight pilots are now operating as Second Officers to complete a set of flying hours and earn their next stripe to become First Officers in the future.
Gulf Air’s training programme is tailored to bring a value-added training experience to Gulf Air’s Bahraini aviation professionals. Aimed at enhancing opportunities for the training and employment of Bahrainis within the kingdom’s aviation sector, Gulf Air’s training programme is continuing to establish a solid base of Bahraini pilots that will help the airline achieve its strategic expansion.
Gulf Air is committed to investing in its Bahraini workforce and their career development and as such, it continues to provide opportunities for Bahraini nationals to take over senior positions in the company. The airline has established a tailored programme in which it recruits and trains Bahrainis to become aviation professionals and continue Bahrain’s legacy of being a longstanding reliable source of aviation industry professionals who have served the national carrier and other regional airlines. - TradeArabia News Service
