MEBAA aligns with Gulf Centre for Aviation Studies
The Middle East Business Aviation Association (MEBAA) has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Gulf Centre for Aviation Studies (GCAS).
Under the partnership, both parties will form a training committee, comprising one representative from each association, to identify and evaluate the needs of MEBAA's partners and members, and the trainings offered to them.
In addition, GCAS will have access to all MEBAA's events, trade shows, conferences, exhibitions and seminars to use as a platform to have its voice heard, and in return, MEBAA members will have a privileged rate to all GCAS courses.
The agreement was signed by and Ali Al Naqbi, chairman of MEBAA, and Mohammed Bulooki, general manager of GCAS.
"Our aim has always been to be a bridge, a communication channel, for all involved to better the business aviation industry. We strongly believe in the role that GCAS has been playing in the region and trust that this memorandum of understanding will bring us all closer to our goals, and will be beneficial to all those who work in this industry,” said Al Naqbi.
GCAS, a GCAA accredited centre, is the exclusive training provider for JAATO in the Gulf and Middle East region, and is the tenth certified training center to provide ACI courses.
"This partnership with MEBAA is another milestone for GCAS, as it will serve our goal in furthering the collective expertise and knowledge base in our industry and in our aim of providing training solutions for all key aviation organisations in the region,” stated Al Bulooki. “With this membership we will have access to a new base of governmental and aviation companies to further develop and expand our training programmes. We can extend our services beyond the region."
