Gulf Centre to add aviation law to its courses

Courses in aviation operations and management to benefit from move.


The Gulf Centre for Aviation Studies (GCAS), a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC), has introduced new combined courses that add relevant aviation law to the centre’s popular courses in aviation operations and management.

Aviation law elements will be included in airport aviation management, airport commercial management and air transport management courses with the aim of improving awareness of relevant regulatory frameworks and rules among professionals in the UAE and the region. The specialised programs are geared towards the needs of top and middle management of industry practitioners in both civilian and military sectors.

The first of these specialised courses were launched at the end of April and were attended by senior officials from the General Civil Aviation Authority, Royal Jet, Dubai Airports and ADAC.

Dr. Othman Al Khouri, deputy general manager of GCAS, said: “GCAS is focusing on delivering essential academic initiatives serving aviation and transportation sectors in the UAE and beyond. The introduction of combined aviation law courses is part of our continuous commitment towards developing a pool of local and regional aviation talents.”


GCAS has been certified recently as the World’s first “TRAINAIR PLUS” training centre by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and is the exclusive JAATO aviation training centre in the Middle East region. GCAS is also certified to deliver courses endorsed by Airport Council International (ACI) in the region.
