The CBTA Training includes IATA’s methodology and principles. Furthermore, Airbus’ 10 years of experience in training Airbus A350 pilots will play a crucial role.

This training programme uses a proven philosophy that helps pilots and instructors get immediate feedback. Following this, pilots can improve their performance.

The CBTA Training will be conducted in 2 phases and will be provided for 20 days in Simulator and 15 days will include other sessions.

Capt. Bader Al Marzooqi, Emirates’ Senior Vice President of flight Training, while acknowledging this partnership said,

With this programme, Emirates’ pilots receive in-house competency-based training with highly qualified instructors, equipping them with world-class capabilities to support the airline’s global operations. The tailored CBTA programme for the A350 supports the integration of the new aircraft to be inducted into our fleet, with 1,000 pilots set to complete the A350 type rating course. This latest initiative is part of Emirates’ commitment to deliver the highest standards of service and comfort while supporting our operational growth and expansion.”

Further, Emirates will inaugurate its first A350 service to Bahrain on the daily EK839/840 route starting September 15

Apart from this training, Emirates is also preparing other crucial department staff, which includes the Engineering team, Service Delivery personnel, Cabin Crew, Ground Staff, and others.

Nick Careen, IATA’s Senior Vice President for Operations, Safety, and Security said,

Combining the expertise of Emirates, Airbus and IATA to design and deliver A350 type rating training is a unique opportunity. Our joint aim is to fully utilize the benefits of CBTA to qualify the pilots on the A350 in the most efficient and effective way possible. And by doing it together all three organizations will also gain valuable experience that can strengthen their other training activities.”

CBTA and IATA Training Overview

The aviation industry has long sought the efficiency and effectiveness of Competency-Based Training and Assessment (CBTA).

IATA is at the forefront of this effort, providing airlines and training organizations with the tools they need to implement successful CBTA programs for flight crews.
