Snapshot of all the courses offered by KFA
EASA/ FAA Private Pilot License requires training that covers all of the theoretical and practical knowledge to operate the airplane safely and authorizes the holder of the license to act as Pilot in Command of a civil aircraft. In other words, you are now cleared to be in charge of the airplane and can now pursue the Instrument Rating, Commercial Pilot Licenses and build hours to ATPL. At KFA you will train Airplane Single Engine Land (ASEL) and if requested on Aircraft Multi Engine Land (AMEL) . The ground course and simulator training will be held in Kuwait City, Kuwait and the flying course will be conducted in USA/ Europe.
EASA/ FAA Instrument Rating gives the holder of a Private or Commercial License the additional privilege of flying IFR (Instrument Flight Rules). An instrument rated pilot can fly solely by reference to the flight instruments in situations where navigation by line of sight is not possible. This means you can fly in the clouds as an instrument rated pilot, giving you a great deal more freedom to fly in conditions that would keep a non-instrument pilot on the ground.The ground course and simulator training will be held in Kuwait City, Kuwait and the flying course will be conducted in USA/ Europe.
The holder of a Multi-engine Class Rating may exercise the privileges of Pilot-in-command of multi-engine aircraft. The Multi-engine Class Rating is recommended for Commercial Pilot students since passenger transport is conducted primarily in multi-engine aircraft.
At Kuwait Flight Academy, multi-engine rating is provided for pilots with PPL, CPL and ATPL. The ground course and simulator training will be held in Kuwait City, Kuwait and the flying course will be conducted in USA/ Europe.
EASA/ FAA Commercial Pilot License allows the holder to fly for compensation or hire. In other words, you can seek employment and get paid to fly with a Commercial Pilot License. Both the aircraft multi-engine land (AMEL) and aircraft single engine land (ASEL) commercial pilot courses are offered at Kuwait Flight Academy. The ground course and simulator training will be held in Kuwait City, Kuwait and the flying course will be conducted in Europe/ USA.
Airline Transport Pilot Certificate (ATPL) is the highest of all licenses and the start of reaching the pinnacle of the profession. It allows the holder to act as Pilot in Command of an airline aircraft, meaning you can be the Captain with your ATP License. Both single engine and multi-engine ATP courses are offered at Kuwait Flight Academy. The ground course and simulator training will be held in Kuwait City, Kuwait and the flying course will be conducted in Europe/ USA.
Dispatchers share responsibility for the exercise of operational control, which gives them authority to divert, delay or cancel a flight. After the release of a flight, the dispatcher uses sophisticated software tools to monitor the flight's progress and advises the flight crew of any circumstances that might affect flight safety.
At KFA, the Flight Dispatcher / Flight Operations Officer training is aligned to the ICAO Document 7192 D3 Manual.
An FAA Flight Instructor License allows the holder to teach pilots how to fly. As an instructor you pass on what you have learned to others and gain valuable experience in the process. To become a flight instructor you must first have a Commercial Pilot License. The focus of instructor training is developing the ability to effectively teach others. Certified Flight Instructor courses for Airplane Single Engine Land (ASEL), Multi-Engine land (AMEL) and Instrument are offered. The ground course and simulator training will be held in Kuwait City, Kuwait and the flying course will be conducted in USA.
UAVs can be used for leisure, commercial and scientific research. They are in great demand in both logistics and film industry today.
