Gulf Air | New Bahraini Pilots Graduate to Fly
MANAMA: Gulf Air, Bahrain’s national carrier, said that a new batch of pilots recently took to the skies with the airline as they completed ground and base training courses.
A group of four pilots are now operating as second officers to complete a set of flying hours and earn their next stripe to be first officers, an airline statement said.
This is part of the cooperation between Gulf Air and Bahrain’s labour fund Tamkeen which is tailored to the airline’s requirements to bring a value-added, unmatched training experience to Gulf Air’s aviation professionals.
Gulf Air and Tamkeen signed the joint agreement in May 2018 aimed at enhancing opportunities for the training and employment of Bahrainis within the Kingdom’s aviation sector.
