Sultan Al Mansoori, Acting General Manager GCAS, said: “This training session, held at our Regional Centre of Excellence, is an important step in bolstering our aviation ties with our peers in Saudi Arabia. The selection of GCAS as the training provider for the Royal Saudi Air Force demonstrates its position as a leading regional aviation training institution, and Abu Dhabi’s status as a prime hub for Aviation, confirming its key roles in the region’s sustainable economic development.”
