Thank you for your enquiry about pilot training with Qatar Aeronautical College. The Pilot Training Division of the college has been in existence since the early 1990’s, and over the years has steadily grown in line with the rapid expansion of the aviation industry in the region.

We have a modern fleet of 10 glass cockpit Piper Archer III aircraft here in Doha and a further 4 glass cockpit Piper Seneca V’s. On our flight line we have 18 dedicated and highly experienced flight instructors along with a further 18 full time ground instructors in our purpose built ground school building.

Our graduates fly for major carriers throughout the Middle East, and all over the world.

We are proud to have Qatar Airways as our prime customer, and many of our current cadets are either fully, or part sponsored by them. In the past we have also trained cadet pilots for Gulf Air and Oman Air.

We work very closely with them for their cabin crew and flight deck initial and re-current training for-

  • Aviation security
  • Dangerous goods
  • Human Performance and limitation
  • Aviation restraint training
  • Pedagogy (Train the trainer)

We offer a 22 month full time Diploma in Aviation Studies program leading to the issue of a QCAA commercial pilot’s license (CPL) with multi-engine instrument rating (IR). Upon gaining flight experience this license is then automatically eligible for upgrade to a QCAA Airline Transport Pilot’s License (ATPL)(A).

PTD’s flight training program is based on the UK CAA’s integrated course of training (JAA) and designed to take suitably capable cadets with no previous flight experience to the right hand seat (first office) of a commercial airliner in minimal time.
