Welcome to Qatar Aeronautical College - Founded in 1975 as the Civil Aviation College of the Gulf States, QAC is now the Gulf region’s leading provider of training for the aviation industry.
We offer full-time, approved courses for Pilots, Aircraft Maintenance Engineers, Air Traffic Controllers, Meteorologists and Flight Dispatchers, as well as short courses in a wide variety of aviation-related disciplines.
The Pilot Training Division of Qatar Aeronautical College prepares students for a career as a commercial airline pilot. The instruction at the college is focused towards the ab-initio pilot who has no previous experience or knowledge of aviation.
When you enter the Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Training Department, you will start a Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer course conforming to Qatar Civil Aviation Regulations (QCAR) Part 66.
The Air Traffic Control (ATC) Course lasts approximately 18 months and leads to a Diploma in Air Traffic Control that is recognized by the International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAO).
The Flight Dispatcher Training Programme involves much the same Ground School syllabus as the Pilot Training Programme and lasts approximately six months. Sponsored trainees usually go on to complete another six months of on-the-job training with their airline.
