GGIFA Flying School Doing Well

GGIFA (Gulf Golden International Flying Academy) International College of Aviation, one of the country’s latest commercial flying schools, recently completed the building works of its hangar, and has added 13 more to its collection of training aircrafts.

The new hangar’s opening was officiated by the Sarawak Chief Minister, Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud.

Located in Bintulu, Sarawak, GGIFA commenced its operation in mid 2007, enrolling SPM leavers and above as its first batch of pilot trainees. GGIFA’s first intake only involved 12 students.

Today, more than 100 cadet pilots are pursuing their training in the school with the aim of graduating as commercial pilots. In the near future, between 400 and 500 cadets are expected to enroll for various training courses and certifications provided.

It won’t finish there as the management plan to convert the institution into a full fledge aviation university college which will offer diploma and degree courses in aviation related field such as aircraft engineering, avionics, maintenance engineering and airline management.

The strategic location of GGIFA flying school, which is far away from busy air space, allows the school to provide its students with almost unrestricted flying space, spanning more than 400 nautical miles of flying training distance.
