Charting a Course to Success for Oman Air

Case Study
Share On

As one of the Middle East's leading airlines, Oman Air has a sizable fleet of aircraft. In an effort to decrease costs and increase pilot productivity, Oman Air decided it had an opportunity to take control of its own pilot training. With the help and support of TRU Simulation + Training, the airline was able to establish its own self-sufficient training center. 

The beauty of TRU’s TrainOnSite program is how it allows airlines to establish a training center at their headquarters that’s completely customized. Instead of one-size-fits-all training, pilots enjoy a high-quality experience tailored to their airline. TRU provided two full flight simulator devices: 737NG and A330. The result was reduced downtime, streamlined logistics, and more money saved. This recognition has set Oman Air on a course for growth. By 2022, its fleet will increase to 70 aircraft. Oman Air has also signed a purchase agreement with TRU to take possession of a 737MAX training device in the future. With the ongoing support of TRU and the flexible TrainOnSite model, Oman Air is easily able to scale up its successful in-house training operations to support its continued growth.
