Riyadh: The Riyadh-based Infinity Support Services and Flight Safety International Company has signed an agreement for the construction of an Aviation Academy at a cost of SR1 billion. Obaid Al-Mozainy, CEO of Infinity Support Services, signed the accord on behalf of his company. Khalid Al-Khaibary, official spokesperson of the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA), told Arab News that the academy would be run by the private sector. GACA has given official approval for this academy, which would benefit a large number of Saudi and Arab youths who are interested in joining the aviation industry. The institute, which will specialize in the field of aviation, will be built on an area of 50,000 square meters. Al-Mozainy said that the region would need 20,000 pilots during the next 10 years, based on recent studies conducted in the Middle East. He added that the academy is the only one of its kind in the Saudi Kingdom, which would offer a high-tech blend of the latest aircraft and simulation tools to ensure that the students and navigators get the best training.
