Dubai Aviation City Corporation (DACC), the parent organization of Dubai South, has signed an agreement with the UK-based University of South Wales to set up an aviation academy.

The USW Aviation Academy will be the region’s first specialist campus facility offering advanced aerospace engineering education at Dubai South, a statement said.

Central to the agreement is the delivery of the build-to-suit campus facility by Dubai South to USW over a two-phase period, it added.

Scheduled to launch its first class in 2017, the academy will subsequently expand its facilities to include offices, classrooms, laboratories, workshops and aircraft hangar, as well as access to social and residential amenities at Dubai South.
