Umm Al Quwain Aeroclub
Umm Al Quwain Aeroclub is the newest addition to the Aviation Fields in the United Arab Emirates. The Aeroclub is the brainchild of HH Brigadier Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Mualla, and was commissioned only two years ago.
The Aeroclub includes a runway with length of 1800 meters and 30 meters wide, taxiway, marking and lighting which have been completed under the supervision of General Civil Aviation Authority of the United Arab Emirates. The surface of the runway has a Load Classification Number that accepts a medium sized passenger jetliner, a moderate weight capacity.
A "CTAF," Common Traffic Advisory Frequency is operative at Umm Al Quwain Aeroclub and is listed in the relevant international documents used by aviators.
The Runway and Taxiway are equipped with lights and therefore available for night time operations as too.
"SKY DIVING" is its primary Activity and there is a team of dedicated Instructors who are available to handle any prospective student. The training courses are completed nearly always on time, this is mainly because of the excellent weather conditions that prevail throughout the year and because of the availability of a "SPECIAL MODIFIED" aircraft for this purpose, this facility is also open to members as well.
Sky Divers from the GCC and European Countries make the bulk of the overseas skydivers beside the large number if the UAE Nationals and Licensee’s.
Umm AL Quwain Aeroclub also has a club house, with comfortable lounges and catering facilities and the staff are highly motivated to look after the visitors.
