DUBAI. U.A.E. 24th February 2015: The Centre of Aviation & Security Studies (CASS), the academic arm of Emirates Group Security and the Arab Air Carriers Organisation Regional Training Centre (AACO RTC), have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to extend two University Diploma programmes to the members of the Arab Air Carriers Organisation (AACO).
