Captain Peter Mitchell has been appointed as Gulf Air’s new head of flight standards & training. Currently chief pilot at bmi, Mitchell will take up his new post in October.

During his 27 year career at bmi, Mitchell has flown a variety of aircraft types ranging from Vickers Viscounts to Airbus A330s, which he flies at present. He has also made a significant contribution to pilot management and training during this period.

Mitchell was also responsible for the establishment of London City Airways during a secondment period. The airline has a fleet of DHC-8 aircraft operating from London’s City airport in the renovated docklands area of east London. Mitchell also served as the airline’s operations director.

“Captain Mitchell has been involved in pilot training for 22 years with almost as many in management,” says Captain Hameed Ali, Gulf Air’s vice president operations. “We are delighted to have someone of this calibre and experience on board. I believe Gulf Air will benefit from his considerable experience in driving the new developments in the crew training arena and maintaining the highest standards of professionalism.”
