CAE and easyJet announced the re-opening of the Generation easyJet Pilot Training Programme to recruit aspiring pilots over the next six months. Recruitment is open to cadets from all European countries to support easyJet’s growing bases in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain.
While maintaining the option to follow ground school classes in Oxford, UK, CAE will open, for the first time, Generation easyJet ground school classes in its Brussels, Belgium and Madrid, Spain aviation academy locations. Flight training phases will continue to be served from Phoenix (Arizona), USA and Oxford, UK.
Selected cadets will follow one of two training routes: either Multi-Crew Pilot License (MPL) or Integrated Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL). Upon completion of training, the next generation of pilots will join operations as easyJet co-pilots.
“We are delighted to open our Generation easyJet Pilot Training Programme once again. easyJet values diversity and having a workforce that reflects our customer base, so we look forward to welcoming the next generation of aspiring pilots from across Europe to apply and pursue this rewarding career,” said David Morgan, Director of Flight Operations for easyJet.
“At easyJet, we pride ourselves in having a team of the highest talent. We offer our pilots a clear career path with the opportunity to develop from First Officer to Captain quicker than at other airlines. This is an exciting time to join easyJet as we continue to grow and develop to maintain our position as Europe’s leading airline.”
“We are proud to play a critical part in easyJet’s growth strategy by providing its next generation of pilots,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. “By leveraging our extensive training network in Europe, we are able to offer the Generation easyJet Pilot Training Programme to a much larger pool of candidates across the continent.”
