For some, to dream of having a career in the skies, especially, to be a cadet pilot seems like a light years away. This requires not just skills but also a good financial capabilities because of all the requirements this course entails.
And to make this dream reachable, AirAsia Philippines launched their Cadet Pilot Program. This initiative aims to offer “study worry-free and without fees” to aspiring commercial pilots.
In partnership with AirAsia and Omni Aviation Corporation, this program will provide successful cadets “up to two years of technical and leadership training, with the aim of reaching the competencies required by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines,” AirAsia said through a press statement.
The airline company will cover the full training costs of their Allstars (staff) and will give subsidies for “non-employees who are accepted into the program.” Upon course completion, cadets can also file for reimbursement for the costs they’ve spent for their training.
“AirAsia has a proud history of having some of the best pilots in the Philippines. Through this program we will develop passionate Allstars and aspiring pilots, both men and women, into being the best. We’ve partnered with Omni Aviation, a leading Filipino training provider, to offer ten cadetships in the initial batches and the opportunity to embark on a new career with the World’s Best Low-Cost Airline,” said Dexter Commmendador, AirAsia Philippines president and CEO.
Applications for the Allstars Cadet Pilot Program, including the application schedule and qualification requirements will be announced soon.
