Jet Airways in collaboration with CAE, a world leader in training for commercial airlines, has launched a new Commercial Pilot License (CPL) cadet pilot training programme aimed at creating more than 380 professional pilots over the next five years.
As part of the agreement, the first set of 60 cadets will begin training in the second half of 2017, with ground school and flight training at CAE's flight academies in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, and Gondia (NFTI), India. Thereafter, cadets will continue with Boeing 737 type-rating training at CAE's training centre in Bengaluru, India. Upon successful completion of their training programme, the selected candidates will be employed by Jet Airways.
Jet Airways is India’s premier international airline, which operates flights to India and overseas. The company’s robust domestic India network spans the length and breadth of the country covering metro cities, state capitals and emerging destinations.
