L3 Commercial Training Solutions (L3 CTS) has launched a new Jetstar Asia Airways Cadet Pilot Training Programme to develop high-calibre students into professional pilots for the airline.

The programme will support the resourcing demands for the Singapore-based airline and demonstrates its commitment to train a new generation of qualified pilots as it continues to grow its network in the region.

Mr Chan Choy Kee, Jetstar Asia’s Head of Flying Operations, said, “With the formalisation of the agreement with L3 CTS, we will be continually developing and training highly skilled pilots to augment our in-house talent pool.”

The first course is planned to start in mid-2018 when successful applicants will undertake a six-month ground school training in Singapore with Revion Ground School.

Following that, they will commence flight training on L3 CTS’s latest-generation aircraft and simulators at the purpose-built Training Centre in Hamilton, New Zealand. Upon successful completion, they will then proceed on to A320 type-rating with Jetstar Asia.

Applications to the program are open now and interested parties can find more information and apply at www.L3AirlineAcademy.com/Jetstar-Asia
