Cadet Airline Pilot Programs

The most secure option to complete your flight training is to apply for a pilot cadetship with an airline. Although the majority of cadet pilot mentored programs are self-funded, the training is completed after you have almost secured your first airline job. This greatly reduces the risk of spending more than £100,000 on flight training and never getting a job as a pilot. The danger is not entirely eliminated, since you must still meet the rigorous standards set by your airline throughout your flight training in order to keep your employment.


*** Many airlines have laid off existing pilots as a result of Covid-19. Some of those airlines have reached an agreement that those pilots who have been laid off will be rehired first, before anybody else. As a result, the majority of the cadet pilot programs mentioned below have been halted, and no date has been set for when they will reopen. ***
