Irish European Regional airline CityJet will today formally launched its “Climb High” Mentored Cadet Programme.
The Cadet programme opens for applicants today and will commence recruitment for the first 10 trainee pilots in June.
The 10 cadets will be employed by CityJet upon successful completion of their training across the CityJet network, with current crew bases in Dublin, London City Airport, Paris, Stockholm and Helsinki and, later this year, Amsterdam.
CityJet’s director of operations Robert Tatten said: “The launch of our new cadet programme will provide the start of an exciting career path for the successful applicants.
“CityJet has undergone significant growth in recent months, with, in addition to our Avro RJ85 fleet, eight Bombardier CRJ900s joining our new Nordic network and the arrival this summer of our new Superjet SSJ100s.
“This is definitely a great time to join CityJet and we look forward to welcoming our new recruits to our Cadet Programme later this year.”
CityJet is to partner with CAE Oxford Aviation Academy to provide the initial training.
The training will take place in Oxford and Phoenix, Arizona (USA).
