Cadet Programs

With the Pilot Shortage in full force, many airlines have set up, or are in the process, of setting up Cadet Pilot Schemes. Every airline is different – some use Internal Cadet Pilot Training Schemes while others contract it out to specific Training Schools.

In addition, many airlines commence their Cadet Training at the 'ab-initio' stage – meaning taking students with zero flight hours and training them over a number of years into their operation. Others require a candidate have logged a minimum number of hours and specific ratings prior to entering their Cadet Training Scheme.

Below you will find current Cadet Pilot Job Listings as well as a list of airlines in each region that use Cadet Pilot Schemes. Intakes are usually only a few times per year. Also, understand that airlines want to employ their own nationals. Thus most Cadet Schemes are restricted to their own nationals. TIP – search below for Cadet Programs in your own region:
