Airbus pilot training
The ab initio Pilot Cadet Training Programme, co-developed by Airbus and France’s ENAC civil aviation university, will start in Mexico and then be rolled out worldwide.


Airbus and the French Civil Aviation University, ENAC, have obtained EASA certification for a pilot cadet training programme due to be rolled out to a worldwide network of partner flight schools, starting with Escuela de Aviacion Mexico (EAM) in Mexico city early 2019.

The Airbus Pilot Cadet Training Programme aims to equip cadets with the skills and mind-set required to become an “operationally-ready pilot” focusing on the all-important development of key pilot technical and behavioural competencies.

The programme will be open to young people over 18 years old who have graduated from high school. Candidates will undergo online and on-site screening tests before being eligible for training, which will include 750 hours of ground school, plus 200 hours of flight training.
