In 2011, British Airways selected Airline Placement Limited (APL), a wholly owned subsidiary of CTC Aviation Group Limited, to sponsor all cadets for its flagship British Airways Future Pilot Programme (FPP) and manage the programme on their behalf. British Airways also nominated CTC Aviation, with flight schools in both the United Kingdom and New Zealand, to train some of the airline’s FPP cadets.
British Airways selected 95 FPP cadets who commenced training during 2012, with a further 72 being selected in 2013. The first FPP cadets from CTC are nearing the completion of their CPLIR or basic phase of training and will soon commence type rating training on Airbus A320 fleets.
Mr Lindsay Craig, (Manager Pilot Recruitment) for British Airways will speak twice during the course of CTC’s November careers event and, together with FPP cadets in training and operational British Airways pilots; he will be on hand to answer questions throughout the day. With the first two intakes of FPP cadets now well into their 18-month training programme and the third application window potentially opening later this year, the careers event offers a great opportunity to learn more about British Airways, the airline’s long-standing relationship with CTC Aviation, the Future Pilot Programme and what it’s like to train and work with one of the world’s leading airlines.
Karen Bath, Head of Corporate Communications for CTC Aviation said “Since we began hosting these events a senior British Airways manager has spoken on no less than 4 occasions and we are delighted that they have also agreed to support our autumn 2013 careers event. Lindsay’s presentation will no doubt be very popular and we recommend people register as soon as possible to ensure their place.”
