CAE Oxford Aviation Academy has signed a contract with Air Algérie to train 200 new cadets for the airline on an Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL) training programme over the next four years. The cadet training will be delivered in Oxford, UK and Phoenix, USA. The first course is scheduled to start in early 2015 with additional courses commencing at four to six month intervals thereafter.
“We are proud that Air Algérie has selected CAE Oxford Aviation Academy to deliver this comprehensive ATPL program to train its new cadets,” said Nick Leontidis, Group President, Civil Simulation and Training, CAE. “We look forward to working closely with Air Algérie over the next four years to train its future pilots to the highest quality standards.”
Cadets will be selected jointly by Air Algérie and CAE Oxford Aviation Academy’s assessment centre before they start the ATPL ground theory training phase in Oxford. After the ground school phase, the Air Algérie cadets will start their foundation flight training in Phoenix before returning to Oxford to complete the advanced Instrument Rating, Multi-Crew Co-Operation and Jet Orientation phases.
