CityJet, the Irish European Regional airline, has announced that it is to recruit an additional ten trainee pilots for entry into its ‘Climb High’ mentored pilot training programme managed by CAE Oxford Aviation Academy.
“CityJet continues to see significant expansion with further Bombardier CRJ-900 passenger aircraft arriving both this year and into next and additional Superjet SSJ100 to our existing fleet,” said CityJet’s General Manager of Flight Operations, Robert Campbell Smith.
“Our fleet of Avro RJ85 aircraft continues to serve us well and with all three aircraft types providing opportunities throughout our nine European pilot bases, this is an exciting time to be joining our growing airline. We look forward to welcoming our new recruits to our Cadet programme later this year.”
Selected cadets will complete an Integrated ATPL Training Course at CAE Oxford Aviation academies in Oxford, UK and Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
