CTC Aviation has announced a new programme which it says will allow qualified pilots ‘fast track’ placement into its partner airlines.
The Airline Training Partnership (CTC ATP) is aiming to attract more qualified pilots to its managed training plan, following what CTC Aviation says is a ‘dramatic increase in demand for both newly-qualified and experienced pilots’ from its airline partners, including BA CityFlyer, easyJet, Flybe, Monarch and Thomas Cook Airlines.
The ATO’s release explained that each pilot will be charged for a bespoke training programme designed to meet their individual needs; based on training history, experience and recency. All routes will include some practical Multi-Crew training, Crew Resource Management (CRM) and advanced jet handling skills training.
CTC Aviation says the route will ensure those holding the necessary qualifications and operational experience are able to access airline placement opportunities – without repeating elements of previous training or qualifications.
The programme also includes CTC ATP ‘Performance Protection’, which means that, should pilots not achieve the required standard for airline placement, CTC Aviation will refund 30% of their training fee (subject to terms and conditions). All training will be delivered from CTC Aviation’s Boeing and Airbus Crew Training Centre in Southampton (UK).
Applicants are required to complete an online application form and attend a selection day with CTC Aviation. Successful candidates will be offered a bespoke training plan, designed to ensure that they meet the standard required by the airlines.
For a limited time, the ATO is offering Free CTC ATP Selection. All applicants to CTC ATP are required to completed CTC Aviation’s selection process. Normally costing £295, the company is offering free selection for applicants who apply and complete selection before 1 July 2016. CTC Aviation will be hosting a careers event for licensed pilots to learn more about CTC ATP and airline placement opportunities on Saturday 28 May at its Crew Training Centre – Southampton (UK).
Lee Woodward, CTC Aviation’s Chief Operating Officer – Airline Resourcing predicts that the future looks even brighter: “We train in the region of 500 pilots a year through ab initio programmes such as CTC WINGS and CTC TAKEOFF, but from what our airline customers are telling us, this figure will not satisfy their demand. We aim to further increase our own ab initio intake, but we also need more newly qualified pilots right now!”
