CTC Aviation re-opens fully sponsored Advanced Flight Instructor programme


CTC Aviation has announced that it has re-opened applications for its fully sponsored Advanced Flight Instructor Programme.

Successful applicants will be sponsored by CTC Aviation to become multi-engine Instrument Rating and Class Rating Instructors (IRI and CRI), receiving a salary from the beginning of training. Successful trainees will join CTC Aviation’s team of highly qualified instructors responsible for delivering flight training for the company’s world renowned CTC WINGS airline pilot career programmes as well as CTC Aviation’s flexible professional pilot training programme, CTC TAKEOFF.

CTC Aviation’s Chief Operating Officer – Ab initio Training (Europe), Martin Hunt said, “Our programme has been really successful over the years. The first course of instructors have just joined easyJet as co-pilots after having had an enjoyable time as part of the instructor team in Bournemouth. We were sad to see them go, but that is part of the attraction of the programme and enables us to invite even more instructors to benefit from the programme. ” 

The programme involves three years as an employed Flight Instructor at CTC Aviation’s Crew Training Centre in Bournemouth. A visit to CTC Aviation’s Crew Training Centre in Hamilton, New Zealand is planned as part of the instructor’s development and successful applicants will benefit from attending CTC Aviation’s airline standard Type Rating Instructor Core course and the company’s industry leading Airline Qualification Course (which incorporates the Multi crew Co-operation Certificate – MCC) in the process.

At the end of the three-year period, instructors may choose to continue working for CTC Aviation as part of the company’s dedicated instructor team with potential relocation opportunities to CTC Aviation’s Crew Training Centres in New Zealand or the United States.  Alternatively, for those with aspirations to join the airlines, CTC Aviation’s Airline Placement Team will aim to facilitate employment as a co-pilot with one of the company’s Airline Partners.
