European Flight Training (EFT), an EASA flight training provider based in Florida, US, has become a division of the Aviator College of Science & Technology, also based in Florida.
According to a release from EFT, the move is designed to consolidate and strengthen both company’s positions in the global aviation training marketplace. The change coincides with the launch of a new JetWay Program, which is offering enrolment from July 2016. Full details can be found at www.flyeft.com.
EFT’s Director of Training explained the JetWay Program has been a very long time in the making and represents an exciting new opportunity for the next generation of airline pilots. “For the first time ever, a cost effective way of putting modular self-sponsored students straight into the right hand seat of a jet airliner is available without the need for a huge financial investment which can be very burdensome for years to come.”
As part of the programme, paid internships will be available to cover operations as a First Officer with a major US Regional Carrier, SkyWest Airlines. The programme will be open for enrolment for an initial period of six months. The company will be conducting a series of ‘Road Shows” to include London, Manchester, Dublin and Copenhagen in early October.
