Monarch commits to employing CTC Aviation graduates

Monarch_a321-200_g-ozbu_takeoff_from_manchester_arpMonarch Airlines has offered permanent First Officer positions to graduates of CTC Aviation.

For its latest intake, the airline has committed to employ graduates of both the CTC Wings ATPL Integrated “whitetail” Route, as well the CTC Takeoff professional pilot training course and the CTC Flexicrew ATP Programme. Pilots who complete their airline pilot training through CTC Aviation’s CTC Wings Integrated ATPL Route are put forward for airline placement by CTC Aviation’s graduate placement team towards the end of their training.


The newly appointed Monarch Airlines pilots will secure a permanent First Officer position within the airline. The future co-pilots will begin type rating training at CTC Aviation in October and will be ready for operational flying on the airline’s Airbus A320 out of one of Monarch’s six UK bases by January 2016.

Ken Gillespie, Head of Pilot Training for Monarch Airlines commented, “We have been working with CTC Aviation for over 20 years and during that time they have supplied us with hundreds of quality pilots.  Our future growth plan suggests that we will have a continued requirement for newly qualified pilots, so we are confident that there will be even more opportunities on offer in the near future.”
