Norse Atlantic Airways launches Cadet Programme with OSM Aviation Academy

New Norwegian airline Norse Atlantic Airways and OSM Aviation Academy are collaborating to launch a cadet pilot programme.

Norse will begin flying in the second quarter of 2022 and plans to offer affordable flights between Europe and North America with a fleet of 15 Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. Once the airline is fully operational, the new cadet programme will kick off with OSM Aviation Academy. 

The budding airline is linked closely with OSM – Norse CEO Bjørn Tore Larsen owns nearly three-quarters of OSM Aviation Academy.

Chief Culture Officer Kristin Berthelsen at Norse said, “Initiating a career path and mentorship programme for our pilots as early as their initial stages of education and training aligns with our values of inclusiveness, ownership and kindness. We believe that taking ownership and including our future colleagues at an early stage will be a key effort in securing the talent of tomorrow.” 

Hans Kyrre Hultgren, Managing Director at OSM Aviation Academy, added, “We see our students as future colleagues, ensuring that they have the best career options after graduation. This partnership will motivate them even further to study diligently and work hard to pursue these opportunities and make a future for themselves.”
