Leading Airline Cubu Pacific Opens Up For Cadet Pilot Applications
CEBU PACIFIC – Last Friday (May 17, 2019), the leading airline company Cebu Pacific just announced that they’re accepting applications for pilot cadets.
The low-cost airline Cebu Pacific also accepted applications for the “Study Now, Pay Later” Cadet Pilot Program recently for their 6th batch.
For aspiring pilots looking for opportunities to apply their knowledge, this could be a chance. Qualifications and processes were revealed.
16 cadets will be selected for the 7th batch of “Study Now, Pay Later” Cadet Pilot Program. There is no application fee required.
The 16 cadet pilots will undergo training in Australia’s Flight Training Adelaide or FTA school.
To apply for the spot:
Aspirants should participate in an online screening. After passing the online screening, the next steps would include
- computer aptitude tests,
- medical examinations
- psych evaluations
- English speaking skills
After passing these, successful applicants will now proceed to the actual site for another screening. Payment of a $425 AUS fee will be required for more skills and aptitude tests.
Qualifications for the spot were also announced. The qualifications read that applicants should be:
- a Filipino Citizen
- proficient in English
- a college graduate of any course/degree
- academically inclined with atleast 80% grade in physics, math and English related subjects
Another good news is that Cebu Pacific will provide for the initial training fees and also guaranteed employment for successful applicants. After being successfully hired, the total cost of the program will be reimbursed via deductions in the monthly salary for up to 10 years with no interest.
The program is looking forward to create a steady production of internationally-trained skilled airline pilots for the coming years.
A pioneer cadet in Cebu Pacific’s program from Iligan City, Darryl Dave Dituclan will return to the country this June from Flight Training Adelaide school and will be employed as First Officer in the company.
This is according to an article from Rappler.
Darryl, also coming from an average-income generating family, took the chance and recommended the program in his statement:
“To those wanting to be pilots but are financially or otherwise constrained, take advantage of this opportunity offered by Cebu Pacific.”
The program was launched 2 years ago (2017) and has successfully sent 80 cadets to be trained aborad from 38,000 aspiring applicants.
That is all there is to it, at least for now. We’ll post updates as soon as we got them.
