Qatar seeking new pilots

Qatar Airways has chosen CTC Aviation, a UK-based training company, to help it find enough pilots to support its expansion plans.
Qatar Airways currently operates 108 aircraft and has 787s, 777s, A350s, A380s and the A320s on order all requiring new pilots. The airline has called for a supply of graduate pilots from CTC Wings programme.

Chief executive Akbar Al Baker said: “As an airline growing at a tremendous rate and with orders for more than 250 aircraft due for delivery over the next few years, we will require a large number of pilots to join the organisation.
“CTC is a key partner for Qatar Airways to deliver the pool of professional pilots that we need to meet our operational requirements.”

Lee Woodward, director of business development for CTC Aviation said: “We are delighted to now be able to count Qatar Airways among our list of CTC Wings partner airlines. This is a great opportunity for our graduate pilots to forge a strong future career with an airline that maintains high standards of safety and customer service and in a region that is promising some significant growth in the coming years.

“This contract has been tailored to provide a mutually beneficial package for both the airline and the CTC Wings pilots. Qatar Airways has demonstrated its willingness to support its future cadet pilot intake and we are very pleased to have been chosen to work alongside another forward thinking airline, committed to investing in future pilot supply.”
