Titan Airways launches new sponsored cadet programme

Titan Airways and VA Airline Training (VA) have announced the launch of a new sponsored cadet programme providing a highly progressive entry pathway for cadet pilots.

Whilst applications are sought from qualified EASA CPL/IR trained pilots irrespective of training path, the programme offers a rare opportunity for those pilots who have followed the modular route of training to benefit from a sponsored pathway; the entry point being post MECPL/IR.

The programme incorporates VA’s Airline Pilot Standards Multi Crew Co-operation course (APS MCC), the newly regulated Multi-pilot Advanced Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (MPA UPRT), and Type Rating training into one seamless programme – with Titan Airways covering the full cost of the programme.

Security will be provided by way of a four-year training bond which the First Officer will sign upon joining the airline as an employee.

Trainees will also be asked to lodge a training deposit with Titan Airways ahead of their training with VA which the airline will then repay over the pilot’s first 18-months of First Officer employment in addition to its salary.

“We are very excited to be able to offer this opportunity through VA. We have worked with them before and are extremely impressed by the calibre of VA graduates now working for us.” said Captain Matthew Wilson, pilot manager at Titan Airways.
