5 reasons why you should make your pilot dreams a reality with CAE…
3 things you’ll love about the Generation easyJet course at CAE…
I have wanted to become a pilot since I was a child. Having spent nearly 7 years as an Air Cadet, I had the opportunity to fly in an aircraft which helped confirm that a career as a commercial airline pilot was exactly what I wanted!
I chose CAE because of their long-standing reputation, excellent airline placement rates, and strong testimonials from previous students. I made my decision after having attended a Pilot Career Day at CAE Oxford where I found the staff and instructors to be very approachable and encouraging, and I was very excited by the facilities and the details of the course. Through the selection process, the staff were also very supportive.
CAE Instructors and staff are very friendly and supportive, with lots of interesting and relevant stories from their own careers in aviation. I have been made to feel welcome and because of this I have gained confidence throughout the course. My fellow class mates are like-minded and make for lovely company. My favourite part so far has been the Foundation Flight training part of my course in Phoenix, and am looking forward to moving onto the instrument and simulator phases back in Oxford.
My plans for the future are to work with easyJet, and become a Captain. I would also enjoy training younger pilots once I have enough experience myself.
If you want to become a pilot, you do need to be passionate about flying highly motivated and hardworking. With determination and the support of your family and friends, you can achieve your dream!
