Cadet profile

  • What made you want to become a Pilot?

    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!

  • What was your journey in deciding to apply for the easyJet scheme and why did they choose CAE?

    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 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.

  • What the course has been like? – support – opportunities – challenges – surprises – best-bits

    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.

  • Plans for the future, how do you see your career developing?

    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.

  • Advice to people currently looking at routes to becoming a Pilot?

    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!
