Calling OFW families: Search is on for new batch of Cebu Pacific Cadet Pilots on a “study now, pay later, zero-interest” training

Many OFWs have dreamed of becoming a pilot or are now dreaming of having their children becoming a pilot. The job commands good package which includes a range of family benefits and travel perks.

Wait no more.

Leading Philippine carrier Cebu Pacific (CEB) is searching for a new batch of 16 recruits to enter its cadet pilot program. The Cebu Pacific Cadet Pilot Program is a “study now, pay later, zero-interest” training program to become full-fledged commercial pilots with guaranteed employment with the airline.

The program is open to all Filipino citizens who are college graduates, proficient in English and in good physical condition. There are no preferred college degrees, and applicants need only have an average grade of at least 80% or its equivalent in subjects related to Math, Physics and English.

The program entails 52 weeks of integrated flight training, theory and education at Flight Training Adelaide (FTA) in Adelaide, Australia—one of the best aviation schools in the region. They will also undergo an additional four weeks of training to obtain a Pilot’s License under the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines.

Seventy-four cadet-pilots are currently undergoing training at FTA. CEB’s first batch of Cadet Pilots is wrapping-up licensing and is expected to assume First Officer duties by the fourth quarter of 2019. A second batch of Cadet Pilots will be graduating from FTA next month.

CEB cadet-pilots need not worry about expenses related to the flight training, as the airline will shoulder the costs first, including a stipend, and amortize the payment for the course while they are employed. The entire program will be financed by Cebu Pacific, and successful cadet-pilots who enter the CEB corps of pilots will reimburse the cost of the program through salary deduction over a maximum of 10 years.

Application period for the eighth batch of Cebu Pacific Cadet Pilots will run from August 9 to 18, 2019. Interested applicants may apply for the program through https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/6ZSZDBK
