CTC Aviation Training opens doors for New Zealand’s future airline pilots
Hamilton, New Zealand - CTC Aviation Training (NZ) Limited, a global leader in airline pilot training, will again open the doors of its state-of-the-art crew training centre in Hamilton on Saturday 16 March. Aspiring airline pilots will have the opportunity to tour the extensive training facilities, view the company’s aircraft fleet up-close, speak with cadets and flight instructors, and hear about employment opportunities with CTC’s partner airlines.
Training Captain and Manager of Flying Operations, Captain Richard Faulkner, from CTC’s partner airline Jetstar, will be speaking to guests at the Open Day about the airline’s Cadet Pilot Programme and the role of an airline pilot in today’s aviation industry.
Ian Calvert, CTC Aviation Training (NZ) Limited’s Managing Director, says CTC is unique in New Zealand in that there are no other flight training organisations in the country that partner with airlines and offer airline cadet programmes with direct employment outcomes.
“Our open days are an excellent way for aspiring pilots to meet with one of our airline partners – in this case, Jetstar – and see firsthand how CTC works. If you are someone who is researching flight training options, this is an event not to be missed”, says Mr Calvert.
“Three years on since we began training pilots for Jetstar, many CTC graduates are now flying with the airline. There’s huge opportunity for New Zealanders to land a career as a pilot with one of the region’s fastest-growing international airlines,” he says.
In addition to the Jetstar Cadet Pilot Programme, the open day event will provide information on other CTC training programmes including the New Zealand Diploma in Aviation course which is eligible for partial student loan funding.
Members of the CTC flight training team and current cadets will also be available to answer questions at the open day.
The Open Day is split in to two sessions – morning and afternoon, allowing attendees to choose between the two. Each session includes a prize draw, at the conclusion of the presentation, where attendees can win either a flight in a DA42 aircraft or a chance to try out one of CTC’s flight simulators.
Those interested in attending CTC’s open day on 16 March must register ahead of time via the website www.ctcwings.com/nz or by phoning 07 843 9116.
