CTC Aviation demonstrates diverse career paths at Open Day

Three New Zealanders who have achieved success in the Australasian aviation industry will offer personal insights into their aviation career paths at the CTC Aviation Open Day on 8 March.

The flight training organisation’s Open Day will take place from 10am-4pm at CTC Aviation’s crew training centre located at Hamilton Airport.

Two of this year’s speakers, former CTC Aviation instructor Jason Franklin and former CTC Aviation cadet Phil McColl, both progressed into prestigious careers with Jetstar.

Mr Franklin’s involvement as a CTC Aviation instructor lasted nearly six years and set the scene for his career with Air New Zealand Link and now Jetstar.

“As a flight instructor I gained first-hand knowledge of what it’s like to train with CTC Aviation. I have also had the privilege of working with cadet pilots who are now airline pilots flying for major airlines in New Zealand and around the world.

“The CTC Wings programme has an internationally-recognised track record and is one that provides New Zealanders an opportunity to go directly into employment with a range of airlines including the Jetstar Group and Qatar Airways. There is also opportunity for Kiwis to train to become instructors with CTC Aviation.

“Choosing to train at CTC Aviation opens up a wide range of opportunities and I’m looking forward to providing insight into the challenges and rewards of an aviation career with all who attend the open day,” he said.

Peter Stockwell will also make his first public address as the new Managing Director of CTC Aviation’s New Zealand operations at the open day.

“Over 80 per cent of CTC Aviation’s former instructors are now flying with major airlines. Beginning their aviation careers with CTC has proven to be a great way for graduates to get into an airline.

“Basically, now is a great time for young people to consider a career as an airline pilot. Globally, the demand for airline pilots continues to grow and our graduates are helping fill that demand,” he said.

Open Day attendees will tour CTC Aviation’s 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.

CTC’s Open Day is split into two sessions – morning and afternoon - allowing attendees to choose between the two. Each session includes a prize draw where attendees can win either a flight in a DA42 aircraft or a chance to try out a flight simulator.

Worldwide, CTC has distinguished itself from other flight training organisations by its reputation for assisting its graduates to gain employment with airlines.
