Jet Airways, India’s full-service, premiere international airline, in collaboration with CAE, a world leader in providing training solutions to commercial airlines, today announced the launch of a new Commercial Pilot License (CPL) cadet pilot training programme aimed at creating more than 380 professional pilots over the next five years, in line with the airline’s growth strategy. Beginning today, candidates can apply at on Jet Airways website or at


As part of the agreement, the first set of 60 cadets will begin training in the second half of 2017, with ground school and flight training at CAE’s flight academies in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, and Gondia (NFTI), India. Thereafter, cadets will continue with Boeing 737 type-rating training at CAE’s training centre in Bengaluru, India. Upon successful completion of their training programme, the selected candidates will be employed by Jet Airways.


"At Jet Airways, we pride ourselves for leveraging best-in-class technology and innovation in all aspects of our business. That extends as much to our advanced cadet pilot training programme. With the introduction of this training programme, we’re creating fresh batches of highly skilled cockpit crew to augment our in-house talent pool. We are delighted to launch a new ab-initio pilot training programme with the world’s leading training organisation, our longstanding partner in training CAE. The training module is designed to provide meaningful training in a consistent manner with similar level of content engagement to all pilots." said Amit Agarwal, Chief Executive Officer (Acting), Jet Airways.


"CAE has been providing world-class training to our pilots for more than 10 years; we are confident that they will play a fundamental role in the creation of our future pilots, helping us recruit and select top talent.", he further added.


“As the demand for professional pilots is on the rise globally, we are proud to support our long-standing airline partner’s initiative to create future competent pilots. CAE is honoured to partner with Jet Airways through the launch of this new pilot training programme and remains committed to continue delivering high-quality training.” said Nick Leontidis, Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions, CAE.


CAE and Jet Airways share a relationship that spans over a decade, including the provision of maintenance support services at CAE’s Bengaluru training centre. Jet Airways currently owns four CAE-built full-flight simulators, including one Airbus A330 FFS, two Boeing 737NG and one Boeing 777-300ER FFS. The six-bay CAE training centre is located near the Bengaluru International Airport at Devanahalli. Operational since late 2008, it is the first non-airline training centre to earn approval as a fixed-wing Type Rating Training Organisation (TRTO) by India’s DGCA.
