CTC Aviation makes flying as a profession more accessible to Kiwis
Hamilton, New Zealand - Airline pilot training organisation, CTC Aviation has announced a new Diploma in Aviation that also provides both sponsorship funding and successful graduates with an instructor job with the company at the end of their training.
As a key incentive to encourage enthusiasm for the profession of flight instruction, the company is funding the fees for the Instructor training phase of the course representing a value of $40,000 in sponsorship leading into employment.
CTC Aviation’s Acting Managing Director, Julian So, said “gaining an instructor position at CTC Aviation is a highly rewarding professional vocation either as a career instructor or as part of a pathway towards airline flying.”
“Many of our former instructors are now flying with major airlines, including Air New Zealand and Jetstar. Progressing your aviation career as part of our instructor team is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a great company as well as train talented and enthusiastic airline pilot Cadets.”
“Offering this new Diploma programme is also another way in which we further support the New Zealand aviation industry, whilst also future-proofing our own instructor team,” he explained.
In addition to enabling successful graduates to secure a job with the company at the end of training, the CTC Aviation sponsorship scheme covers trainees’ costs to complete its instructor training course – a value of $40,000. This reduces the headline price of the Diploma programme to $96,000. Trainees can access $70,000 in student loans, leaving them with only $26,000 to self-fund.
CTC Aviation requires a working commitment from successful graduates who accept the sponsorship and then an instructor position. The company currently employs 60 flight instructors with 250 Cadet airline pilots undergoing training and expects this number to grow to approximately 300 Cadets during the next 2 years.
The CTC Aviation Group is a world-leading airline training and pilot resourcing company. The company trains approximately 2,000 aircrew for more than 50 global airlines each year.
New Zealanders interested in applying for the new Diploma in Aviation and gaining a flight instructor job upon successful graduation can find out more at www.ctcwings.com or phone 07 843 3304.
The CTC Aviation Group trains pilots for a range of international airline customers, including British Airways, Dragonair, easyJet, easyJet Switzerland, fastjet, Flybe, flydubai, IndiGo, Jet2.com, the Jetstar Group, Monarch Airlines, Oman Air, Qatar Airways, Royal Brunei Airlines, Thomas Cook Airlines and Thomson Airways.
