• Ab Initio Pilot Training Programs

  • CAE Oxford Aviation Academy is the largest ab initio flight training network in the world  delivering and supporting training at 8 high quality training academies. We have the resources and expertise to train up to 2,000 pilot cadets annually.

    CAE Oxford Aviation Academy’s Pilot Training Programmes provide high quality, focused ab initio training to aspiring pilots across the globe.

    Our programmes combine premier ground school courses with high quality flying instruction delivered in accordance with national aviation authority requirements. However, we know that operating as part of a crew of a modern airline requires a unique set of skills and attributes that embrace all aspects of flying ability and personal aptitude. For this reason our training programmes also incorporate many other elements which, when combined, go well beyond the minimum requirements for licence issue. The cadets graduating from our training courses have had training consistent with airline expectations and are well equipped to meet the challenges facing airline pilots today.
