Commercial pilot training and sourcing 

With training programmes that span the entire career life cycle of a professional pilot, CAE can provide your commercial airline with solutions that address all of your pilot sourcing needs. Our solutions are flexible and can be completely tailored to suit your airline's training requirements.

Pilot Creation : Cadet Sourcing and Training

CAE trains aspiring pilots though its network of flight schools around the world. A range of training programmes are available including, Commercial Pilot License (CPL), Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL), and airline-mentored Multi-Crew Pilot Licence (MPL), all of which combine premier ground school courses with high quality flying instruction.

As the leader in the development of airline-mentored competency based cadet training programs, CAE can manage the entire recruitment and training process of new pilots for your airline. CAE will identify and train cadets, and deliver highly trained and competent first officers to your airline’s specific pilot profile.
