Airbus has opened its own flight academy and extended its training services offering by adding “ab-initio” to its portfolio.

The Airbus Flight Academy Europe, formerly known as Cassidian Aviation Training Services (CATS), is based in Angoulême, France.

The academy, which aims to train up to 200 pilot cadets annually, will use Airbus standardised instructors to deliver the ab-initio Pilot Cadet Training program approved by EASA at the end of 2018, complementing the intermediate and advanced training phases that are already available and provided in the existing training network on 17 sites worldwide.

Using a modern fleet of both single and multi-engine aircraft equipped with full digital cockpit technology as well as the latest flight simulators, the training program will equip students with the skills and mindset required to become “operationally-ready pilots” focusing on the all-important development of key pilot technical and behavioural competencies.

The Airbus Pilot Cadet Training Program is open to high school graduates over 18 years old worldwide. Candidates will undergo online and on-site screening tests before being eligible for training which will include 750 hours of ground school, plus 200 hours of flight training.
