Jetstar launches Cadet Pilot Training Program with CTC

To all Prospective Cadet Pilots,

From a query in my Twitter, a prospective cadet pilot wishes to know about the Jetstar Cadet Pilot Program. Below are some details of its launch in June 2010.

According to the Jetstar Group, it launched the new and exciting career pathway for prospective Cadet Pilots to become a First Officer flying on its modern Airbus A320 fleet of aircraft.

There are two programs

a. Ab-Initio Program
b. Advanced Cadet Program

From the details, it appears that the Programs are restricted to Australian and New Zealand Citizens. However, it is not clear if the Ab-Initio Program is open to all. You can find more details here.

It is also not clear if the program has lapsed. Nevertheless, to learn more about this amazing new opportunity, please see the summary below.

When you have learned about the programs on offer, register your interest including your preferred provider and training pathway using the Registration Form

You may only express interest in one supplier so please choose carefully

Program

Ab Initio Program
(for candidates with little or no flying experience) Commercial Licence + MECIR + ATPL subjects + ACP below

Advanced Cadet Program (ACP, for pilots with a CPL,MECIR and ATPL subjects)
Includes Multi Crew Training + Jet Conversion Training + A320 endorsement + Jetstar In-Flight Line Training

Oxford Aviation

Length of Program : Eighteen (18) months

Flying School Location : Moorabbin Airport, Victoria

Course Cost : $87,105 AUD plus GST plus ACP cost below

Accommodation & Meals : optional - $19,500 AUD plus GST

Funding Available : For Australia citizens through Fee Help*

Eligibility : This program is available to pilots who hold an Australian Commercial Pilots Licence, Multi-Engine Command Instrument Rating and have completed ATPL subjects

Length of Program : Three (3) months

Endorsement Location : Hong Kong

Total ACP Course Cost (includes Jetstar In-Flight Training costs) : $86,000 AUD (All meals and accommodation provided for duration of training in Hong Kong )

How does the Jetstar Cadet Pilot Program work with regard to financial assistance :

Jetstar will provide you with sponsorship (AUD 21K) towards the training costs of the ACP, provided you stay with Jetstar for 6 years. In addition to this Jetstar will fund (up front) the remaining costs of the ACP program - this will be repaid to Jetstar by cadets over a period of 6 years whilst you are employed as a pilot operating for Jetstar.

Should you leave for any reason, you will need to immediately repay all outstanding amounts.

Following the completion of the ACP program, if you are offered employment to operate within the Jetstar group you may also be required to enter into a bond or other financial arrangement, depending on the jurisdiction in which you are employed. The amount represents the reasonable investment the Jetstar group will make in your development over the first 6 years as a pilot. Should you leave within 6 years of employment, you will be required to make payment in accordance with the bond or other applicable arrangement
