Airbus Launches Pilot Cadet Training Programme in Mexico

In its latest Global Services Forecast, Airbus predicts that a total of 540,000 new pilots will be needed over the next two decades.

To help meet this demand, the aircraft manufacturer is launching the Airbus Pilot Cadet Training Programme to include ab initio training.

The programme is being launched in partnership with Escuela de Aviacion Mexico (EAM), located near to the Airbus Mexico Training Centre.

After completing their initial training with Escuela de Aviacion Mexico (EAM), cadets will qualify at the Airbus Mexico Training centre to become Airbus A320 pilots. Click to enlarge.

EAM was established in 1943 and currently trains around 200 cadets per year. Serving Mexicos main airlines, EAM is located in Mexico City and Guadalajara with flight bases in Acapulco, Cuernavaca and Atizapn. The company operates one of the largest modern training fleets in the country and uses latest-technology simulators, including an A320 for its ab initio programme.

After completing their initial training with EAM, cadets will qualify at the Airbus Mexico Training centre to become Airbus A320 pilots.

The programme will be open to young people over 18 years old who have graduated from high school. Candidates will undergo screening tests online and on-site. The first batch of Airbus cadets is expected to start training in January 2019, graduating in July 2020.

Airbus has said that similar partnerships are planned across the globe over the coming years.
