First Airbus-Trained Pilot Cadets Have Graduated

First Group Completes Their Initial Training At Airbus’ Flight Academy Europe

Proudly wearing their newly-pinned wings, a group of pilot cadets have become the first to graduate from Airbus’ Ab-Initio Pilot Cadet Training Program.

These cadets underwent their first phase of training at Airbus Flight Academy Europe in Angoulême, France, which included over 750 hours in ground school, plus 200 hours of flight instruction. They will now transfer to the Airbus Training Centre in Toulouse, for jet orientation and multi-crew cockpit cooperation courses, where they can follow upwith a Type Rating.

Ab-Initio means “from the beginning,” and thanks to the full Airbus training program, a cadet with no flying experience can be trained and qualified as a pilot. Airbus Flight Training has the advantage of providing a single and harmonious curriculum from beginning to end, applying Airbus flight training standards, training concepts and technologies, such as competency-based training and assessment.

"This nurtures a new generation of Airbus ambassadors, who will carry the Airbus pilot competencies and airmanship values, from training to commercial operations," notes Captain Jean-Michel Bigarré, Airbus Head of Flight Training Worldwide

With the launch of the program in 2018, the Ab-Initio Pilot Cadet Training program currently has two partner schools: the Airbus Flight Academy Europe in Angoulême; and the “Escuela de Aviación México” in Mexico City. Today, there are over 70 cadets at the two locations.

By adding the ab-initio program to Airbus Training activities, the company supports airline customers to prepare the future generation of pilots, ensuring cadets benefit from the company’s high levels of safety, reliability and expertise. The pilot cadet program is open worldwide for high school graduates over 18 years old.
Looking to air traffic recovery in the coming years

Airbus has been offering training courses for airline customers since its creation 50 years ago, and has always taken a comprehensive and innovative approach with the introduction of the latest technologies and learning concepts. Continuing with this strategy, the cadet training helps prepare the pilots of tomorrow, contributing to the air transport industry’s readiness for the air traffic recovery that is anticipated during 2023-2025 timeframe.

With the COVID-19 pandemic’s onset, cadets followed their training through video conferencing classroom instruction, prior to progressively returning to school with all the necessary health and safety measures in place. This remote instruction was developed by the Airbus Flight Training operation, with approval provided by Europe’s EASA airworthiness authority one day after the COVID-19 lockdown was applied in France.
