Flying High

Ever wanted to be a pilot? Now's your chance

CityJet are hiring ten.

CITYJET HAS ANNOUNCED it will hire and train ten new pilots.

Recruitment for the “Climb High” mentored cadet programme will begin in June, but applications are open today. With passenger numbers climbing, the Irish regional airline is hoping to deliver qualified pilots for new routes.

The 10 Cadets will be employed by CityJet upon successful completion of their 18 months training across the CityJet network, with current crew bases in Dublin, London City Airport, Paris, Stockholm and Helsinki and, later this year, Amsterdam.

CityJet’s Director of Operations Robert Tatten said the pilots will take on a number of planes.

“The launch of our new cadet programme will provide the start of an exciting career path for the successful applicants.

CityJet has undergone significant growth in recent months, with, in addition to our Avro RJ85 fleet, eight Bombardier CRJ900s joining our new Nordic network and the arrival this summer of our new Superjet SSJ100s.

“This is definitely a great time to join CityJet and we look forward to welcoming our new recruits to our Cadet Programme later this year.”

Training will be provided by the company at the CAE Oxford Aviation Academy and a flight school in Phoenix, Arizona.
