easyJet Airline to speak at next CTC Wings Open Day
CTC is delighted to announce that Colin Rydon, easyJet’s Pilot Training Manager, will be the guest speaker at the next CTC Wings Open Day on 5 November 2011.
Since the beginning of 2011, a record 202 CTC Wings Cadets have started their type rating training for easyJet alone and a further 8 will commence their training each month for the foreseeable future, thus reinforcing CTC’s position as easyJet’s preferred supplier of pilots.
For aspiring pilots wanting to learn more about the prospects for cadet pilots joining the industry over the coming years, the Open Day will provide an ideal opportunity to learn more about easyJet’s plans for the future, as well as a wider insight into the global pilot requirement from CTC’s UK CEO – Captain Rob Clarke, who will also be speaking during the day.
“easyJet over the years has recruited more than 500 CTC Wings Cadet pilots. In addition to this, they have also employed more than 500 CTC Wings ATP pilots and we have completed far in excess of 2,000 type ratings for the airline since they started operations nearly 16 years ago.” says Captain Rob Clarke, CEO of CTC’s UK operations. “Earlier this year we celebrated 15 years of working together with easyJet as a key supplier – a significant landmark and one that we are enormously proud of. Having
Colin to speak at our next Open Day will round off a year of an unprecedented number of type ratings for our CTC Wings Cadets – the vast majority of whom are now flying for easyJet. We believe no other flight training provider can claim such a record and we intend to continue ensuring our cadet graduates are not only the best pilots, but are also offered the best airline placement opportunities on graduation.”
The Open Day has proven understandably popular! In addition to the impressive guest speaker programme, visitors will be able to tour the facilities and try their hand at the controls of the Boeing and Airbus simulators at CTC’s Crew Training Centre – Nursling, near Southampton. Furthermore representatives of the BBVA bank will be on hand to answer questions about funding and members of CTC’s team will be available to give an insight into the unique airline-orientated selection and training processes employed by CTC for both “CTC Wings” and the company’s tailored airline programmes. For
those individuals deciding between the integrated or modular route, the “CTC Takeoff” team involved in the delivery of CTC’s modular training programme, will also be available throughout the day. Additionally, perhaps of most value, will be the opportunity to chat with CTC Wings trainees and graduates about their own personal experience through training and in the airlines.
