- A programme open to candidates without previous flying experience and fully financed by Air France

- Close to 200 cadet pilots already undergoing training

- Online applications can be submitted at corporate.airfrance.com before December 15, 2019

Air France is launching a new cadet pilot training campaign. Successful candidates will receive a comprehensive training programme entirely financed by the company.

The selected candidates will join the 200 or so cadets already undergoing training at one of three partner flight training schools - the French National School of Civil Aviation, the EPAG flight school and the L3HARRIS Academy.

After completing a 24-month training course, they will join the group as first officers on Air France's Airbus A320 or Transavia's Boeing 737.

Promoting diversity and inspiring professional vocations

Acceptance on the cadet programme is subject to conditions for candidates who have baccalauréat level qualifications and without any previous flight experience. It is designed to inspire candidates from all backgrounds by promoting the career opportunities offered by the profession of airline pilot.

With 14% of female cadets in the previous year's programme versus 9% of female pilots at the company, the cadet programme encourages women to access technical professions and illustrates Air France's commitment to equal employment opportunities.

Applications can be submitted until December 15, 2019 on the corporate.airfrance.com website.
