Our airline pilot scholarships are available to specific territories each year - so you need to take advantage of the opportunity now while you can. The costs involved in pilot training are prohibitive for most, especially when there is a chance that you won't find a job with an airline.
CADETPILOT.AERO will cover all of the costs of the training, including your housing and a monthly stipend and guarantee you a job when you graduate. Now is the time to make your dreams of becoming an airline pilot come true!
At the moment available only for Filipino citizens
Applications deadline: 30.04.2022
We offer our sponsorship as we firmly believe that the cockpit doors should be open to anyone, regardless of background or financial situation. There is no sign of growth in the aviation industry slowing down, so pilots are becoming more and more in demand: we think that a diverse pool of pilots is good for everyone in the industry. All we ask is that you have the motivation, the enthusiasm and the passion to learn.
The sponsorship scheme covers the following (for the candidates who are successfully selected):
The entire cost of the flight training programme
Visa Processing and round trip tickets to Prague
Housing for the duration of training
Monthly stipend (for food and personal living costs)
Initial aviation medical examinations and medical renewals
CAA flight test and commercial pilot license application fees
The total investment by CADETPILOT.AERO is $122,000 USD per candidate, which reflects the high-quality training and cutting-edge facilities that we provide. Reimbursement only takes place after the graduated pilot is employed by one of our partner airlines and takes the form of salary deductions. There is no interest rate applied, no hidden costs, and no unexpected fees. The total amount deducted from the salary depends on the airline that the graduate joins, but is normally in the region of 20%.
In the extremely unlikely event that we cannot secure you a role as the first officer in one of our partner airlines, you will never pay us anything. We believe that our selection process and expert training generates the best pilots in the world, and we are willing to take on the financial risk.
Self-funding of the programme by candidates who do not pass the initial selection process is only possible in exceptional cases - the programme is designed for handpicked candidates who pass our selection process.Apply Now Download Brochure
