West Atlantic, the UK's largest independent cargo carrier, has announced it will be recruiting a new intake of cadet pilots for their pilot sponsorship programme based at Coventry Airport.

The sponsorship scheme is funded fully up front by West Atlantic Airlines. Once type rated and employed as a West Atlantic First Officer, the pilot then pays back 50% of their training costs. ATPL ground and flight training for the West Atlantic cadet pilots is provided by ProPilot and Aeros at Coventry Airport.
