Boeing subsidiary Jeppesen is teaming with multiple pilot training centers worldwide to guide cadets through the ab initio stage of training to become professional pilots. The Jeppesen ab initio pilot training program is the first step in a comprehensive Boeing flight training program that will advance student pilots through several stages of training from inexperienced newcomers to becoming licensed commercial pilots. As part of the Boeing Flight Services portfolio, the Jeppesen ab intio program prepares the student for the jet bridge training delivered by Boeing. This gives students the advantage of a single source of training to move from cadet to jet pilot with the most respected companies in aviation. Jeppesen is working with leading international airlines to incorporate airline-oriented elements into an ab intio curriculum. This will enhance the Jeppesen program by providing real-world learning opportunities for student pilots. In addition, Dubai-based Emirates Aviation College will utilize the Jeppesen flight school network to provide high quality ground and flight school instruction for cadets and help support a continued pipeline of qualified candidates destined for commercial aviation careers.
