ST Aerospace Academy (STAA) has been awarded an extension contract to train another 60 cadet pilots for Xiamen Airlines. Starting from March 2014, the cadets will undergo a three-month intensive English language enhancement training in China, before embarking on a 14-month integrated Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) programme, certified by the Civil Aviation Administration of China, in Ballarat, Australia. The signature of this second contract follows that of the first contract in late 2012 - the first two batches of cadets will be graduating in 2014.
