Although more focused on B2B contracts, Airways Aviation ESMA, part of Airways Aviation Group, has increased its intake of B2C students, having welcomed in September 35 cadets for the Integrated ATPL course and 48 students for the cabin crew course.
These 83 new students are coming mostly from France but also from 12 additional countries including Europe, Africa and Asia. Some are also from the French overseas provinces originating from Oceania, Africa and the Caribbean.
In the group of 35 new ATPL cadets, five are female students who benefited from the Women Scholarship announced early this year. This scholarship intends to attract more women into aviation and to the pilot profession and offers €10.000 (ten thousand euro) to the ones that pass the assessment, which will be used to cut down their training costs.
The next pilot and cabin crew intake will be in November and there are limited seats to enroll in the courses.
To handle the growth of the last few months in new intakes of self-sponsored students as well as the several B2B contracts its currently running, Airways Aviation ESMA has an ongoing recruitment process for EASA Qualified Flight Instructors. It has recruited 20 new instructors in the last 4 months, but the process is open and wants to add more highly motivated instructors to the team.
