Montreal. 20 December 2018. CAE announced the opening of applications for the CAE Women in Flight scholarship program in collaboration with five leading global airlines. Five full scholarships, covering the entire cost of a cadet pilot training program, including accommodation and travel, will be awarded to outstanding female ambassadors to become role models and to inspire more women to join the pilot profession. Upon successful completion of their training program, the selected candidates will have the opportunity to secure their first pilot job and fly for one of the following airlines: Aeromexico, AirAsia, CityJet, easyJet, or a fifth operator which will be unveiled in the upcoming weeks, subject to certain conditions.

“As part of this first edition, CAE will provide financial support to aspiring female pilots by awarding five full scholarships to one of CAE’s selected airline-mentored cadet pilot training programs across our global training network,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions. “Over the next decade, the civil aviation industry will need over 300,000 new pilots. With women currently representing less than 5% of pilots, we want to take a proactive approach to promote a better gender balance and tap into a wider pool of talent. We are looking for dedicated candidates who can inspire a new generation of professional pilots, and we look forward to accompany these future ambassadors, and passionate women throughout their journey.”

The introduction of CAE Women in Flight scholarship program was originally announced at the Farnborough Airshow in July 2018.
