One of Europe’s Leading Pilot Training Group’s Announces Launch of Airline Cadet Program

02nd Sep 2022

Pilot Flight Academy (PFA), one of Europe’s largest and most modern flight academies located at Sandefjord airport Torp and Notodden airport Tuven, announced it has partnered with Wideroe, a Norwegian airline, allowing student pilots to join their Cadet Pilot Pathway.

The partnership between PFA and Wideroe aims to provide a direct path for exceptional pilots to launch their commercial pilot career. As part of the pathway, student pilots have the opportunity to complete their pilot training at PFA but with a direct route into a type rating and First Officer positions at Wideroe.

“We are pleased to announce this Cadet Pilot Pathway with PFA. We see a significant and sustained demand for talented pilots who want to be part of the Wideroe family, and we’re confident this innovative new program is an exceptional pathway to becoming a professional pilot for Wideroe. As a Norwegian airline we wish to offer this opportunity for young Norwegians wishing to develop their commercial flying career in Norway. By partnering with PFA, we are confident we can meet our pilot recruitment demands whilst maintaining our high operational standards. We initially expect to have a requirement for a minimum of 12 cadets each year,” said Stein Nilsen, Chief Executive Officer, Wideroe.

The first handpicked students will join the Wideroe Cadet Pathway early next year, with ongoing opportunities available to PFA students in the coming years.
