    Cool British Airways Cadet Pilot Program

    The British Cadet Pilot Programme known as the British Airways Future Pilot Programme, is yet another in the long list of major airlines extending a welcoming hand to both experienced and non-pilots alike.
    Launched in 2011, the programme is designed to provide world class training to pilots for employment as a first officers starting a career on short haul aircraft like their B737 and A320. You apply online at www.bafuturepilot.com which triggers off the process of an application review for suitability.
    Their requirements are simple as stated on the website:

    "This unique programme is open to any aspiring pilots who will be between the ages of 18 – 55 on 1st February 2012. Aspiring pilots from school leavers to those changing career are all very welcome to apply. You’ll need seven GCSEs at grade C or above (with Bs in English, Maths and a Science subject) plus three A-Levels, at grade BBC or above (General Studies excluded). If you don’t have the GCSE/A-Levels (or equivalents) that we’re looking for, but hold an Honours degree at 2:1 or above, we would be very happy to use that as evidence of your academic achievement. If you do meet the minimum GCSE/A-Level requirements, and you are a university graduate, there is no minimum degree class required. If you’ve got equivalent qualifications then you will be asked to provide a Letter of Comparability from UK NARIC before attending your first selection day.

    You must hold a valid passport, have the ability to travel globally without restriction, and also have the right to live and work in the UK."

    This is probably one of the best when it comes to being a cadet pilot because employment as a pilot for British Airways seems to be a very rewarding one.

    I think that unless you have to be able to like and work in the U.K to qualify. I think. Anyone knows?

    Are you planning on financing the training or paying yourself?

    Well, you have the qualifications and money so go ahead and apply when it opens up again. You can always contact them since the applications are now closed and they will guide you on what needs to be done for next season.
