tJetBlue’s seventh pilot recruiting pathway, Gateway Select, will see CAE, the airline’s new partner, help deliver the training curriculum.
Designed specifically for candidates without previous aviation training, Gateway Select will allow participants the opportunity to become JetBlue pilots after completing a rigorous four-year training programme that incorporates classroom learning, extensive real-world flying experience and instruction in full-flight simulators.
“Many dream of becoming a pilot but are deterred by financial realities,” averred Warren Christie, senior vice president of safety, security, and training, JetBlue. “We have an opportunity to create the best pilot training programme in the US while also removing some of the economic and social barriers so that those with the natural aptitude can pursue their dream.”
