NEW:  JANUARY 2015 - CTC WINGS MPL in partnership with Flybe

This new part-sponsored MPL career programme provides a fantastic opportunity for aspiring pilots to make their career fly and become a Flybe First Officer. 

Flybe will make a significant contribution towards the cost of training which will take place at CTC Aviation's Crew Training Centres in the United Kingom and Phoenix, Arizona. The final, advanced phase of aircraft specific training on the Dash-8 Q400 will be completed at the Flybe Training Academy in Exeter (UK) before Initial Operating Experience (IOE) and 'flying the line' as a Flybe First Officer.  

“The most recent group of 6 new CTC WINGS pilots who graduated in December 2014 have all qualified on line and completed their first simulator check. They are a credit to the CTC Aviation training team and I am delighted to be announcing yet another intake – this time following the MPL syllabus - and further strengthening the partnership that we have forged with CTC Aviation in recent years.”  
Ian Baston, Director of Flight Operations, Flybe
