To respond to the future job demand of professional pilots for such an aggressive fleet expansion, Thai Vietjet, in close collaboration with Bangkok Aviation Center Public Company Ltd (BAC), will very soon be launching a new recruitment campaign for cadet pilots, a comprehensive training program to develop qualified professional commercial airline pilots.

Under Thai Vietjet’s cadet pilots program, BAC will be responsible for the training of Commercial Pilot License (CPL), whereas Thai Vietjet will handle the aircraft type rating training. Upon successful completion of the whole training program, the students will have guarantee employment taking controls as First Officer of Thai Vietjer’s commercial jetliners.

Under the recently signed Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) between Thai Vietjet and BAC, both will jointly design and create a rigorous selection process and stringent quality monitoring system to ensure the production of the highest quality of professional commercial airline pilots.

Mr. Woranate Laprabang, Chief Executive Officer of Thai Vietjet said: “We are proud to be able to work with BAC in creating opportunity to produce more professional pilots to meet the high demand of pilots in the future. At the same time to enable aviation enthusiasts to realize their flying career ambitions through this exciting program.”

Please stay tuned for more and we look forward to launching the program at Thai Vietjet’s upcoming Sky Career Festival in Bangkok this coming June.
