United Aviation to train SpiceJet pilots

New Delhi: Low cost carrier SpiceJet today said it has entered into an agreement with global pilot training firm United Aviation (UA) for its cadet pilot programme.
As per the agreement, UA will select and train pilots under the SpiceJet Cadet Pilot programme, which was launched earlier this month, the airline said in a statement.
SpiceJet has already recruited more than two batches of cadet pilots from UA under the scheme, it said. The cadet pilots will undergo theoretical training in Gurgaon for a period of two months, prior to proceeding for flight training, it said.
United Aviation’s flight training is done in Canada and US and it would be followed by the licence conversion process in India, leading to the attainment of a Commercial Pilots Licence issued by India’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation.
