AeroGuard Flight Training Center Celebrates Graduation of First Class of Cathay Pacific Cadet Pilots
AeroGuard Flight Training Center, a leading provider of professional pilot training, is proud to announce the successful completion of its inaugural class of Cathay Pacific cadet pilots. This significant milestone is the first of many within the five-year agreement between AeroGuard and Cathay Pacific, whereby AeroGuard trains the premier airline’s cadet pilots on an accelerated timeline. Through their high-quality training and accelerated timeline, AeroGuard demonstrates unparalleled commitment to aviation excellence.
Within this strategic partnership, AeroGuard Flight Training Center built a customized course to meet Cathay Pacific’s specific requirements as well as those of the HKCAD, while integrating AeroGuard’s high-quality curriculum and training procedures that establishes industry leading pilots.
Cathay Pacific’s first class of cadets have now completed their training with AeroGuard and are returning to Cathay to complete their last phase of training before they begin flying for the airline. These cadets trained within an accelerated 10-month timeline and completed all necessary licenses and ratings that has prepared them for their future careers with Hong Kong’s leading airline.
Across its three U.S campuses, AeroGuard Flight Training Center offers state-of-the-art training facilities with the capacity to train hundreds of future pilots. As U.S. pilots typically require 1,500 hours of flight experience before they can fly for an airline, AeroGuard maintains a consistent pipeline of highly trained flight instructors that allow them to continuously welcome airline cadets. This structure provides every student pilot and instructor the resources and learning experience they need to become capable pilots and reach their dream career.
Joel Davidson, AeroGuard’s CEO stated, “We are proud of this partnership with Cathay Pacific and the successful graduation of our first class of their cadet pilots. Their success is a testament to the collaborative efforts of both AeroGuard and Cathay Pacific, demonstrating our shared commitment to shaping the future of aviation. This milestone signifies AeroGuard’s dedication to delivering high-quality accelerated training programs that establish a strong foundation for future pilots and their professional careers. Within this partnership and its ongoing success, AeroGuard reinforces our partnership with premier airlines to provide them with industry leading pilots.”
AeroGuard Flight Training Center looks forward to continuing its partnership with Cathay Pacific with plans to continually accept new cadet classes from Cathay training at their Phoenix, Arizona campus. AeroGuard’s growing capacity and training resources prepares them for additional student pilots to join them and build a foundation for their future professional careers.
