Qatar Airways awards future pilot supply contract to CTC Aviation
Qatar Airways , one of the world's fastest growing airlines, has selected world-leading airline training organisation, CTC Aviation to supply pilots to support the airline's rapid expansion plans.
Voted Airline of the Year 2011, Qatar Airways operates one of the world's youngest and modern fleet to 113 destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, North America and South America.
Currently operating 108 aircraft, the airline has orders worth over US$50 billion for Boeing 787s, 777s, Airbus A350s, A380s and the A320 family of aircraft. As a result Qatar Airways has significant pilot recruitment campaigns taking place around the world and a supply of graduate pilots from CTC's world renown "CTC Wings" programme will form a key part of the intake in future years.
CTC is a key partner for Qatar Airways to deliver the pool of professional pilots that we need to meet our operational requirements."
The first 18 CTC pilots selected by the airline will complete their A320 type rating training at CTC's United Kingdom-based airline training centre during April and May and commence line operations with Qatar operating out of Doha during summer 2012.
Laura Elliott a CTC Wings graduate pilot who will now be joining Qatar Airways as a First Officer after her type rating training in May commented - "I wanted to train with CTC for an opportunity exactly like this; to join the world's best airline. The prospects within Qatar Airways for career development are second to none. To be given this chance at such an early stage in my career is precisely what I've been working so hard for throughout my training. I am very grateful that CTC have forged this new partnership with Qatar Airways , allowing me and my fellow cadets to further realise our potential."
As part of CTC's philosophy to work in partnership with their client airlines, a CTC TRE (Type Rating Examiner) has been working alongside the Qatar Airways team in Doha to ensure that the type rating training for the new intake pilots is accurately tailored to incorporate Qatar Airways ' SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) and company culture. "As an airline training provider, we believe this is just one of the factors that set us apart from our competitors" commented Captain Woodward.
CTC Aviation has training centres in the United Kingdom and New Zealand and trains in the region of 2,000 ab-initio and experienced pilots each year for approximately 50 clients around the world. The company also recently announced a new partnership with Flybe, Europe's largest regional airline.
