Peach Aviation has established the pilot training program Peach Pilot Challenge Program with Airbus, in cooperation with the ANA Group, Airbus, and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (SMBC).
Applications from prospective challenge trainees started to be accepted August 6. The first information session for applicants was held in Osaka on August 24. More than 40 participants attended this first information session where the description of the program was presented and the current pilots shared their testimonials.
This program makes it possible for successful applicants to obtain the licenses necessary to become an airline pilot through an advanced pilot training program selected by Peach and with the support of the ANA Group. The training program consists of two parts: the first part is training for the EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) license overseas and the second part is for the JCAB (Japan Civil Aviation Bureau) license, which is conducted in Japan.
Asia is seeing rapid growth in overall flying demand for various reasons, including the spread of LCCs, and Peach provides practical training programs and trains pilots while reducing the financial burden on those who want to become pilots. Peach is working to ameliorate the future shortage of pilots through these efforts.Email Post to a Friend
