CAE (Chalet A30) launched a new scholarship program called CAE Women in Flight, which is committed to supporting the advancement of women in the aviation industry. One of the program objectives is to ensure selected candidates become role models and inspire more women to join the industry.

Through this program, CAE will offer five full scholarships to aspiring female pilots for one of its cadet pilot training programs through its global training network. Additionally, CAE will help selected candidates find their first job through its global partners.

“By leveraging our global training network and our relationships with operators, CAE can provide aspiring female pilots direct access to our numerous active pilot creation programs around the world, facilitating their journey to the cockpit,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE group president of civil aviation training solutions. “CAE is committed to promoting the pilot career to women, and making it accessible to exceptional women who might not have the financial means to make their dream a reality.”
