The West Atlantic Cadet Scheme is a long standing and highly regarded pilot sponsorship/cadet programme. Cadet pilots are employed by West Atlantic and all live together in shared accommodation they cover many cadet duties whilst concurrently training for their ATPL ground studies, Commercial Pilots Licence (CPL), Instrument Rating (IR) and finally type training.
The West Atlantic sponsorship scheme is funded fully up front by West Atlantic Airlines. Once type rated and employed as a West Atlantic First Officer, the pilot then pays back 50% of their training costs.
