Bristow Group Inc. (NYSE: VTOL) is looking for the pilots of the future to join their prestigious 2023 UK cadet programme.
Run in partnership with Helicentre Aviation the Bristow UK cadet programme offers a unique pathway to becoming a helicopter pilot. There are four places available on this year’s course which will take cadets from having little flight experience, to being qualified commercial helicopter pilots, flying as part of Bristow’s North Sea team.
But that’s not all for 2023, as Bristow is also looking for two pilots currently holding a CPL(H) to receive valuable Instrument Rating scholarships.
The Bristow cadet programme, now in its fifth year, is unique among UK helicopter operators and builds on a 50 Year legacy of providing careers to future pilots. It takes successful applicants all the way from their first ‘ab-initio’ training on an Integrated CPL(H) course to achieving their Multi-Engine Instrument Rating – giving them the skills and qualifications necessary to fly with Bristow in the North Sea.
Bristow UK Director, Matt Rhodes, said: “We are enormously pleased to launch our cadet programme for 2023. The successful recruits will embark on a life-changing course, taking them from having little flight experience to becoming fully qualified, professional helicopter pilots.
“On graduating from Helicentre Aviation, the cadets will join the Bristow team where they will receive further operational training at our specialist Aberdeen training centre, which includes three advanced, full-motion helicopter simulators.
“From there they will begin flying in the North Sea as First Officers with Bristow, the world’s largest helicopter operator.”
