Introduction from Flight Operations

Dear Applicant

Captain Eamon Kierans

Aer Lingus has a unique and proud history of Mentored Cadet Pilot Training which spans over five decades. During this time, these training programmes have provided an opportunity for many people to pursue their dream of becoming an Airline Pilot.

Our highly successful schemes continue to provide excellent Airline Pilot opportunities for those with the desired qualities and ambition.

Here in the Flight Operations Training Department we are very pleased to launch our 2017 Mentored Cadet Pilot Training Programme. This programme will be delivered in cooperation with our chosen Flight Training School; Flight Training Europe at Jerez. The initial training will take place in Spain and will be followed by the Airbus 320 Type Rating Course in Dublin.

To achieve a place on this course, you need to be highly motivated and must demonstrate the passion to become a pilot.

If successful, your journey towards becoming a qualified Airbus A320 pilot with Aer Lingus will begin in January 2017.

May I take this opportunity to wish you every success with your application.

Captain Eamon Kierans,
