    The Cebu Pacific Cadet Pilot Program is an initiative dedicated to making sure that the Philippines will have highly-skilled and internationally trained airline pilots over the next 5 years. Since it launched in 2017, the program produced 80 cadet pilots out of the 38,000 applications they received.

    CEB is now looking for 16 new recruits for the ninth batch of the pilot training.

    The airline will shoulder the entire cost of the international training. Successful cadets who pass the training already have a guaranteed employment under Cebu Pacific. Once they become a full-fledged commercial pilot, they will start reimbursing CEB for the cost of the pilot training. It will be through a zero-interest scheme over a maximum of 10 years.

    To qualify, applicant must be Filipino citizen and proficient in English.

    He/she must be a college graduate of any degree, with an average grade of at least 80% or its equivalent in subjects related to Math, Physics, and English.

    Applicants will need to present a valid passport with a minimum validity of 2 years, a university transcript of records and an NBI clearance.

    Applicants need not pay for any application fee for the program. After passing the online pre-screening, the next step is passing a series of interviews, computer aptitude tests, medical examinations, psychological tests and spoken English tests. This will then be followed by an on-site screening where successful candidates will pay a fee of AU$425 (about PHP19,000) as testing fee for core skills and pilot aptitude tests among other examinations.

    According to CEB's statement, the program "entails 52 weeks of integrated flight training, theory and education at Flight Training Adelaide (FTA) in Adelaide, Australia—one of the best aviation schools in the region."

    The airline said it will be accepting applications to the program until November 13, 2019.
