OSM Aviation and European Pilot Selection & Training launch a Monitored Cadet Pilot program.
Since 2016 EPST has been the partner of choice in providing Pilot Selection Services and providing OSM Aviation jointly selected EPST graduates to fly as First Officers for many of OSM’s clients f.e. norwegian, Turkish Airlines, Thomas Cook etc. To date some 20 EPST graduates have found their way to the right seat of the B737 with OSM Aviation.
Building on the existing relationship between OSM Aviation and EPST, both companies now launch a joint Monitored Cadet Pilot program.
Lise Lunding, Director Training at OSM Aviation Group commented as follows: “At OSM Aviation we are very pleased to launch our 2017 OSM Aviation Mentored Cadet Program in cooperation with European Pilot Selection & Training (EPST). EPST is one of the flight training centres which has undergone OSM Aviation’s compliance and best practice audit and qualified for training cadets to enter OSM Aviation and fly for one of our airline customers after graduating. Through our partnership with EPST we wish to ensure the continued availability of professional and well trained pilots for our clients and their B737 fleet. At OSM Aviation Group we offer airlines worldwide to take care of their air crew members. You can see who our customers are at our website osmaviation.com.”
