In this program, AirAsia has teamed up with Omni Aviation Corporation in a bid to provide successful cadets with up to two years of technical and leadership training. It is to reach the competencies that are required by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines.
“AirAsia is proud to have the best pilots in the country and we will strive to train more young cadets with our partner Omni Aviation Corporation,” said Ricky Isla, the CEO of AirAsia Philippines. “Through the ‘Dare to Fly!
