WESTJET FLIGHTPATH PROGRAM

 

WE KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING

Given the current climate with the aviation industry, it must be a bad time to pursue aviation as a career, right? Actually, the opposite is true. The aviation industry has been severely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, but prior to Covid, the industry was experiencing unprecedented growth and opportunity. 

What we do know is that these opportunities did not go away, they just got delayed for a bit. In fact, the pilot shortage that existed pre-pandemic will be even more prominent once the industry recovers due to things like early retirements. In a way, you can think of pilot opportunities as a sleeping giant right now

There is no guarantee as to when the industry will fully recover and be back to pre-pandemic numbers, but history tells us it will be back! It should recover with a nice, steady growth year-over-year. Given it takes approximately three years of training and working to prepare yourself for the airlines, there is no better time to start than right now!

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

 

In 2017, Springbank Air Training College partnered with WestJet to create the WestJet Flightpath Program. We were the very first traditional flight school in Canada to offer such a partnership! Since it's inception, the mandate of this partnership has always been to help our learners navigate the complex process of becoming a commercial pilot. 

SATC has refined its process and honed its delivery methods to efficiently and effectively produce proficient and safe pilots. Here at SATC, we do not believe that the job of training the pilots of tomorrow stops once flight training is complete- We also provide soft skill training to round out our student's education and personal development
