hey Adam, my name is Ajay am from India.
I do understand the thing which you told, so I have a few questions to share and ask,
Q 1 : As I am intending to join a BSc. (HONS) Professional Aviation Pilot Practice course in Middle sex university, London through L3 airline academy (CTC wings) - for September 2018 intake - will that be a good option for me to work as a airline pilot (or) getting into a airline cadet program would be a good one? As I too have an opportunity to apply for cadet pilot programs in my country -Indigo airlines and Jet Airways - but these are regional airlines will that be a good one than these or a airline pilot course with L3 / CTC wings with a degree?
what are the difference between a cadet pilot program with a airline and a Bsc. hons course with CPL, MPL, ATPL frozen? who would be given a priority for recruitment in other airlines?
Q 2 : In L3 airline academy page they have mentioned that they would be giving intern / work placement in 3rd year of my course along with their Partnered Airlines -will I be recruited / eligible for this placement for intern / job through graduate placement team as I am not an European / have the right to work/live in EEA (European Economic Area) as I am an Indian with a Indian passport.
Q 3 : After completing this BSc. hons course from middle sex university and L3 airline academy I would be obtaining an CPL License, Multi instrument rating and an ATPL (Frozen) with these qualifications will I be able to apply for Second officer programs in other airlines like Singapore airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Virgin Australia, Emirates etc… ?
I have seen in their Second officer program page in the respective airline websites, it shows that they can be of any nationality with a CPL / ATPL frozen along with 250 hours of flying - they can apply for this program - Is that true? will I be selected?
How many years will it take to climb up the ladder as an First Officer though this course?
Please do answer these questions sir! as they may make a clear statement to me!
