Virgin Australia graduated (26-Nov-2018) a group of pilot cadets after training at Flight Training Adelaide. The graduating group of ab initio pilots have secured flying positions with Virgin Australia and will now move onto the ATR 72 and Boeing 777 aircraft types as certified First and Second Officers. The cadet’s graduation comes shortly after the 2019 intake was announced with 16 new cadets to join the programme. It also comes after Virgin Australia announced it had been selected by Tamworth Regional Council as the preferred airline group to establish a pilot training centre in the city. The next ab initio courses will commence in Jan-2019 and Jun-2019.
