This World Pilot' Day easyJet has reopened its renowned Generation easyJet Pilot Training programme for the 2023 intake of approximately 200 aspiring pilots. The Generation easyJet Pilot Training Programme  is delivered in partnership with CAE and provides aspiring airline pilots the highest standards of training to become qualified commercial airline pilots in around two years. Ground training is delivered at CAE’s European aviation academy locations in Gatwick, Milan, Brussels, or Madrid, and flight training at CAE Phoenix in the US. Upon successful completion of the programme, graduates begin their careers flying as a Second Officer with easyJet. 

easyJet is searching for the next generation of pilots and recruitment is now open for 200 cadets to join its pilot training programme. The airline has ambitious plans for 1000 new pilots in total to train with and join the airline by 2027. 

easyJet has long championed increasing diversity in the airline industry and has recently announced it is funding opportunities for young women and young people from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds to launch a career in aviation through a new partnership with Fantasy Wings. With still around only 6% of pilots worldwide being women, the airline remains focused on encouraging more women to become a pilot to join this exciting and rewarding profession

Applications are now being accepted for programmes beginning as of December 2023 and graduating as of 2026.​Applications for the Generation easyJet Pilot Training Programme are now open at becomeapilot.easyjet.com
