01-Nov-2017 The 30th of October saw the relaunch of the Virgin Australia cadet programs. The 2017 programs are unique in that two different cadet streams have been launched at the same time. The Ab Initio program caters for an individual with little or no prior flying experience and the Advanced program caters for an individual that holds a CASA Commercial Pilot License.

"We are delighted to have relaunched our training partnership with Virgin Australia. We commend Virgin Australia for their commitment in giving young Australians the opportunity to achieve their dream of becoming airline pilots. It should be noted that Virgin Australia is the only Australian airline that is currently running two separate cadet program streams and that speaks volumes of their commitment to the industry. I would like to publicly thank Virgin Australia for their continued support of FTA" - Mr Johan Pienaar, CEO
