Cathay Launches Student Program


Cathay Pacific is the latest airline to look for more pilots and other employees with a high school program that launches in Toronto Oct. 18

The “I Can Fly (Canada) program will take select Grade 11 and Grade 12 students behind the scenes of Cathay’s Toronto operations for a look at all the career opportunities available at a modern airline.

“Through a series of lectures and field trips, Grade 11 and 12 students will learn about the diversity of this dynamic, fast-paced environment, and will discover if it is the right career path for them.” the company said in a news release.

The students will spend every Wednesday evening at the airport looking at Cathay’s operations and will expose them to the functions and roles of employees in cockpit and cabin crew, sales, engineering and safety and airport operations.

Graduation will take place on Nov. 29. Applications close Oct. 3 and can be made here.
