IndiGo awards pilot training contract to New Zealand International Commercial Pilot Academy

IndiGo on July 1 announced that it has awarded a pilot training contract to the New Zealand International Commercial Pilot Academy (NZICPA).

The contract was given to NZICPA under the airline's flagship 'cadet pilot program', it said.

"The first group of students will begin the Wanganui, New Zealand based component of the cadet program in January 2020, where they will live in a campus environment," the low-cost carrier said in a statement.

Prior to moving to New Zealand, the applicants will be shortlisted through an "extensive pilot selection process" in India that will have its final approval, the airline said.
"After training in New Zealand, the cadets will return to India for flight license conversion of the New Zealand Commercial Pilot License and then proceed for Airbus A320 type rating training, before beginning line-training with IndiGo," the airline said.
The Indian license conversion part of the training will be conducted in partnership with Flightrule Aviation Services, a Delhi-based aviation training company, it added.
