UK-based charter and aircraft management operator Voluxis has introduced a new air crew apprentice scheme, the Voluxis Pilot Academy.

Senior commercial director Gavin Copus says: “We are looking to help aspiring pilots who may not be in the right financial position to fully fund themselves. And, it goes without saying, a passion for flying is a must. The aim is to build our own pilot talent, with candidates who are committed to the Voluxis brand and, while training, are a fully contributing member to our operations team.”

The programme length will be three years, where the successful candidate(s) would be starting at operations assistant level. Their career path would take in the role of operations controller and continue to the position of manager, by which time they would have a substantial training fund by way of an annual financial contribution.

Copus adds: “We believe we have created an appealing programme for aviation enthusiasts, that will build an internal pipeline of talent for our current and future aircraft while supporting the current needs of operations.”

Voluxis has bases at Farnborough and Biggin Hill airports in London, and currently has a diverse fleet of aircraft available for private charter including Bombardier, Embraer and Gulfstream types.
