This course will include a theoretical module, and the two most outstanding cadets will have the unique opportunity to receive training in the Boeing flight simulator located in Miami. Subsequently, they will be eligible to apply for positions as first officers with the airline.

Victor Pacheco, CEO and founder of Arajet, expressed the airline’s commitment to nurturing Dominican aviation in all aspects. He emphasized the importance of having highly trained pilots who are native to the country, thereby ensuring that they become world-class professionals.

Pacheco also highlighted that these actions underline Arajet’s dedication to creating employment opportunities for Dominican talent and equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to contribute to the growth of the aviation sector in the nation.

Arajet has specified the eligibility requirements for candidates interested in applying for the Pilot Cadet Program. Applicants must be Dominican citizens of legal age, possess a commercial pilot’s license, and have a minimum of 250 hours of flight experience, including dual aircraft motor or multi-motor experience.
