Lise Lunding, Director of Training at OSM Aviation Group, said, “We are very pleased to launch our 2017 OSM Aviation Mentored Cadet Program in cooperation with European Pilot Selection and Training (EPST). EPST has undergone OSM Aviation’s compliance and best practice audit and qualified for training cadets to enter OSM Aviation and fly for one of our airline customers after graduating.”
“Through our partnership with EPST, we wish to ensure the continued availability of professional and well-trained pilots for our clients and their Boeing 737 fleet,” Lunding continued.
“This new Cadet program that EPST and OSM Aviation now offer to candidate pilots is the next step up,” explained Eric Duijkers, Managing Director at EPST. “This program will ensure the continued availability of highly trained professional pilots being delivered to OSM’s clients like Norwegian Airlines.”
Since 2016, EPST has been OSM Aviation’s partner in providing pilot selection services. OSM Aviation has selected EPST graduates to fly as First Officers for its largest client, Norwegian Airlines, and to date the companies say some 20 EPST graduates have found their way to the right seat of the B737 with Norwegian.
