BALPA welcomes the new TUI pilot cadet scheme

BALPA has welcomed the new TUI pilot cadet scheme with General Secretary Martin Chalk commenting:

“BALPA applauds the efforts of TUI UK to address the potential weaknesses in the MPL route into our profession, and wholeheartedly supports the active intention to broaden the backgrounds of candidates becoming professional pilots.

“The best indicators of future ‘star aviators’ are aptitude to learn the skills required and professional determination – not access to six figure sums of money, or gender, religion, or cultural heritage.

“BALPA wishes TUI and all the candidates they select the very best with this scheme and looks forward to working with them all.”
