The SOAR program continues to grow with the addition of Brampton Flight Centre (BFC) to its flight school program. This new partnership provides a career pathway for flight instructors at BFC to become First Officers with us.
“We’ve maintained a close relationship with BFC over the years, adopting hiring initiatives which have served both companies well. The addition of this program is yet another way for us to foster career progression from flight school to airline,” said Scott Peters, Air Georgian’s Corporate Training Manager and Chief Instructor.
“The Brampton Flight Centre is delighted to announce our partnership with Air Georgian as part of their new SOAR Program. This program aims to attract the best and brightest candidates to work as flight instructors before transitioning to Air Georgian. Also, it creates a first-rate pool of potential airline pilots for Air Georgian. This makes BFC an exemplary employment opportunity for anyone looking to enter the aviation industry. This agreement enables growth for both Air Georgian and the Brampton Flight Centre in the years to come.” said Scott Chayko, BFC’s Chief Flight Instructor.
SOAR (Sharing Opportunities for Advancement and Reward) looks to:
- Creates awareness of careers in our industry;
- Recruits from flight schools and 703/704 operators; while also
- Providing career fulfilment and advancement opportunities for employees.
SOAR is open to all Air Transportation Association of Canada (ATAC) member partners and is designed to provide partners with highly predictable, timed attrition with greater notice periods. Additionally, this enhanced visibility helps employers with their hiring planning and gives future Air Georgian employees confidence in a career pathway into the Air Canada system.
SOAR officially launches in November 2017, but BFC is one of many ATAC member partners that have already enrolled.
