CAE Oxford Aviation Academy (CAE OAA) is today hosting its largest ever graduation ceremony for 238 recent graduates of the APP First Officer, British Airways Future Pilot and easyJet MPL First Officer Programmes. The Oxford academy will welcome over 800 guests to the event including graduates’ families and friends, airline customers and training partners. Significantly, this ceremony will include the graduation of the very first course to enrol on the British Airways Future Pilot Programme (BA FPP) in Oxford. To mark this inaugural FPP graduation, BA’s Director of Flight Operations, Captain Stephen Riley will be joining as guest of honour for the proceedings.
Every year CAE Oxford Aviation Academy also presents a range of annual awards as part of the graduation ceremony. The awards recognize those students who have been exceptional during training and are chosen by the people who know them best throughout their time at CAE Oxford. This year a new award dedicated to the Future Pilot Programme will be added to the annual awards list. The award, known as ‘The Andy Watters British Airways Memorial Cup’, will be presented to the most outstanding BA FPP graduate being conferred on the evening. The recipient of this Award has been jointly chosen by the CAE OAA and British Airways training teams.
The Graduation ceremony will follow one of the largest open days that the Oxford Academy has ever held with over 650 attendees expected. This open day coincides with the launch of the much-anticipated third phase of enrolment on the British Airways FPP. SFO Lindsay Craig, Manager – Pilot Recruitment at British Airways, will speak to those in attendance briefing them on the latest round of the FPP.
