We acknowledge that our message regarding the ceasing of the SA Express Cadet Pilot Training Programme at this time will disappoint candidates interested in the Cadet opportunities, however, the decision has been made on numerous internal and external factors which we believe warrants the temporary suspension of all courses. However, SA Express will continue to review future Cadet opportunities.

Candidates that meet the Direct Entry Junior First Officer requirements or the  Mach II CPL with ME IF requirements may send their CV to Pilot Recruitment/Cadet Manager, Senior First Officer Margot Venter at mventer@flyexpress.aero.

Online application forms will be made available for the Mach I and Mach II programmes when it is reinstated.

Keep watching this site for further information relating to future cadet pilot opportunities.
