The training center Aeromexico Formacion plans to receive a small group of 35 students.
According to its internal figures, about 850 new pilots graduated from different schools during 2018, however, what Aeromexico Formacion seeks is not quantity but quality.
Only three out of ten applicants seeking to study at the center, succeed, and much of the selection process has to do with the applicants’ attitude.
“When we ask young people why they want to be pilots and they answer that their main interest is to travel, we immediately discard them. We are looking for those who love aviation, “added Ernesto Garcia Tapia, CEO of Aeromexico Formacion.
A pilot degree in this training center amounts to US $ 70,000, lasts approximately one year and a half; students carry out the theoretical phase in Mexico, while internships have to be done at the facilities of the CAE, a specialized company in air simulators, in Seattle, United States.
