WHAT IS
Vueling Cadet Program?

The Vueling cadet program is a self-sponsored course designed for cadets with little or no flight experience to prepare them for joining Vueling as First Officers. Upon passing the assessment carried out by BAA Training and an interview with the airline, you will receive a letter of engagement from Vueling. It means the carrier commits to hiring you after you complete the study program successfully.

"We are committed to providing the best training within the BAA Training-Vueling cadet program. Our future pilots will develop technical and non-technical skills while being guaranteed the safety of the air operation by the Vueling company," says Alberto Hernández Guerrero, Vueling Training Director.
