Torres Strait Air – Cadet Pilot Program

Delivered in Partnership with Aviation Australia

The Torres Strait Air Cadet Pilot Program gives you the skills, qualifications and experience required to launch your aviation career.

Torres Strait Air is a locally owned air charter company serving the vital air transport needs of the Torres Strait community with a well-resourced and experienced team of air charter professionals.

Boasting a current fleet of fourteen aircraft, supported by highly experienced maintenance and operational personnel on Horn Island, Cairns and Brisbane, they have set new standards of service and safety for flying in the Torres Strait.

This unique cadet program sees students completing the last module of training for their Commercial Pilot Licence on Horn Island in Torres Strait Air’s Cessna 206 aircraft, flying company routes utilising scenario based training to ensure they are not only qualified but are genuinely industry ready.

The Instrument Rating is then completed before you are checked to line and begin work, ready to amass that all needed experience on the C206 and then  the Torres Strait Air 10 seat Britten-Norman Islander aircraft.

The Double Diploma courses are completed over an 18-month period after which the Cadets will now be employed by Torres Strait Air for a period of up to 18 months based on Horn Island.
