Career prospects
CESDA has agreements with VUELING and OSM Aviation - NORWEGIAN

The agreement with VUELING establishes that in the selection processes of the company, there will be a preferential contract for the graduates of CESDA due to the high quality of the training processes.

The agreement with OSM Aviation - Norwegina states that when Norwegian needs low-experienced pilots it will ask CESDA as a high-quality school to provide graduates.

  • The level of professional employment among CESDA graduates in the aviation sector is 80%.
  • This rate increases to 92% for graduates that are among the 50% with the best academic record.

Those are excellent figures.However, our efforts are focused on improving them, reducing the average time our graduates take to find their first job and helping our pilots to find the best contracts.

Our Careers Department provides support for students graduating from CESDA to help them join the professional world.

This department is responsible for conducting market research, establishing relationships with the various agents in the air industry including government institutions, companies, airlines, professionals, etc., and maintaining constant communication and close links with the community of CESDA graduate pilots.

The Careers Department coordinates the 'CESDA Alumni' professional group, containing commercial pilots who have graduated from the centre, to exchange information and share professional experiences.

All studies forecasting growth in the air transport sector suggest that it will double over the next 20 years. It will be necessary to employ 500,000 new pilots worldwide during this period.

Why CESDA

CESDA

 

Introduction
Commercial Aviation Pilot and Air Operations Degree

The Commercial Aviation Pilot and Air Operations Degree is an official degree course in the European Higher Education Area which was approved in 2010. It trains professional pilots to help them meet the strict demands of the aviation labour market, by obtaining the EASA European Civil Aviation Pilot license with all the necessary categories up to "ATPL Frozen" level.

Obtaining our degree allows our graduates to work for any airline, and also provides access to the public aviation sector, as well as some professions related to the air transport sector that require a public examination process or a license for which an official university degree is essential.

At CESDA you will obtain the internationally recognised EASA license, and a university degree for a whole career.

In-flight training

CESDA has a modern fleet of aircraft suitable for the different phases of flight, to provide appropriate instruction for its in-flight training subjects. The training is complemented with FNPT II and MCC flight simulators.

  • On the Flight training I course, students make single-engine aircraft flights (SE) under visual flight rules (VFR).
  • On the Flight training II course, they move on to real and simulated single-engine and multi-engine (ME) flights under instrument flight rules (IFR).
  • On the Flight training III course, students make real and simulated commercial operations multi-engine flights.

When they have completed their studies, students will have flown a total of 285 flight hours, of which 171 are real flights, 54 hours are in a basic simulator and 60 hours are in a Multi Crew Coordination simulator (MCC).

The campus
An exceptional airport and facilities

CESDA's facilities are located on the Reus Aeronautical university campus, with an approximate area of 80,000 m² next to the Reus International Airport.

This airport is extremely safe because of its very long runway, its location far from mountains and obstacles, all the radio aids for instrumental navigation and its international traffic, which helps students to learn how airline aviation operates. The area has its own microclimate, which is highly suitable for regular and continuous practice flights.

CESDA's University facilities are located on the Reus Aeronautical Campus.

Furthermore, the city of Reus, near the campus, is located in a powerful hub of economic and social development, which has an important and very dynamic university environment and a truly enriching cultural life. The excellent transport links for Reus and the surrounding area by land, sea and air have placed the region in an optimum location at the centre of the Mediterranean Corridor.

Students at CESDA have two accommodation options: in flats and student residences. You can find more information here.
