Career Progression Program

Progresssion Program

GFT's Career Progression Program is designed spesfically for students at GFT. This program provides you, the student, an opportunity to advance directly to an airline or charter/medevac operation. Once you begin your student career at GFT all these doors will open to you. GFT has already promoted many people to these positions. Check out our News section to see some of those who have progressed through this program.

The outline below is just that, an outline. GFT has promoted Instructors to our airline division in as little as one month. It will depend largely on the demand and the availability of Instructors.

Career Progression

GFT is fortunate that its sister company EVAS Air is a seasoned Tier Three Carrier for Air Canada, operates a schedule cargo run, established in the charter and medical evacuation market.

Once you complete a Commercial Pilot License GFT will encourage you to become a Flight Instructor at GFT. Provided you illustrate the determination, hard work and drive to succeed and successfully complete the Instructor Rating at GFT you could become a part of the GFT Instructing team.

As a GFT Flight Instructor you will be paid to teach others while building your flight time and experience. As your experience level increases and First Officer Positions become available of one of our larger aircraft such as a Beech 1900D you will be eligible for these positions. GFT hires their students and Instructors before advertising outside.

If flight Instructing is not for you, then GFT will encourage you stay at GFT and become a flight Follower. This position will provide you with much experience with Airline Operations, specifically EVAS Air. Flight Followers are also a part of GFT's Career Progression Program.

If none of the above suits your needs then rest assured, as a GFT student or former student you will be considered for an Airline Position before EVAS has to hire outside the company.

GFT has already promoted many people to these positions, you could be next.

All applicants applying for any program/licence must submit a Criminal Code of Conduct and Vulnerable Sector Screening check. Contact your local RCMP office for more information.

Applicants for all programs must be able to obtain a passport.
