Dear Cadet Pilot candidate,

Jetairfly is a unique airline company to work for. We operate the latest technology aircraft, to various destinations all over the world. Jetairfly creates unique opportunities for pilots such as mixed fleet flying (e.g. B737/B767 on medium and long haul). We will be introducing the B787 in 2013 as we are the only Belgian customer of this type of ultra modern long range aircraft. We give our pilots computers (laptop or tablet) to communicate using high tech procedures.

But above all, we understand that people are the most important asset of an airline company. Our pilots are to be the best in the industry. Therefore, we invest, per pilot, more money and resources in training than any other airline, because we do not see pilot training as a “cost center”. We think pilot training is an important investment in our future. If you want to be part of the future, start here to join us.

Happy landings,

Capt Andre Berger F/I - TRI/TRE B737/B767 Director of Flight Operations Jetairfly

1.1 Jetairfly Cadet Pilot Program introduction

In 2011, the Jetairfly launches the Cadet Pilot Program to radically change ab initio pilot training.

The four parties that work together for the best possible pilot training are:

the pilot trainee

the flight school - our training partner

the Belgian authorities

the airline - Jetairfly

It is essential to have a firm commitment from all parties to build the best possible ab intio pilot training. Jetairfly decided to take the lead.

1.2 Why some pilot training programs don’t work

In a typical ab initio pilot training program, the trainee has to commit huge amounts of money (80.000€ - 100.000€), time and resources forself sponsored training. Finance by a state or a company is not available. The trainee has to choose a flight training organization (FTO), but has no cue how to choose one.

There is no commitment from the flight school that the pilot will be hired by an airline. As the school is probably not even linked to an airline, the flow of information going both ways is informal, not structured and sometimes even erratic.

There is no commitment from the trainee to study hard and become the best possible pilot. Trainees see themselves as “clients to be served” (in fact they “pay the bill”). Trainees are sometimes “buying” a license via extra training.

But a trainee who does not study very hard will never become a good pilot.

The airlines are not involved, there is no commitment from their part. And the authorities do not commit any financial resources to pilot training, it is taxed it instead.

Almost anyone in the industry realizes that this system does not provide airlines with highly qualified, skilled pilots who can guarantee safety, comfort and economy of flight.

More than once, young licensed pilots in this system are never hired. Their licenses expire and these (ex-)pilots have to look for a job elsewhere. Is this a “fair deal” towards these young men and women? We don’t think so.

1.3 Fair but firm commitments

At Jetairfly, we think the trainee should not pay all the bills and be the “client”. To do so, the commitment of all parties has to change, including ours.

This is how we plan to change the business. After a stringent pilot selection process, Jetairfly offers a number of trainees a cadet pilot contract. A trainee starts his career on the ground, still having to train for the required pilot licenses.

The commitment that Jetairfly gives is unique:

we give the cadet pilot an airline job from day one

we partially finance pilot training and make this training financially accessible to anyone with talent and skills, even if they only have small funds

we supervise, plan, guide and advise on pilot training

cadet pilots are given the opportunity to work at Jetairfly during the training, with Jetairfly pilots, ground personnel, training staff, and others

we train the cadet pilot on our own aircraft once they have the required skills and licenses, assuming we need pilots when they are ready. If not, cadet pilots will at least have an airline job (e.g. on the ground) while waiting to become a commercial airline pilot. The trainees will also remain current (licenses).

The commitment that our training partners give is unique:

a training program using Jetairfly standards, the highest in the industry

training methods applied (and copied) by Boeing, Airbus and other commercial airline manufacturers

newly designed and ultra-efficient flight briefing and debriefing methods

the best courseware

the best instructors and examiners available (they are not the “easiest” ones)

modern and safe training aircraft to train for the latest technology airline fleet in Belgium. Because that is what we operate at Jetairfly.

The commitment that the cadet pilot has to bring to this program is unique:

talent, skill, intelligence

the commitment to study and work very hard

ability to form an excellent team with other people

good communicator skills

positive attitude as a trainee, an employee and a pilot

firm commitment to do anything to become the best

Although the trainee has to commit some financial resources to finance the pilot training, the burden of the training costs is covered by a contract with Jetairfly. This makes pilot training accessible to anyone with the required skills and talent.

Pilot training is the only training in our country that receives no financial support. It would be fair to have the authorities share at least part of the financial burden. We and our partners continue to work to convince the authorities of the importance of supporting pilot training in creating employment with new high quality jobs.

Jetairfly launches the cadet pilot selection in June 2011 and will start contracting the first cadets in September 2011. The full course will take up to 4 years.

2.1 General

The Jetairfly Cadet Pilot Program is part of the airline training and introduces commercial jet flying operations from the start.

Training Partners and trainees are using audio visual systems, including a PC based Flight simulator with appropriate courseware and an airplane model similar to the training aircraft used. Terrain familiarization of the training area is required for VFR navigation and study the airport environment (via Google earth or similar program) is introduced.

Flight sessions are prepared and executed as follows:

- Class room briefing before each new training phase

- Self briefing and review by each trainee including electronic self preparation by flying the training session on PC and self study of the manuals

- Individual briefing with instructor

All flight session are recorded for playback after the flight:

- GPS track log of the flight (using a standard program such as Google Earth)

- Radio communications (MP3 format)

- Key exercises will be recorded on video camera for review

Instructor debriefing takes around 1h per flight session. Audio visual means (PC- Laptop) for playback is available. Then the trainee performs the following:

- Electronic debriefing review (including self review) of GPS log, video, RT

These recordings shall be added to the electronic student file.

2.2 Flight school equipment

Flight school equipment used for the cadet training program is monitored by Jetairfly.

The training partner operates:

Modern single engine aircraft for VFR and IFR training.

Modern twin engine aircraft for ME/IR training.

3 Training modules

3.1

Introduction

The modular route to a “frozen" ATPL and CPL-license with IR- and ME-class rating including MCC is chosen as it is the most cost-effective, flexible and practical method for the Jetairfly Cadet Pilot Program.

In cooperation with Jetairfly, the training partner developed modules listed below

The Private Pilot's Licence (PPL) and Night Rating

Ground School for the ATPL Theoretical Knowledge

The Instrument Rating (IR) Modular course

The Aerobatic course

Multi Engine course

The Commercial Pilot's Licence (CPL) Modular course

The Multi Crew Co-operation (MCC) Course

The integrated training concept will not be used for the Jetairfly cadet pilot training. Pilots, including those currently as employed student pilot within Jetairfly, must leave the integrated pilot training to become a Cadet Pilot. The training modules shall be taken in the order that they are listed above. In function of anticipated pilot requirements, the maximum delay between each module shall be 2 months, unless agreed with Jetairfly.

Courses shall start in September or October of each year. Jetairfly would like to enrol up to 10 cadet pilots.

3.1.1 The Private Pilot's Licence and night rating

The PPL requires a minimum of 45 hours flight training consisting of 35 hours dual construction and 10 hours of solo flying. The night rating comprises five additionnal hours flying training. There are also 120 hours or more ground study to pass written exams. This course is organized by the training partner but is also available within the Jetairfly RF.

At the end of the theoretical PPL training, a theoretical progress check using multiple choice question (may be or may not be from the PPL database) and open questions shall be organized to evaluate the Cadet pilot. At least 30% of the grading of the theoretical progress check shall be using open questions in English (and the answers must be in English). The use of the English language will be part of the grading process.

Page 3-10

8 Apr 2011

Version 1.1

The PPL course, including night rating, shall take a minimum of 6 months up to a maximum of one year.

3.1.2 Ground school ATPL theoretical knowledge

The theoretical knowledge examinations shall be taken at ATPL level.

There are 14 examinations covering subjects from Aviation Law to Meteorology. Jetairfly itself does not provide the ground school for these examinations, however we work in conjunction with our training partners who are widely known for offering the highest quality learning courses available. The course shall be taken in modules each incorporating a learning phase of one to maximum six months with several weeks of classroom.

The learning phase shall supported by a computer based training system with telephone and e-mail access to tutors.

Regularly, a theoretical progress check using multiple choice question (may be or may not be from the ATPL database) and open questions shall be organized to evaluate the Cadet pilot. At least 30% of the grading of each theoretical progress check shall be using open questions in English (and the answers must be in English). The use of the English language will be part of the grading process.

In addition to the JAR-FCL frozen ATPL course, Jetairfly provides a 5-day airline conversion course. This course is followed by an examination with multiple choice and open questions covering subjects in this course and the rest of the theoretical ATPL course.

The ATPL ground school shall take a minimum of 6 months up to a maximum of one year.

3.1.3 The Instrument Rating (IR) modular course

The aim of the Instrument Rating (IR) modular course is to train the cadet pilot to airline operational standard. That will also allow them to pass IR skill test and operate aeroplanes under instrument flight rules and in instrument meteorological conditions.

The IR module consists of flying training in the aircraft and the FNPTII for the synthetic portion of the training. The FNPTII is a realistic synthetic training device (STD) with visuals, EASA (or BCAA) authorized to use for training towards the IR module.

There is no Air Traffic Control in a simulator, but instructors use realistic ATC procedures during all but initial training sessions. In a more advanced stage, the FNPTII shall be used to create turbulence, wind shear, icing and non-normal procedures requiring the use of the non-normal checklist in the safety of a simulated

environment. All FNPTII sessions shall be recorded and be part of the file of the cadet pilot.

The FNPTII training and the final FNPTII check includes Loft-like scenarios, including realistic weather, ATC, timing and emergency procedures

All IR flight training is preceded by similar exercises in the FNPTII.

The IR training fulfils the EASA FCL requirements with special emphasis on operational procedures. Jetairfly cadet pilots will be familiar with:

Circling approaches (including timing and missed approach

Visual approach under IFR

Side step approach

RNAV transitions

ASR approach

GCA approach (!)

PRNAV if the training aircraft is equipped to do so

At least 15 hours of IR training will be overland flights, with cruise at or above FL60, covering at least 6 different airfields, including EBBR and 2 airfields outside the Belgian FIR.

At the end of the IR module and before the IR skill test, a dedicated Jetairfly written test covering instrument flying procedures is administered.

The IR modular course takes a minimum of 6 months up to a maximum of one and a halve year.

3.1.4 Special Aerobatic course

The aim of the special aerobatic course is to train the cadet pilot to the standard defined by Jetairfly for basic aerobatics. This also enables them to pass the aerobatic skill test administered by a Jetairfly aerobatic examiner. The test can be taken from the ground (student flying solo) or with the examiner on board. Cadet pilots may be flying at least a part of the aerobatic training solo.

The module consists of unusual attitude training in general including basic aerobatic manoeuvres. The training is carried out in a single engine aerobatic aircraft certified to aerobatic category. The flight time is minimum 5h to maximum 15h plus 1hr check.

Trainees are given a training in accordance with Jetairfly requirements. These include the ability to fly:

2-turn spin with exit recovery in the entry axis within 10°

looping

aileron roll

The duration of the aerobatic course is minimum 2 to maximum 4 weeks. The aerobatic module and aerobatic skill test is completed before the CPL module.

3.1.5 The Multi Engine rating (ME/IR) modular course

The aim of the Multi Engine modular course is to train the cadet pilot to airline operational standard. That will also allow the trainee to pass ME/IR skill test and operate multi engine aeroplanes in instrument meteorological conditions.

The ME/IR module consists of flying training in the aircraft and a FNPTII for the synthetic portion of the training.

The IR training fulfils the EASA FCL requirements with special emphasis on operational procedures. Jetairfly cadet pilots must also be familiar with:

a single engine diversion followed by a non precision approach at the alternate airport

knowledge of commercial aircraft operations (take off alternate, approach and landing climb gradients, engine failure procedures, engine failure in cruise, engine failure on final, engine failure during take off below VMCG, V1 concept, improved climb concept)

At the end of the ME module and before the ME/IR skill test, a dedicated Jetairfly written test covering multi engine and commercial jet performance is administered.

The ME modular course takes a minimum of 4 weeks up to a maximum of 10 weeks.

3.1.6 The CPL modular course

The aim of the CPL modular course is to train the cadet pilot to the standard of a Jetairfly commercial pilot. This also enables them to pass the skill test for the Commercial Pilot's Licence.

The module consists of flying training in general handling, instrument flying and navigation. The majority of the training is carried out in a single engine aircraft, but at least five hours plus the skill test may be carried out in a complex aircraft having a variable pitch propeller, certified for at least four people, and retractable landing gear.

Trainees are given a training in accordance with EU-FCL requirements.

The duration of the course is minimum 4 to maximum 8 weeks.

3.1.7 The Multi-Crew Cooperation course (MCC)

The multi-crew cooperation course is designed to introduce pilots to the different techniques required when flying multi crew aircraft and is an EASA requirement. This course can be provided by the training partner or in the TUIfly Academy Brussels TRTO (which is part of Jetairfly).

The MCC takes a minimum of 3 weeks up to a maximum of 10 weeks.

3.1.8 Recurrent training

The training partner provides a 6 monthly recurrent program for pilots, who, after completing their training, can not be enrolled immediately as commercial pilot at Jetairfly.

This recurrent takes 1 week and will not include ME, it consists of:

Theoretical refresher of at least one day

FNPTII recurrent training (at least 4h)

Aircraft recurrent training (at least 3h)

Recurrent check to maintain SE/IR ratings

Before starting type rating training at TUIfly Academy Brussels, training partners provide a training plan to reactivate the ME qualification of a cadet pilot.

4 Other differentiators

4.1 Training uniform

During all training and checking (theoretical and flight training) Jetairfly pilot cadets will wear the Jetairfly Cadet Pilot uniform, with flat shoes with anti skid bottom. They avoid to wear nylon clothing to reduce risks in case of fire.

Cadet Pilots shall bring with them on every flight:

Sunglasses (high protection factor, no distortions)

Headset (private)

2 correction glasses if the medical certificate requires this – note “VNL”

4.2 Use of simulators

Cadet pilots use a PC flight simulator during training. Trainees shall alo use more sophisticated devices to simulate flight.

Simulators shall be used to learn:

Setups and checklists

Instrument scan technique

Systems (if the systems are modeled accurately)

CRM trainer (communication, crew coordination, …)

Application of pitch-power table (although many err in this respect)

Visual navigation (if the area is modeled correctly), including wind corrections

Instrument navigation

Non-normal procedures that are dangerous in real life

On a PC flight simulator, a pilot can learn most of these things. He can even learn how to set attitude and power if the flight model is accurate. But it will never learn a pilot how to fly a real aircraft, how to control the aircraft, even less how to feel what it does.

Trainees shall not use PC simulators to play around doing what they want. Every session has training targets, such as preparing the next flight exercises.

4.3 Use of flight briefings

The FTO training partner defined “long briefings” for all practical training exercises.

Audio visual means, e.g. video footage, is being developed by the FTO training partner for all flight training manoeuvres.
