The course covers many aspects from flight and cabin crew to air traffic controllers, airport management to aircraft engineering, aviation security to meteorology, emergency readiness to inflight catering, and more. Each participant is guided through an eight-month journey with a Dragonair pilot acting as their mentor. They get the opportunity to attend lectures, training sessions, briefings and tours hosted by industry partners to help them develop a solid foundation of aviation knowledge and a deeper understanding of the workings of the industry.
Over 30% of the 90 programme alumni have already embarked a career in the aviation industry, including working as air traffic controllers, aircraft engineers, flight attendants and pilots for Dragonair as well as sister airline Cathay Pacific.
