Kenya Airways seeks to recruit trainee pilots to man its growing aircraft fleet, which is meant to grow to 119 by 2021.

The airline has announced plans to recruit training pilots in the next 10 months that will then be absorbed by the airline.

The airline will take graduates from different backgrounds and train them from scratch to the point where they acquire commercial pilot’s license.

The training includes sending them to flight schools.

Applications are therefore invited for the Ab Initio Pilot Trainee Positions.
