Widerøe and SAS are both major stakeholders in the Scandinavian aviation industry, and both companies have expressed intent for cooperation with Pilot Flight Academy (PFA) to create future cadet programmes where students from PFA would get the opportunity for employment in one of the companies immediately following completion of training with us and following a recruitment process with either Widerøe or SAS.

Widerøe and SAS have as of yet not indicated a date of commencement, however, as soon as we know more we will update the information on our webpage.



To start your education at Pilot Flight Academy, you must:

• Have graduated from secondary school (Higher Education Entrance Qualification), passed an apprenticeship examination, or be over 23 years of age*

*An applicant who has not graduated from secondary school/achieved a higher education entrance qualification must be 23 years of age or older in the year of admission to be considered based on prior learning and work experience.

**If you are between 150-160 cm or 190-200 cm, you must visit Pilot Flight Academy to do a sit-in test in our aircraft.

International students must have a valid student visa for Norway or be eligible for obtaining a visa. More information about this can be found at

Employers within the aviation industry will require a certificate of good conduct from the police. If you have any questions regarding this, contact the Norwegian CAA.

Once you have passed the admission test you are eligible to apply to Pilot Flight Academy.
