Role and Responsibilities
ECFT is offering a unique opportunity to aspiring aviation students through its Support Crew Member (SCM) program. The program utilizes SCMs to meet the needs of our clients who train in aircraft simulators that require a crew compliment of at least two pilots. This opportunity gives the qualified candidate the chance to become trained by the industry leader on some of today's most sophisticated aircraft platforms in real world environments.
The SCM program is designed to train and qualify students to provide "right seat support" for our clients attending FAA, EASA, GCAA approved 14 CFR 142 and EASA ATO curriculum courses at our facilities.
The primary goal is to qualify these students to fulfill the "Pilot Monitoring" role under FAA part 61, 91, 135, EASA and GCAA training events. In addition to receiving formal aircraft Second in Command (SIC) simulator training for select aircraft types, the SCM will have the opportunity to attend, at no cost one of the many advanced programs and enrichment courses provided by CAE.
This program has launched many aviation careers since its inception. Having the opportunity to receive world-class training from an industry leader can give you the edge you need for your future and build the professional foundation companies and airlines are looking for in today's aviation environment.
Duration/ Training Bonds
Duration of the SCM Program is over a 2-year period. The cost of the type rating/ return on investment will have to be offset by a pre-determined number of support sessions carried by the SCM Candidate. This number of sessions that will have to be carried out for the 2-year program will be divided to 4 quarters. On a quarterly basis, a certain number of support sessions will be set as a threshold per quarter.
A SCM candidate must possess the following: (Only the candidates meetings ALL the below requirements will be contacted)
What does this program cost me?

Yes, the requirements of the program vary and range from days to nights and weekends. However, you will be required to be under Emirates CAE Flight Training visa and do your best to accommodate the schedules required by ECFT, to complete your support sessions required.
Will I be provided with training records and a certificate of completion?
