(Vancouver, B.C.) - Cathay Pacific has opened applications for its “I Can Fly” Toronto program, inviting young Canadians with a passion for aviation to participate in the popular program. Grade 11 and 12 high school students from the Greater Toronto area may submit an application online at www.cathaypacific.ca/icanfly on or before 12 September 2012.
The “I Can Fly” Toronto program will run from September through November and offer high school students a rare behind-the-scenes look at the airline industry. Staffed by Cathay Pacific staff volunteers, the 8-week academy covers a range of aviation topics and explores various careers in the industry from airport operations to in-flight catering to passenger sales. These real-world settings will provide invaluable perspective for students who will soon make choices about their future education and careers.
The “I Can Fly” program was launched in 2003 in Hong Kong and due to its success was brought to Canada for the first time in October 2009.
The program runs weekly and operates after school hours out of Toronto Pearson International Airport, its vicinity or within downtown Toronto. For further details or to apply for the “I Can Fly” Toronto program please visit www.cathaypacific.ca/icanfly.
