Etihad is not based out of Dubai. And unless your a UAE Citizen don't bother with the cadet program. You need a min of 500 hours on a type they fly with a type rating.

not true. They have an international student cadet program now. 18 months of training then u have a 6 or 8 year contract with the airline. They are based out of Abu Dhabi. I have no idea how good or bad the course is however. If i was starting training now i would seriously consider it.

They still haven't corrected the job info on their site. Only UAE are considered. Had a few guys I know apply and they were promptly rejected.
