The bond period for a local scholarship is 4 years. 3. As a scholar, will I be required to pursue an undergraduate course which is specified by CAAS? How will the undergraduate course determine my career options in future?

Upon graduation, scholars will serve their bond with CAAS as a Civil Aviation Officer and embark on a management career with a division of their choice. 4.

Opportunities for job rotation are available for all officers to gain exposure to the wide spectrum of aviation-related work.
