Will airline pilot training guarantee you a job?
will they select you?
We are currently experiencing a very good time for hiring pilots. The need to recruit pilots around the world amounts to 550,000 pilots for the next 20 years. This phenomenon is mainly explained by three factors.
First, the arrival of low-cost airlines in Europe is democratizing the way of travelling and allows many people to travel at a very attractive price.
Then we see an increase in air traffic in fast-growing continents like Africa and Asia. And finally, there is the replacement of retiring captains who only accentuate the need for pilot recruitment.
Even if the prospect of the future pilots seems very promising, it is still necessary to make sure to meet the requirements of the airlines to get a job.
Young European pilots all have the same EASA license. At first, nothing distinguishes them. Nevertheless, the airlines are particularly interested in immediately operational pilots and this is where the differences appear. This last element is purely the quality of the training.
A recent EASA European study shows that airlines complain about the lack of theoretical knowledge among young pilots. The examination system in the form of MCQ at the end of their theoretical training favors cramming instead of a thorough knowledge of the subject. Nevertheless, during the hiring tests, the difference between the candidates is felt on the knowledge acquired during the training and the capacity to restore the theoretical understanding.
The role of the instructor and his ability to pass on expertise in situation is crucial in the training. The quality of the pedagogy will allow the future pilot to progress serenely and to acquire the good aeronautical sense backed by good professional qualities.
The training that will meet the current needs of companies, will offer future drivers a very bright future and the prospect of a great career.
