Pilot recruitment

Will airline pilot training guarantee you a job?

Why airlines
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.

 The job of pilot is in English and a very good knowledge of the language of Shakespeare is a prerequisite for hiring. It therefore seems essential that the training be done in English in order to become familiar with learning with the aeronautical language.

 

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.

In addition, candidates who have evolved in a complex and international airspace during their training and thus face many and varied situations, have a significant advantage for their future airline. This experience is an undeniable asset in terms of saving time to become quickly operational.

 

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. 

It should be noted that aeronautics technologies are evolving rapidly and the training challenges for companies are becoming a priority. It is for this reason that it is desirable to have instructors who are always active or in contact with the companies.

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.
