Employment

The point of training to be a commercial pilot is to get a job; your training is just a means to that end. We get that, which is why this programme is all about getting you employment.

How do we do that? There are three features to help you.

First, the training is what the airlines are looking for. We select and develop your ‘pilot competencies’. Without boring you with technicalities, the airline industry realised some time ago that it takes more than great flying skills to make a great pilot. They have analysed what ‘good’ looks like and identified nine core competencies a successful pilot must exhibit. In addition to the ability to fly an aircraft manually and using automatic flight controls, these include communication, workload management, knowledge, leadership and teamwork, problem-solving and decision making, application of procedures, and situational awareness.

The final Multi-Crew Cooperation course is amongst the first in Europe to meet the higher Airline Pilot Standard, designed by the airline industry to prepare you for your first type rating.

“The Wings Alliance APC course really prepared me for my airline assessment and interview which resulted in me receiving 3 job offers. My total training cost was approx. £40,000.”

Second, we are aligned with airlines who take our graduates. Graduates have already found employment with Flybe, Thomas Cook Airlines, Loganair and Stobart.

Finally, you are at liberty to apply to airlines who are not directly associated with the programme, but whom we prepare you for. Jet2, Ryanair and many more airlines welcome applications from our graduates.

So far, we are glad to say that 100% of successful graduates have found employment with an airline. We do everything we can to help our graduates into employment… it clearly works.
