BA CityFlyer are breaking the industry mould by launching a unique First Officer recruitment campaign for pilots with 1000+ hours TT on aircraft under 10 tonnes.
The ‘First Officer Career Development Programme’ will break down traditional barriers to commercial airline employment for pilots with rotary or non-commercial aviation experience.
Partnering with KURA Aviation, the role of First Officer will be guaranteed subject to successful pilots satisfactorily meeting the standards required on a specifically tailored KURA BESTPILOT™ programme designed to transition the pilot smoothly into airline commercial operations.
Paul Nichols, Head of Flight Crew Resourcing Strategy at BA CityFlyer, said “We are delighted to be working with KURA Aviation in seeking experienced pilots and supporting their opportunity to grow their flying career with us.”
The cost of the training will be part funded by BA CityFlyer and successful candidates will be bonded to the airline for a period of 2 years.
“We are extremely proud to support BA CityFlyer in addressing their medium term resourcing requirements whilst offering a largely untapped sector of pilots an exclusive opportunity to transition into mainline employment”, said Isobel Hall, KURA Aviation CEO.
