The Jobseekers’ Support Team
A group of pilots which is often forgotten and not well represented are in no doubt student pilots and jobseekers. As the economic situation improved, airlines slowly start to recruit ab initio pilots again. Given that obtaining the first pilot job is considered a major hurdle for all graduated ATPL students, BeCA is faced with an increasing demand for advice, information and support for this growing group of pilots. The executive committee decided to review the category of jobseekers and student pilots and reopened the Jobseekers’ support team in 2014.
This group of BeCA members comes together regularly and addresses the needs of the next generation of pilots. This group covers different aspects:
- Theory rehearsal sessions
- Airline selection preparation (CV & interviews)
- Simulator provisioning
