Top three reasons to train with L3…
From the instant you submit your application to the moment you receive your graduation certificate, we are here to support you on your journey to becoming a Commercial Airline Pilot.
Nothing I’ve done matches it. It’s so challenging. Flying is a rapidly changing environment. And the exhilaration of being in total control as the aircraft lands or takes off is so exciting. The reality of controlling 60 tonnes of aircraft never gets old. I get a real buzz from it.
Yes! Training was intense. But definitely worth it. And I didn’t know what daily life looked like for pilots. Things can change, but generally, I fly six times a day. There’s also a misconception that low cost airlines are a lesser class for employees – but it’s not true of easyJet. The pay and standards are great.
Not really, easyJet have a great reputation for taking on young pilots, as the training is fantastic and the variety of destinations is a real pull. The challenge and opportunity to fly these routes isn’t matched anywhere else.
You need some academic success, and very good technical skills. Selection is important for you to show your leadership and decision-making skills. You also need to be flexible and take changes in your stride.
As a pilot, you first job is the hardest to get, but I now have my ideal base and a stable working pattern. Also, easyJet have lots of opportunities to become a captain in a short time frame, thanks to great training. I don’t want to move elsewhere.
Your first solo flight is the most exciting – looking at the empty seat where your instructor used to sit is amazing. I was also featured on an ITV documentary on my first commercial flight. They were big milestones for me.
Do you do any team building activities like the DoE awards, Cadets, Scouts, Guides, or other youth and volunteer work? These are always great to talk about in interviews.
Speak to pilots. Ask them about how they started out, and listen to their experiences and advice.
Think of ways to show your passion for becoming a pilot, and why you want to join easyJet specifically.
We’re looking for team players. So if you’re involved in sports, keep it up.
Speak to the CAA about any medical queries, and remember, don’t rule yourself out. Let the professionals decide.
Keep doing your research.
