Cadet profile
Ryan Clyde

Easyjet First Officer

  • What’s being a pilot like?

    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.

  • Any surprises along the way?

    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.

  • Did any other commercial airlines stand out?

    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.

  • Who makes a great pilot?

    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.

  • Plans for the future?

    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.

  • Any main highlights?

    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.

It’s time to start getting your wings.

And getting your skates on, too.
