British Airways will be one of several industry experts giving a presentation at the next Pilot Careers Live event, being held at the Sofitel Hotel, Terminal 5, London Heathrow Airport on Saturday, 9 April. Tickets for the event are now on sale at the link below.
More than 25 exhibitors will be attending Pilot Careers Live. Doors open from 09:00 – 17:00 and, like last November’s event, it will be held in two sessions, morning and afternoon.
Many of the UK’s and Europe’s leading training providers, known as Approved Training Organisations (ATO), will be there to answer questions on what it takes to be a professional pilot and to show off their facilities.
Among other exhibitors, the Royal Air Force will showcase careers as a pilot and also beyond the flightdeck. If you thinking about training as a helicopter pilot, there are also experts to help navigate a career path working offshore or on Search & Rescue operations.
Before taking any pilot training, you need to know if you can pass the required medical examination – find out all about this from our expert.
The seminars will be the same in both sessions, morning and afternoon. If you happen to miss a presentation, don’t worry! They will all be recorded and available afterwards to view on catch-up.
