We’re Looking for Someone to Join the FII Team

We’re looking for a new writer to join the Flying In Ireland team. The website is almost 17 years old and we’d like someone new to join the team to help expand the number of articles we publish. The website covers anything in aviation with an Irish connection in categories such as industry, airlines, airports, general aviation, military and features. This is a great opportunity for an enthusiastic new team member to join the team and help to further their career in the aviation industry. In the course of your work, you’ll get to meet lots of people from the industry as well as go to aviation events as an FII Accredited Representative. If you’re interested, send us an email to with a short introduction and tell us why you’d like to join our team.


Is this a paid position?

No it’s not but we’ll give you your own address and you’ll be able to get press access to many future events. It’s also a great opportunity to meet people in the industry that could help further your career.

How many articles do I need to write?

We’re aiming for about 3/4 article per week but of course that will vary and we understand it needs to fit around your existing commitments

What types of articles will I be writing?

That’s down to you but we’ll be able to give you plenty of guidance. The website covers industry, airlines, airports, general aviation, military and features. That’s a huge area but if there’s a certain area you enjoy writing about we’re happy to let you do that. We have lots of material to get you started but the existing team don’t have the time to get through it all!
