British Airways Longhaul Pilot Recruitment Seminar Dublin

Come and find out more about a Pilot Career at British Airways

Here at British Airways we are growing. More opportunities to join our pilot team are now present. We are continually introducing new aircraft including the Airbus A380 and revolutionary Boeing 787. We are actively recruiting now and for 2016 we envisage over 350 pilots joining the fraternity, with over half of these vacancies requiring direct entry onto our longhaul fleets.

We’re coming out to meet experienced pilots who are interested in finding out more about what we have to offer in what we hope will be a relaxed and informal setting. The events will be run by the BA pilot recruitment team, and a small team of line pilots who are keen to meet you and to talk about life as a pilot with us.

This roadshow will follow a different style to previously. There will be a rolling ‘drop in’ opportunity available during the day as well as two set presentation times. Depending on the number of people present at any one time we will answer queries individually or through a wider reaching presentation. We have planned presentations at 10:00 and 16:00 with a 2 hour lunchtime drop in session 12:00 – 14:00 for general questions. Please do come and join us. If you can please book for the session you wish to attend so that we can ensure we have sufficient people on hand to give you the personal service you deserve.

The presentations are aimed at experienced pilots including those who hold type ratings on any of the aircraft BA currently operates or has on order.

At this time, we are not seeking attendees who are low-hour or trainee pilots, but if you fall into one of these categories we’d be delighted to meet you at one of the other events we support including Pilot Careers Live, formerly the Flyer Professional Flight Training Exhibition.

We really look forward to meeting you. Don’t worry about dressing up for the occasion, we’ll be going for a smart casual approach to keep the event relaxed!
