Left and Right seat opportunities

Flight Crew Futures partners pilots attending the event with airlines and recruiting agencies which are seeking to recruit experienced, low-hour and recently qualified candidates who meet their requirements.

Informative presentations throughout the day

Flight Crew Futures’ drop-in format will also include presentations from recruiters throughout the day, allowing pilots who attend to get a comprehensive overview of their current flight crew requirements, salary packages and employment terms. The presentation programme will also include several presentations by BALPA on topics relevant to today’s pilots.
