In association with

Flight Crew Futures: a fresh approach to career opportunities for experienced and new pilots



Hilton London Gatwick Airport
Gatwick Airport (LGW),
South Terminal,

Airlines are continuing to expand their fleets and this, together with indications of a global shortage of pilots, means that there’s never been a better time for experienced, low-hour and recently qualified candidates who are seeking genuine career opportunities.

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.

Meet directly with pilot recruiters

Visiting pilots will get the chance to meet directly with recruiters in a single venue – this is a unique opportunity to get all the facts, career advice and answers in an informal environment.

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.

Entry to Flight Crew Futures is FREE. Simply complete the online registration to let us know that you’re attending.
