Industry Insight

You can discover everything a career in aviation entails

Training to be a pilot is a unique learning experience: character-building, complex and challenging. The training demands high levels of self-discipline and determination, across a variety of physiological and practical skill-sets. But success will reward those who meet the required high standards, with a well-respected, exciting and fulfilling career. Ask any professional pilot and they will tell you… despite the early morning starts in the depths of winter, delayed flight schedules and irregular work patterns, they would not change their career for any other.


You can find out about training options, fees and requirements

There’s plenty of info here on Pilot Careers News about pilot training but there’s nothing to beat meeting the representatives of the flight schools face to face. Often there’ll be pilots in training or just qualified on the exhibitors’ stands for you to talk to, and work out the best training route for you. They’ll be able to confirm costs, time scales, pre-entry requirements and much more. It’s the place to get questions answered!


You will enjoy engaging, essential seminars and talks

At each Pilot Careers Live event we hold a series of seminars during the day in a purpose-built auditorium. The speakers will be respected experts in their field and they will talk concisely on a subject of interest to you. Previous seminars have covered the Class 1 Medical, Assessment Tests, What Airline Recruiters Are Looking For, What Military Pilot Recuiters Are Looking For, Finding Funding For Training and much more.

Sofitel London Heathrow T5

Join us at Heathrow, just a few minutes walk from Terminal 5.

We recommend public transport to avoid traffic and parking charges. T5 is served by the Piccadilly Line, the Heathrow Express and various buses. Full details can be found at:

Parking: Parking spaces at the Sofitel are extremely limited, and parking charges apply. This is £16 per eight hours. This rate is only available once your ticket is validated by the hotel and must only be done as you leave at the main hotel reception desk. Once the venue’s car park is full, you will be directed to park at one of Heathrow’s Long Term or Short Term car parks (estimated cost £20-£40).

“My visit to PCL gave me all I needed to help me decide how to become a pilot. I am really grateful to the team at PCL and the exhibitors for their time.” Visitor - London November 2022
