To celebrate its launch of its Airline Ready Course (MCC/JOC), Wings Alliance is to offer two free course places to suitably qualified pilots. Wings Alliance, a new alliance of modular flight training providers, was launched at Pilot Careers Live London in November 2015.

The alliance is offering six aspiring pilots the opportunity to attend a free one-day selection course on Thursday 25 February at WA member Bristol Groundschool’s headquarters in Clevedon, North Somerset, UK. Two of these candidates will then be selected to attend a free three-week Airline Ready Course (ARC). If these students meet the required standard, they may then be recommended to a Wings Alliance partner airline.

Rod Wren, CEO of the Wings Alliance said, “We believe the Wings Alliance provides a unique opportunity that aspiring pilots have been waiting for; a cost effective and flexible high quality training route. As part of the launch of this course we are very excited to offer these free places on our first Wings Alliance selection day and for 2 of these 6 students to be selected to undertake for free our new three-week ‘Airline Ready Course’ (ARC).”

To be eligible to apply for a place on the Wings Alliance selection day, candidates must:

  • Have an EASA ME CPL/IR issued and current
  • Have the right to live and work in the EU
  • Hold a DBS certificate (or equivalent)
  • Be educated to GCSE level with 5 passes at A*- C including English and Maths (or equivalent)
  • ICAO Aviation English Language proficiency at level 4+
  • Have completed their CPL/ME/IR training with a Wings Alliance Member*
  • Be able to attend the selection day on the 25th February, and if selected be able to attend the 3-week Airline Ready Course from 11th- 29th April 2016 inclusive.

The selection course will consist of interviews and group exercises and students’ performance will be used to choose two of the candidates to go forward to the ARC course. The ARC itself consists of seven days of ground training covering: Crew Resource Management, Standard Operating Procedures and Pilot Competencies. This will be followed by a nine-day simulator course.

Training with the Wings Alliance aims to allow aspiring pilots to choose the most appropriate Flight Schools for their circumstances at every stage of their training, whilst providing them with a comprehensive training record which is invaluable for airline recruiters.
