The career path of a commercial airline pilot
During our childhoods, many of us aspired to be a pilot when we were older, but what does the qualification process actually include?
We are delighted to announce a new strategic partnership between McGinley Aviation & pilot training experts Airways Aviation.
The partnership is designed to supply airlines with a steady stream of aviation talent through both existing workforces as well as new candidates in training.
Liz Cusack, Director of McGinley Aviation said: “The great thing about our partnership is that it stands to benefit everyone - McGinley Aviation, Airways Aviation, and our end customer - both the airline and in Airways Aviation’s case, the student pilot.”
Ian Cooper, CEO of Airways Aviation said: “Everything that Airways Aviation does is about serving our airline customer and has to be first class. We saw the same approach in McGinley Aviation. This will compliment both the organisation's global portfolio and further demonstrate our commitment to our customers."
McGinley Aviation has seen excellent growth in the pilot sector within the last 18 months – with the creation of new global contracts with some of the world’s largest airlines.
Airways Aviation has also enjoyed rapid growth, and with the launch of its industry leading ‘Elite Pathways Programme’, is now considered as a leading global aviation educator.
‘Joining forces’ will not only strengthen the existing relationships with global airlines, but will also attract new business through their mutual network of contacts. And with many job opportunities now becoming available through McGinley Aviation upon graduation, this new business partnership will most certainly interest new pilots in training.
McGinley Aviation is recognised as a leading provider of global aviation recruitment solutions. With a highly-skilled and well established aviation recruitment team, McGinley Aviation are specialists at assigning aviation professionals to temporary and contract roles, as well as permanent aviation jobs around the world.
