Future Pilot - Reach higher

Reach higher

Choosing to become a pilot is a life-changing decision as well as a huge financial commitment. Here at British Airways we believe in investing in the future, and that is why we have developed a unique programme to offer anyone with the right skills, passion and potential the chance to realise their dream of becoming an airline pilot.

We’re pleased to announce a further opportunity to apply for our flagship Future Pilot Programme, a sponsored pilot training scheme that is designed to select and train aspiring pilots, who currently have little or no flying experience. We’re seeking only the most able candidates with the determination to rise to the challenges of our comprehensive programme.

We will be opening the website for reading only on Thursday 24th October 2013. The website will be open for applications on Monday 11th November and it will close for applications at 23:59 on 28th November 2013. Please note if we receive an overwhelming number of applications we reserve the right to close the application window early. If we have to do this, however, we will make it clear on this page that we have taken that step and will email everyone who has started an application to give them 48 hours’ notice of applications closing.

Once you have successfully completed your training, you can look forward to continuing your journey with one of the world’s leading airlines and taking to the skies as a first officer with one of our London-based short haul fleets.

If you can see yourself expertly navigating one of our aircraft across the globe, delivering world-leading levels of safety, security, and customer service, then the Future Pilot Programme may be for you.

Please note this Programme will open for applications on the 11th November 2013, please click here to apply.
