From the flight deck of a British Airways aircraft, you will have the opportunity to place our customer's needs at the heart of your thinking and demonstrate the highest levels of professional expertise.

Becoming a commercial pilot is one of the most exciting and challenging careers you can choose. It's one reason why so many of the best pilots choose British Airways as their ultimate career destination. Another is the sheer variety to your working life, with a wide range of destinations and aircraft types – including the new Boeing 787 and Airbus A380,  which will enter service with us over the next three years.

We don’t just recruit talented pilots, we are looking for pilots who aspire to be Captains of the future.

We currently run two schemes, our Future Pilot programme, is designed to select and train aspiring pilots, who currently have little or no flying experience.

We also recruit British Airways Pilots through our Direct Entry Pilot Scheme. This scheme is available for those who already have flying expertise gained in the commercial industry.

We are pleased to announce the return of our Direct Entry Pilot Scheme (Managed Path - First Officer/UK Service Pilot) for experienced, high calibre Qualified Service Pilots of the Royal Air Force, Royal Navy, Royal Marines and Army Air Corps who want to develop their careers with one of the most progressive international airlines in the business.
