British Airways is Recruiting Pilots For London City Airport
British Airways is currently recruiting new pilots for its expanding fleet of Embraer jet aircraft based at London City Airport.
An ambitious recruitment programme is launched this month to find both direct entry captains and first officers to join BA CityFlyer, the wholly owned British Airways’ subsidiary that operates from the Docklands airport to more than 30 business and leisure destinations across Europe.
The new recruits will join over 200 existing pilots who currently fly the fleet of 20 Embraer 170 and Embraer 190 jet aircraft based at London City Airport.
The recruitment drive is being launched on September 19 with a roadshow at The Heathrow Hotel Bath Road, close to Heathrow Airport, hosted by the BA CityFlyer Pilot Management team.
Captain Dave Cox, head of crew training and Captain Steve Cook, head of flight operations, will be on hand with representatives from rostering and HR teams to discuss the airline, career, lifestyle, selection and application process.
The event is aimed at experienced pilots with existing commercial or military experience.
All BA CityFlyer pilots are supported in their career progression with the opportunity to apply to British Airways mainline following a minimum of two years service and subject to vacancies being available.
