Our programmes are all about getting you employment
How do we do that?
All our courses are preceded by selection
This way we ensure that this is an appropriate choice for you and you make informed decisions before committing to significant time and expense. Read more about our selection process.
Our training is what the airlines are looking for
We select and develop your ‘pilot competencies’. The airline industry realised some time ago that it takes more than great flying skills to make a great pilot. They have analysed what ‘good’ looks like and identified nine core competencies a successful pilot must exhibit. In addition to the ability to fly an aircraft manually and using automatic flight controls, these include communication, workload management, knowledge, leadership and teamwork, problem-solving and decision making, application of procedures, and situational awareness. All modern airlines assess their pilots against these core competencies, and the exercises and sim checks in airline interviews are designed to do exactly the same thing.
You are assessed against these competencies during initial selection with the Wings Alliance. Where weaknesses are found we work with you and your trainers during your flying courses to build up your experience and skills. The final course before airline employment, the APS MCC, is not only a training course but is also used as a final assessment so that we can provide a complete competency-based report to the airlines you might apply to.
We will support you in preparing and applying to any airline recruiting that you are interested in working for
