“Kura has, by far, been the best decision ever. I am forever proud to be a BESTPILOT!”
Bas Musters, Future Norwegian First Officer
As announced earlier this month, following an extensive audit of Kura C.I.C. and our partner suppliers, we were recently invited by OSM Aviation to present 21 individuals for airline interview for an opportunity to become Norwegian First Officers on the B737-800.
The interviews were held over 2 days and comprised airline interview and group exercise. We were over the moon to learn that 18 newly qualified BESTPILOTs will join the airline in September 2016 with 100% of our candidates successful on day 2 of the process; which is amazing!
Of the 66 pilots who have completed training with Kura to date; 64 have had airline interviews and 59 have received job offers. 3 individuals are currently looking forward to interview with Flybe in the next few weeks. The success we have achieved isn’t just great for the individuals concerned; we are essentially supporting training schools across the industry which is healthy; stimulating interest in the career through increased employment opportunity and importantly providing airlines with more choice and quality.
The Kura philosophy is based upon delivering an exceptional customer experience. We get to know our customers well; we personalise the training experience to meet their individual needs and they work with us to realise their enormous potential.
Bas writing we were the best decision is wonderful to read but the truth is our pilots made the best decision a long time before. That was the decision to train to become a commercial airline pilot. Kura has been privileged to work with our wonderful customers and help make their ambitions a reality.
