From the proud moment of receiving my frozen ATPL, I spent over 6 years in pursuit of that elusive first airline job. I became a Flying Instructor for 4 years to bolster my CV but often felt that I was not getting closer to my goal.
Having faced disappointing outcomes from airline applications, I called KURA Aviation to find out where I was going wrong.
Isobel very helpfully spoke to me over the phone and even offered to look at my previous applications to advise me where the weaknesses were. No marketing, no hard selling, it was all about me. After visiting Isobel one Sunday afternoon, my decision was made.
The BESTPILOT course lasted for two months with the training delivered by current, experienced line pilots from various backgrounds; I was being educated with the most up-to-date industry information.
The team at KURA are excellent! Constantly providing honest feedback, Isobel and Philip really cared about our individual progress and, although I was part of a group, the process felt entirely personal and tailored towards me. By the end of it, I was far more knowledgeable and confident in my ability to pass airline assessments and interviews.
However, KURA’s support did not stop with training. At the end of the course, Isobel and Philip worked tirelessly to ensure that we were presented with airline opportunities. Six weeks after finishing my course I was interviewed by Titan Airways, successfully passed their selection process and was offered a First Officer position on the Airbus A320.
A few months later, flying back from Tenerife at night, I gazed out of the window over the moonlit Atlantic and it took a moment to realise that this was for real.
Thank you KURA!
