After I had gained my commercial pilots license a large part of me felt that I still was not yet ready to find that dream airline job.
With little experience in aviation and a massive lack of industry knowledge I knew that my flying skills were not enough to guide me through to an interview comfortably. I then came across KURA, a new company that offered a programme to help people such as myself with not only a better insight to the industry with the team of experienced pilots, but the fundamentals of being a pilot which before KURA I didn’t know how important and helpful they are. Immediately after I started the pilots fundamentals week the knowledge I gained was amazing.
It allowed me to become a more rounded pilot, not only with better interpersonal skills but the ability to be more comfortable with competencies such as team working, problem solving, decision making and many more. The interview preparation week was key to finding me my dream job. With what KURA had taught me I felt more than ready for my interview. I walked in with confidence and knew that I had all areas covered and couldn’t have done anymore.
I know looking back that if I did not find KURA my situation would have been a lot different and certainly more difficult for myself. The depth of learning and understanding that KURA provide is truly second to none. The whole team are not only some of the nicest people I have met, but they put so much time and effort into each individual that they train. With KURA I have found a new path in instructing that I want to follow alongside flying, to help others that are in the same situation that I have been.
KURA have given me the confidence to do this. It has been a privilege to be part of the BESTPILOT scheme and has truly set me up for my career as an airline pilot and I am truly thankful to the whole team.
