My love for flying started very young and soon became an obsession as I learnt more about it.
I first started to move towards a career in aviation by joining the Air Training Corps when I was 15. It was there I experienced my first flights and found a love for the technology behind it.
After my A levels and some time out due to an injury I enrolled on an integrated training course, seeing it as the fastest route to employment at the time. After two years I was fully qualified and began my hunt for my first airline job, unfortunately with little success. After almost two years of job hunting it was then I first came across Kura and their BESTPILOT training.
I soon learned that there was a massive difference in being a CPL/IR holder and a first officer in an airline. The family at Kura worked with me to fill these gaps and expand my knowledge base, improve my confidence in interviews and I was shown how to really show an airline that I am the perfect pilot to fly for them.
This all came into action when I was invited for an interview with Loganair soon after. And with the skills I now have as a BESTPILOT, I was offered a job on their Dornier 328 fleet. My type rating was made so much easier to work through thanks to my time with Kura and I will always know that my training with Ultimate High will keep me safe if I ever need it. Every time I’m sat on the flight deck I say to myself how amazing this really is and how I owe so much to Kura for making me the pilot I am today.
