Like many aspiring pilots I was unsuccessful at obtaining the increasingly elusive commercial flying role and I knew I needed to take another approach.
Ex-colleagues who had obtained jobs with Flybe and BA CityFlyer highly recommended KURA for their personal approach so I decided to contact them. KURA replied promptly and I was invited to visit the office to learn about what they could offer. Like my ex-colleagues I was thoroughly impressed by not only how professional Isobel and her team were, but also the personal, tailored approach that they took. With this and the known track record of others being successful in application to jobs, I didn’t hesitate to enrol on the KURA BESTPILOT programme.
Throughout the course I received excellent information and by the end I was in the best position I had ever been in to secure a flying role. My first opportunity for this came with BA CityFlyer. Having been supplied with so much information and knowledge from the instructors at KURA during the BESTPILOT programme, I felt confident and well prepared for interviews. I am immensely proud to say that I made it through the BA CityFlyer selection process and started employment at the end of September.
I could not recommend KURA enough to anybody who is looking for further help, guidance and knowledge while looking for employment. Not only do you learn about the roles and responsibilities of a pilot in today’s airlines, but you also learn a lot about yourself, with constant feedback from the KURA team to make you aware of how you can improve.
If I had to do it all again, I would have used KURA earlier, they certainly helped make achieving that first commercial flying role possible.
