I decided to become a pilot when I was about 15 years old. I had loved flying before that, because my father has a PPL, but I decided to make it my career after I watched a video which my father recorded on the flight deck of a B737. I was sold!
I was really impressed by all the buttons, of course, and the idea of operating such a large machine, but what really interested me was that every day in the job is different; so much daily diversity in the routes, the weather, passengers, other traffic, ATC and many other factors.
After successfully completing my integrated course I was unable to find an airline job. Then I heard about Kura. The BESTPILOT programme helped me become more confident; in myself and in my performance in an interview. I now know what to expect and what an airline expects of me, both in and outside of the interview. I really benefitted from all doing all the practice interview questions.
To get a First Officer position at Flybe means the world to me. I waited more than five years for this dream to come true and Kura Aviation did it! I have just passed my type rating and will start my line training soon. So far I love the variety, the responsibility and most of all the feeling of operating the aircraft on final approach or bursting through the clouds!
Thanks Kura, you really helped me make my dream finally come true.
