Being a pilot has been my dream from childhood. To make it real I took technical classes in high school and went straight into flight training with EPST and Oxford Aviation Academy.
After finishing flight training I had some interviews but was not able to get my first job. I felt the lack of reliable feedback hindered my ability to make significant improvements. Other pilots told me about Kura, and that the Kura team would be able to help me.
Unfortunately, I was unable to fully express myself well in the initial interview with Kura, but the good feedback helped me to identify the necessary improvements and I was able join the BESTPILOT program a short while later.
The program helped me develop a better understanding of what is required of a First Officer but, most of all, Kura enabled me to identify what an airline is looking for during selection and so improve my approach to the interview; allowing me to fully express my skills and qualities in an interview.
Within a month of becoming a BESTPILOT I was invited for an interview with Norwegian. The weekend before the interview I went to the Kura office and received help with my final preparation. My actual interview with the Norwegian recruitment team was great!
I am proud to fly for Norwegian and flying an actual Boeing after quite some time in the simulator is fantastic!
It took me quite some time and hard work but, with the Kura team helping me with the last mile, I was able to get that airline job; and it has been definitely worth all the effort!
