  • Am I guaranteed a job at the end of my pilot training?

      You are not necessarily guaranteed a job at the end of your pilot training course. However, with an airline program before commencement of training you will be given a conditional offer of employment outlining the standard of your performance which must be met through your training for you to go into employment with the airline.
