Pilot jobs guide

Pilot jobs guide

Pilot jobs are one hell of a gig to swing. Between the draw of travelling the world and taking on great responsibility, there’s plenty for the studious, academic, careful and adventurous types to really get their teeth into.


Pilot jobs are one hell of a gig to swing. Between the draw of travelling the world and taking on great responsibility, there’s plenty for the studious, academic, careful and adventurous types to really get their teeth into.

Options for types of pilot job really vary. It all depends on your specialties and experience, as well as the myriad of licences that you can opt to study for. You might work for commercial airlines, private employers, ferrying new aircraft, cargo flights, or as an EMR pilot for medical runs.


Day-to-day work involves pre-flight checks and post-flight records, fuel calculation, safety checks, welcoming passengers, and flying the plane as part of a pair of pilots. You need to be really on-the-ball at all times, and very able to respond to sudden environmental changes - whether that’s an incoming storm, frustrated passengers or communication issues with ground control.

Getting into the industry

The bare minimum for starting on your pilot career path is good GCSEs and some decent A Levels, including Physics. Like any job that comes with responsibility, you must have at least C grades in your English and Maths GCSEs. Technically speaking, you don’t have to have an aviation degree but, if you’re serious about this as a career path, it’s probably a good idea to demonstrate to your employer that you have a full range of understanding in the area, as well as taking the opportunity to learn the theory and get the practical hours before getting in the cockpit.

Now, it’s time to acquire your licences! There are many, many, many licences to be had, and there are far too many to start to list here. The correct licences for you will depend on the type of pilot you want to be, so be absolutely sure of what you need before you start putting in your time, money and effort.

Moreover, you need to rack up your flight time before applying for jobs. The bare minimum is around 1000 hours in the air for any kind of pilot work, so it’s best to get started as soon as you can. Again, the requirements vary by type of licence, so double-check that number when ascertaining your licence needs as well!

Career development

Piloting jobs have many career paths open to them. There are hundreds of larger airports that you might fly to as well as thousands of smaller, regional places, and your particular brand of pilot job affects your professional development too.

However, there are common experiences amongst these different jobs. You start with an entry-level job and then move to First Officer. From here, you can become a Senior First Officer, and then become a Captain. At some point, you may make a lateral move into more complex aircraft piloting. From this point, and with this level of experience, you’ll have quite a few possibilities. You can move up into management, step out to become a trainer, or really get involved by working in accident investigation jobs.

If it’s clear that you’re ready to get applying for jobs, you’re already where you need to be. We have all kinds of jobs listed now with a handy-dandy search function to get just the right job for you. Start looking now and best of luck with your applications!
