How to strengthen your Aer Lingus Future Pilot application

The Aer Lingus Future Pilot Programme online application is open until the 10 April. To help candidates, Stephen AV8 addresses important eligibility criteria and includes tips to reinforce their application. 

Aer Lingus has opened the first phase of the application process for its Future Pilot Programme. The pilot training programme will see successful applications eventually becoming A320 pilots for the Irish flag carrier. 

The training course that has no upfront cost will include initial flying training at FTE Jerez, followed by an A320 type rating course at Aer Lingus headquarters in Dublin. 

According Captain Karl O’Neill, chief instructor ATO recruitment at Aer Lingus: “We are looking for candidates with diverse backgrounds to join our team.

“Aer Lingus has a proud tradition in pilot training and has been offering Future Pilot Training Programmes for almost sixty years. These programmes offer candidates a unique opportunity to join our expanding team as an Aer Lingus Pilot via this fully sponsored scheme.

“Whether you have just finished school/college or simply want to change career, this could be the right move for your future. Many of our pilots have joined us from other industries, and we urge to consider doing the same.”

O’Neill adds that to secure a place on the course candidates must be highly motivated and must demonstrate the competencies required to become a commercial airline pilot. The Aer Lingus Future Pilot Programme will begin in September 2024.
