Airline Career Training (ACT)

Our new ACT course has been designed to meet an increasingly important need to ensure that newly qualified pilots are also trained in a number of key interpersonal skills previously considered outside the scope of traditional flight training courses. Our courses are delivered and facilitated by highly experienced airline recruitment professionals, Ruth Spalding and Natalie Mitchell.

The style and approach of our 3-day ACT course is highly practical and interactive in nature - consisting of CV development, covering letters, airline applications, group exercise preparation, mock interviews and feedback, aptitude and psychometric tests and feedback, and Simulator Assessment Preparation.
