British Airways Pilots Opening


British Airways Pilots Opening

   As a British Airways mainline pilot, you’ll be dedicated to giving customers the best possible experience on every flight. You’ll be part of a dynamic and diverse flight crew working across an ever-expanding network of both long-haul and short-haul routes and taking control of some of our newest aircraft. Every 90 seconds, a British Airways aircraft takes off from somewhere around the globe.

   Our pilots take millions of customers to hundreds of amazing destinations every year, getting front-row seats to the most inspiring views with every take-off and landing.

  Our captains and first officers are quite literally driving change, too. That’s because when they take to the skies, they’re doing it in one of the most technologically advanced and fuel-efficient fleets of any airline in the world.

Pathways to success

       There are many ways to become a British Airways pilot. Whether you’ve got thousands of hours flying under your belt, you’re newly qualified and looking to begin a career with British Airways, or if you’re right at the start of your journey, we’re ready to welcome you to the family.

      Thinking about becoming a pilot? We want to attract the best future flying talent. Our newly launched Speed bird Pilot Academy is funding up to 60 places per year at an approved flight training school to help people realize their ambition of flying with British Airways.

           Our Direct Entry Pilot Scheme is an exciting career pathway for qualified service pilots from the Army Air Corps, Royal Air Force, Royal Marines, and Royal Navy who have completed their minimum service. You’ll be flying to exacting standards in one of the world’s most modern fleets.

Your journey to the flight deck

Online application:

       You’ll be asked about your motivation to join British Airways. Once you've done that, we may ask you to record answers to a series of interview questions so we can find out a bit more about you.

Technical assessment:

This is where we assess your ability to work under pressure and how you react to an increasing workload with a computer-based test.

Group exercise:

Here’s your chance to show us how well you work in a team, using a scenario you may face in your day-to-day role as a pilot with British Airways.


The moment where we can get to know each other and for you to demonstrate you have what it takes to become a British Airways pilot.


An assessment of your performance in the flight simulator, currently the A380. You’ll then be put into a holding pool pending an offer of a start date.

Pre-employment checks:

            We’ll conduct pre-employment and security checks; these include criminal record checks (CRC) and full five-year employment checks. You’ll also be asked to share your medical forms and book your uniform fitting, security interview, and psychoactive substance test at our Waterside HQ.

Rewards and Benefits

Pay and annual leave

      You’ll receive a market-competitive salary and paid annual leave. As well as parental, co-parental, and shared-parental leave, we also offer all primary parents the option to return to work on a reduced-hours arrangement, paid at their normal basic pay for up to six months.

Staff travel

  You’ll get access to discounted ‘Hotline’ tickets for yourself, friends, and family from day one, along with unlimited standby and premium standby fares for you and your nominees and an annual bookable concession upon completion of six months' service.


We offer a market-leading defined contribution (DC) pension. Enrolled at 2% employee contributions and 7% employer with an option to increase.

Flexible benefits

    Choose from benefits including critical illness cover, childcare vouchers, a cycle to work, additional life insurance cover, private medical insurance, a dental plan, and a healthcare cash plan.

Electric car scheme

   Colleagues can access a brand new, fully maintained, and insured electric car for a fixed monthly amount. Available through salary sacrifice, offering tax and NI savings. You’ll be eligible for this benefit after 12 months.

Heathrow Express

   Whether you are commuting to Heathrow or heading off on holiday, you’ll be entitled to buy Express Saver tickets with a 75% discount.

Pre-employment checks

     Once you have completed the New Joiner form, your pre-employment checks can begin. While they may seem time-consuming, our number one priority is to maintain safety and security across the business, so these checks are essential. We’re here to guide and support you through this process, which can typically take around 16 weeks.

We understand these may appear complex, but we’re here to guide and support you through this process, which can typically take around 16 weeks.

Here are some of the main things required:

  • Full details of your five-year background history, inclusive of employment periods (directly or via an agency), educational periods, and any gaps outside of these.

  • As soon as you’ve submitted your employment and referee details, we’ll start contacting your referees.

  • Closer to your start date, you’ll need to apply for a Criminal Records Check (CRC), also known as a Disclosure Barring Service certificate (DBS), and, where applicable, an overseas CRC if you have lived abroad for a continuous six months or more in the last five years.

  • You’ll be invited to book your joint appointment at our Waterside office, which will consist of your uniform fitting, a security interview, and a psychoactive substance test.
