Pilot training at Coventry Airport

With the demand for commercial pilots seemingly unabated (Boeing predicts going on for 40,000 new aircraft over the next 20 years – each needing five two-man crews) the long-established Command Pilot Training based at Coventry Airport has launched a new commercial pilot ab initio tuition package.  It is specifically aimed at graduates looking for a career in civil aviation.
Approved by the British Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) training organisation, Command Pilot Training, has been training pilots at Coventry Airport for more than 25 years, and has recently rebranded to launch a comprehensive package that gives new pilots both FAA and EASA commercial qualifications, plus a host of career-focused extras.
The extras include a Jet Type Rating, Multi Crew Cooperation Course, upset recovery training and interview practice with a UK operator; all designed to make trainees ready for their first airline position.
Command’s course will be conducted in Florida and the UK and will result in dual American and European licences.  As a result, graduates will have global career opportunities in today’s highly competitive jobs market.  The cost of the course is put at £78,000.  The company will be at The Professional Pilot Training Exhibition, Sofitel, Terminal 5, Heathrow on Saturday 1 November.
