Airline Pilot

The future in the Airline Industry is very bright. The demand is growing for experienced and qualified pilots with opportunities at a range of levels.

Become an airline pilot

 

For most young pilots the utltimate goal is to be the Captain of a large airliner - fact is that all pilots started from the same place as you - so being that airline Captain is achieveable.

 

If you have a desire to be an airline pilot then we can assist.  The opportinities are endless.

Pilots who earn a living with large airlines, such as Air NZ, Qantas, Cathay Pacific and the like, fly large jet equipment such as Boeing’s 777’s and 787s.  Operators such as Emirates fly the super heavyweight – the A380.

Within the industry the average salary for a major airline pilot is in the US $100,000 range, with senior captains flying mega-size airplanes (Boeing 747-8L and the A380) earning up to US $200,000 annually.

For flying professionals associated with the “regionals,” smaller turboprop airplanes are the norm. Entry-level salary for a commuter pilot is invariably in the NZ$30,000 to NZ$45,000 range; a captain on a new regional turbo prop can earn over NZ $70,000 and up to NZ $110,000 annually with seniority.

Major international airlines, the companies that are most highly desired and attract the most competitive candidates, will require in the neighbourhood of 1,500 to 3,000 flight time hours and about 300 to 500 hours of multiengine time for application acceptance. Additionally, a three or four-year degree is virtually a must.

Most regional airlines require about 1,500 total hours, including 500 hours in multiengine airplanes. However, a few companies have been known to hire applicants with only 1,000 hours of total flight time and 100 hours of multi engine experience. Although a degree is helpful, it is not a requirement.  Our Diploma is a great means of achieving that higher level of academic recognition.

 

What Does the Future Hold?

Boeing has made the following predictions based on known aircraft orders.

 

 

Quite clearly from this information the future in the airline industry is incredibly bright.

Our Diploma in Aviation (Aeroplane) (Airline Preparation) Level 6 provides a great base from which to launch your career.
