Recent industry reports suggest the world will need more than 790,000 pilots over the next 20 years, with 146,000 in Europe alone. As carriers continue to expand their fleets, there has never been a better time for experienced pilots seeking new opportunities.

In response to the current demand for flight crew, Flight Crew Futures will be held at London Gatwick’s Hilton on 22nd May, and will align recruiting airlines with pilots. Airlines such as Emirates, BA City Flyer and Flybe will be joined by several specialist agencies, offering pilots an opportunity to speak directly with recruiters.

Flight Crew Futures is supported by BALPA (British Airline Pilots Association) to bring airlines, recruiters and pilots together, in order to provide visitors with relevant presentations on current flight crew requirements and career opportunities.

Wendy Pursey, Head of Membership and Career Services at BALPA, said Flight Crew Futures is where pilots are “able to ask some very difficult questions about what their future would look like,” and talk about the different careers currently available. For any pilot looking for new opportunities in the UK and across the world, Flight Crew Futures is a ‘must attend’ event.
