Your Skills Are Relevant And Transferable

The next few years are going to impact pilots differently, how you feel, what you decide to do and what options you have. There may be times when frustration and anger take hold. When the lack of control at not being able to do, what you were born to do, becomes overwhelming.  

For those reasons we have put together practical steps and key information you can use to move into this next phase of your working life.

The Pilot Transition Program also contains inspiring audio interviews in which Kirsty talks to pilots who have reimagined themselves in the business world. Some have gone into non-flying roles and others who been impacted by the airline industry shutdown in different ways. 

They all frankly discuss their reactions as their lifelong dream career became unstable and what steps they took next.

Pilots are unique and talented individuals, we have always felt that this industry is like no other, which is already evident in how we support each other to traverse this tough period.

Please keep sharing your stories, struggles and ideas with us, we love hearing from you.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any specific questions or need further assistance. 

As always, we are here to help you.
