What to do for work while training to be a commercial pilot!!
I was wondering if working in Aviation, especially airside, might stand me in good stead. Ive applied for, cargo, de-icing and baggage jobs at gatwick but no luck yet. Then i saw an add for BA Gatwick Cabin Crew and thought what the heck, nothing ventured nothing gained. So I completed the online application. Well I thought, its all good experience, cant hurt. Watch a few vids complete the 30min Survey and done not expecting any reply.
Well I passed and was invited to an assessment day at Heathrow with 100 others, nearly all in their beautiful 20's. So I thought, more good experience, meet some nice people, check out the vibe and the artwork and off home.
There was a physical test, two solo role plays, a group role play and if you pass those, a two to one interview.
All completed, sitting there waiting to be sent home on the first cull. A list of names were called out and 25 or so were escorted to the waiting room. WELL DONE, said the Manger, youve all made it through!! At this point im speechless. OMG! What is going on?
The interview went ok, better than most, dare i even think this might actually be happening?
So to cut to the chase....

I still cant quite get my head around it, but it looks like i'll be finishing my ppl and doing hour building and MEP/IR while wirking in the back, knowing, one day, i'll be in the front.
I'll keep you posted from the jump seat
Still can't believe it. Training and Hard work to follow so no guarantees but... One step nearer.
