Aer Lingus has reopened its pilot training programme.
The airline is offering 90 places on the recruitment initiative over the next five years.
It's the first time since 2019 that the carrier has run its intensive training programme.
The airline says "on qualifying, successful candidates will receive a Multi-crew Pilot’s Commercial Licence, leading them to become a First Officer and ultimately a Captain for short and long-haul routes".
Aer Lingus’s Chief Instructor, Captain Karl O’Neill, says they're looking for people who are highly motivated and passionate about aviation:
“Operating an aircraft requires specific skills and competencies. While pilots are required to be technically adept, many of the required competencies like decision-making, problem-solving, teamwork, and communication are readily transferred from other careers.
"We are seeking to attract future pilots with a wide breadth of qualifications from all backgrounds to reflect the rich diversity of our society and economy.
"We are looking for those with strong people skills, who are pragmatic and committed in their ambition to join our existing team of outstanding pilots.
"Successful candidates will go through one of the most thorough and high-standard training courses in the world with mentoring, guidance, and support throughout.”
Applications are open online until the 16th of August, and the course, which lasts 14-months, is fully sponsored by the airline.
