British Airways are announcing a new recruitment drive, to train 400 pilots over the next 5 years.
Pilot training recently has been paid for by students who must take out large loads of near £100,000 – meaning that recent pilot recruitment has been based on how deep your pockets are more than how skilled you are.
This new announcement from British Airways means eager pilots from all walks of life can apply to become a pilot.
BA also plan to recruit another 400 qualified pilots, due to growing numbers of routes and aircraft.
