Application for the role of Pilot
I would like to apply for the role of Pilot that I have seen advertised (where, when and any job reference).
I have always wanted to be a Pilot since a young age so it was natural to follow my dream and take my Pilots licence. I am now keen to begin my career as a Pilot and ensure that passengers reach their destinations safely and on time.
I understand the importance of this role and how quickly things could go wrong. I understand that as a Pilot it is my responsibility to perform all the pre flight checks and ensure that I am happy for the flight to go ahead safely and securely.
I have a good working knowledge of the World and have travelled extensively so I feel privileged to be part of helping other people to travel safely to their required destinations.
I have a very calm manner; I work well under pressure and can concentrate for long periods of time. I work well with others and give and take instructions easily.
