C.V. Format- P1/ P2 Hours Flown

Can anyone give a little help with the format on a C.V. relating to hours flown?

There’s an obvious difference between P1 and P2 time whilst training. However, is it necessary to differentiate between the two whilst flying commercially, in a turbo prop or jet, in a multi crew environment? Or should P1 and P1 Under Supervision be separated? Or what?

Any suggestions on formatting the various types of hours would be appreciated.

This is a rough guide to an aviation cv as suggested to me by someone who now works for an airline:

Header - Curriculum Vitae - {Your Name}

Personal Details

Phone, Mobile, Fax and Email
Willing to relocate (leave this out if your not willing/able)
Date of Birth

Aviation Qualifications and Experience

Details of the type of training, Integrated/Modular, where and when.
Frozen ATPL
For CAA: Perf A, CRM, LOFT
For JAA: MCC details
P1 and P2 hours (multi/single seat and types)
Experience and additional aviation related aspects

General Education

Degree (subject, grade, where and when)
A= levels (which subjects, grades and when)
Scottish Highers (which subjects, grades and when)
A/S and GCSE/O levels or O grades (how many and relevant subjects)

Career to Date

What, where and when; only emphasise those areas that are relevant to aviation, plus jobs with responsibility. (Last job first)
Hobbies, Interests and Achievements (dont include your cycling proficency test, but if you have stuff like Duke of Edinburghs Awards etc)
Everything that will make you appear more interesting than the other candidates

Remember that the recipient may be flying with you at some time in the future, so it is probably best not to add to much "padding"
You should also attempt to show that you are jolly decent chap and all round good egg. Also, if possible, try to show your potential, ideally showing that you will make future captain material.

Hope that helps in some way.

Thanks, Puppy. That's very useful. What I want to clarify is the situation re hours gained in the Multi-crew commercial environment, where both pilots are working together. Do I separate P1 and P1us, since it's obvious that , until 1500 hours are passed, you're an ATPL.

Just guessing here, but I would imagine that airlines would be interested in multi-crew time, especially if it was gained on a JAR 25 aircraft (ie big hairyplanes, with some sort of turbine engines). So, I would be inclined to list those hours seprately.

Whilst listing multi crew hours seprately, do I break the multi crew hours into P1 and P1u/s, in that sometimes either I, or the Captain, does the take off and landing, or just leave these hours as a total, with no breakdown?

If you are flying a two crew aircraft as an F/O you are not flying the aircraft as P1. When PF you are logging P1U/S hours, when PNF you log P2.

Thanks for the info and PM, Pete.

That's clarified it. Interesting website you've got.
