The recruitment team didn't want it, but this is the best they can get in present climate. They're still working on other recruitment paths as well.



Have a word with yourself. A career at BA is now open to thousands of fATPL holders when it previously wasn't - hardly a sad day for aviation.
The recruitment team are working hard to open up these avenues, including cadet schemes. The appetite is there, it's a case of getting approval from on high which is the current difficulty at BA.
Rather than tell others to have a word with themselves consider why any one would pay for a type rating to add to the training debt they no doubt all ready have and then have to try and find accomodation in the South East? This is far from opening up a career in BA to thousands, it is just a further financial barrier.

(3 types on my licence, never paid a type rating yet)

Good for you.

Ultimately it's their choice whether they add to that debt, but I stand by my opinion that BA is more open to low houred pilots than it was before.

Does anyone have some more information about the actual process? What will happen after you apply?

There is a huge amount of detail on the BA selection process in the BA DEP thread in Terms and Endearment. I would imagine the process will be almost identical.

Anybody know any details of the salary for this? Trying to assess whether it's worth me paying the 18k TR or not. If prefer to keep private, please PM me.
