I thought it was illegal to discriminate on the grounds of age. For British Airways apparently not…

My guess is that is because if you apply at 63 youíd never actually fly for them, given you have to stop flying when you hit 65Ö

As said above, age discrimination solely based upon age IS illegal, UNLESS it can be objectively justified!
But I have to say I didn’t think I’d see the day fully sponsored cadet schemes made a comeback so this is brilliant news. I have it on VERY good authority that this is just the beginning too. 60 pilots a year is just the start.

I assume BA will be able to manage the whole concept better than UAL has so far with its school:

This is such an amazing opportunity! I'm wondering if anybody has any tips around how to prepare for the aptitude test and/or entry exams? I'm imagining the process will be very competitive so would like to give myself the best chance. Are there any recommendations for tutors that could help with preparation?
