Our SOAR program focuses on aviation career awareness, recruitment and retention. Through SOAR partnerships with flight schools, airlines, and other supporting organizations across Canada, we provide opportunities for a variety of candidates including students and low-time pilots. If you’re preparing for your first airline interview, be sure to keep these interview tips in mind:
Airline pilots are held to a high standard of professionalism in presentation and manner. At an airline interview you should carry yourself with confidence: smile, give firm handshakes and make eye contact with interviewers.
Double- check that you have prepared photocopies of all requested documents. Make sure that they’re easily readable and up to date. Your license should be signed, your medical current and your logbook certified.
Reflect on your experiences
Prepare stories ahead of time and practice telling them to a friend or family member! Think of an example of a conflict or teamwork stories from flying, work or school, so that you are prepared to answer questions with specific examples.
Dress for success
A pilot’s uniform reflects on their professionalism, and therefore at the minimum, you should dress business casual. This means slacks not jeans, dress shoes, not sneakers, a dress shirt, and tie. If you have a current pilot uniform this is also acceptable!
Be honest and let your interviewer get to know the real you. An interview is a two-way street and being yourself gives both parties the chance to see if the candidate and the position are a good fit.
