Q1. Tell me about yourself and why you want to become a pilot with our airline?

SUGGESTED ANSWER:

“I am highly organized, professional and analytical person who has the right qualities, attributes and temperament to become a competent pilot with your airline. I fully understand and acknowledge that, with the role of a pilot, comes a huge amount of responsibility, and the experiences I have gained in life so far, coupled with my strong work ethics and dedication, make me the perfect candidate for this position. I want to become a pilot with your airline because, having researched your history and your future plans, you are clearly an airline who has a strong reputation amongst your passengers and I feel I would be supported in the role to enable me to carry out my duties to the high standards required.”

Q2. In your opinion, what qualities should a pilot possess?

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“The qualities needed to be a competent pilot are numerous and varied. In particular, a pilot needs an ability to remain calm under extreme pressure; the ability to follow rules and procedures and also take responsibility when things go wrong; strong communication skills and an ability to adapt your communication style to suite the audience and the situation; the desire to continually learn, improve and develop; strong team working skills; an ability to concentrate for long periods of time; a passion for delivering strong customer service skills whilst representing the airline you are working for, and also the understanding that you have to act as a positive role model for the airline at all times. In essence, your actions whilst working as a pilot can have an impact on whether or not passengers return to the airline for future travel plans when needed. This is particularly important because the airline, and your employment as a pilot, relies heavily on passengers returning time and time again.”

Pilot Job Description and Person Specification


As a pilot you will be responsible for flying passengers or cargo to numerous destinations that form part of the airline’s long and short-haul travel policies. You will be responsible to safely fly the aircraft in line with operational flying procedures and protocol whilst also following and adhering to strict air traffic rules and regulations.

During each flight, there will be a minimum of two pilots; one of the pilots will be the captain of the aircraft who will establish overall control, whilst the other pilot will be the first officer. The role of a first officer is to support the commanding officer in their role. Depending on the length of the flight, the first officer and captain will usually share the flying time in order to avoid fatigue. During normal flying operations, one of the pilots will operate the flying controls whilst the other communicates with air traffic control.

The role of an airline pilot requires intense concentration and, along with the position, there comes a huge amount of responsibility to ensure the aircraft, crew and passengers are safe at all times.

Duties and responsibilities of a pilot include:

  • Conduct accurate pre-flight checks and fuel supplies of your aircraft in line with the airlines operational policies.
  • Test and assess all safety operating systems prior to the flight.
  • Create a suitable flight plan for your destination based on information available to you via air traffic control and inflight data systems.
  • Communicate with air traffic control periodically and adhere to their instructions based on aircraft altitude and flight path.
  • Brief all flight attendants and cabin crew staff to ensure they are aware of inflight protocol and communicate with them regularly during the flight.
  • Utilize flight navigation and operating systems both pre, during and post flight.
  • Adhere to noise regulations during take-off.
  • Communicate with the passengers on the flight periodically to keep them update on flight progress.
  • Complete and update the aircraft logbook in line with your training and the airline’s operating procedures.
  • React appropriately and quickly to changing events and situations, again in line with your pilot’s training and within the operating constraints of your aircraft.
  • Carry out regular in-flight checks to assess the aircraft’s technical performance and utilize all available flight data to ensure the correct operation of your aircraft.

PILOT INTERVIEW TIP #4 – It does not matter whether you are applying for a pilot position with Qatar, Virgin Atlantic, Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Ryanair, British Airways (BA), EasyJet, Lufthansa or American Airlines, you need to make sure you understand the challenges the airline industry is facing right now and how you, within your role as a pilot, can help them to overcome these challenges.
