Pilot CV


Pilot CVs are usually straight forward documents. A pilot CV should mention the level of the license held by the applicant i.e. whether commercial pilot’s license or private pilot’s license. Employers will be interested to know how many hours of flying experience you have. Employers would also be interested in knowing the exact types of aircraft that you have handled and the amount of time you have spent flying each one.

Apart from demonstrating your flight skills, a winning pilot CV should show that the applicant has a good understanding of the aircraft that they have had experience flying. Studies in aircraft maintenance and aeronautical engineering are obvious advantages. You can also demonstrate this knowledge in the achievements; work experience or volunteer experience section e.g. cleaned and inspected small aircraft engines as a private pilot at a certain airstrip.
