Oxford based Airways Aviation is launching CREW, a global aviation recruitment, screening and training programme as it tackles the increasingly challenging task of pilot recruitment and retention.

CREW, which stands for career, recruitment, evaluation and workforce, will enhance and streamline the recruitment and training process at every level - from student pilots through to Captains and cabin crew - allowing carriers to concentrate on company culture, route development, and other key commercial enterprises to better serve customers and shareholders.

The CREW programme caters for individuals at every career stage, from ATPL training and student pilot recruitment, through to pilot placement and video interviews. For carriers, CREW delivers recruitment programmes, COMPASS aptitude and simulator skills testing, type ratings and enhanced flight screening, as well as cabin crew training and assessment.
