Helicentre Aviation Academy will be hosting Bristow Helicopters’ Careers Days from 16-17 April 2019, at its Midlands-based training facility in Leicester. The joint initiative will bring together experienced and newly qualified industry professionals seeking a career path into Oil and Gas or Search and Rescue, with those responsible for pilot recruitment at Bristow Helicopters within the U.K.

Captain Sarah Bowen, head of training at Helicentre Aviation believes the event will motivate and inspire pilots still undergoing training to learn about career choices they may not have previously considered, especially with Bristow’s Oil and Gas careers providing a route into Search and Rescue. “Hosting the Career Days within a busy training environment will further strengthen the link between our own Career Development Programme and the opportunities that exist for pilots beyond,” she added.

Presentations and interviews will be held by Bristow Group representatives across the two-day event and places will be offered to suitable candidates on application. Pilots holding a CPL(H) with ATPL(H)/IR theory and an Instrument Rating (IR), or those who are in the process of attaining an IR are encouraged to apply for a place. Applicants must also have a safe flying record, no criminal record and the right to reside and work in the U.K.

There will be another opportunity to meet with Helicentre Aviation Academy and Bristow Group at Pilot Careers Live in London, on Saturday, 6 April 2019. Industry professionals from both companies will be delivering a 30-minute seminars focusing on helicopter pilot careers, and they will be available throughout the day to speak to new and prospective trainee helicopter pilots.
