After a formal signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), Avelo Airlines and Skyborne are implementing a Preferred Hiring Pathway to provide opportunities for pilots and mechanics training at Skyborne to embark on a career with Avelo.

The Avelo and Skyborne Preferred Hiring Pathway is designed to support the selection and training of potential new-hire, high-caliber pilots, and mechanics, to assist with subsequent recruitment to the Avelo workforce. The Pathway also provides outstanding career opportunities for selected trainees, each of whom will be required to demonstrate the skills, knowledge, professional and personal qualifications to become a member of the Avelo team.

“This is especially important at a time when demand for highly skilled and qualified airline pilots has never been greater,” said Captain Ed Davidson, Managing Director, Skyborne.“Crucially, this new partnership delivers a Preferred Hiring Pathway that increases opportunities for more young people to realise their dreams of becoming a professional pilot and taking up a coveted position on an Avelo flightdeck.”
