Exceptional people make exceptional pilots

We’re building the team that sets the new standards in the aviation training industry.

On the one hand, that’s about recognising that flying is a serious business. The foundation of our business is built on a relentless focus on safety and technical excellence. We demand the very highest standards from every member of our team.

But we also know that flying is about teamwork. It takes an entire industry to make an aircraft fly—and it takes a huge team to produce the pilots that fly them. We’ve created a supportive, fun environment, where people actually enjoy coming to work every day. Critical to the way we work, is making sure that everybody is valued. It’s the little touches that help each member of our team know they’re respected and valued. These are just as important to us as the big picture stuff, like modern offices and flexible working options.

We’re always on the lookout for inspirational innovators to join our team. If you think you could step up to the challenge and have the skills and drive to join our leading edge team, then please get in touch.

Flexible options

We know the demands of a career in the skies can often tip the work-life balance, especially when you have a family or other caring responsibilities. So flexibility is critical to the way we work together. If you need to take time out of the cockpit for any reason, we can support you to figure out the different options. It might be taking a few years out to be an instructor with us, or a secondment on the ground with one of the airlines. We’ll help you to keep pursuing your career in a way that’s best for you and your family, until you’re ready to get back in the skies. We already live these principles at Leading Edge Aviation and want to do all we can to offer that to our cadets too.
