Skyborne Airline Academy launches support programme for former Flybe pilots

From 6th March 2020, former Flybe pilots will be able to apply for a specialist Skyborne sponsored flight instructor programme. Those pursuing airline roles will alternatively be able to sign up to receive three hours of free time in Skyborne’s Boeing 737 MAX simulator, to prepare for the simulator assessment phase of any future job interview.

Lee Woodward, Chief Executive Officer, Skyborne, says: “The aviation community has been deeply affected by the collapse of Flybe. We understand how difficult and stressful life must be for those who have lost their jobs, so we are launching this support package to assist in job seeking and preparation.

“Through our Sponsored Multi Engine Flight Instructor Programme, focused workshops and free access to our Boeing 737 Max simulator for assessment preparation, we hope to bring some stability to those affected, as they focus on their next steps, and possibly explore a new direction in their aviation career.”

Skyborne Airline Academy launches support programme for former Flybe pilots

Skyborne launched its first Sponsored Flight Instructor Programme in June 2019 to foster the next generation of airline pilot instructors. This new initiative is specifically aimed at former Flybe pilots who hold an FI (A) rating (current or lapsed), and are looking for a new career in training.

Skyborne will sponsor the Multi Engine P1 requirement to meet the Multi Engine Flight Instructor rating requirement. Participants who successfully complete the programme will commence full-time employment as Multi Engine Flight Instructors at Skyborne’s base in Gloucestershire.

From 16th March to 16th June 2020, Skyborne is providing access to its Boeing 737 Max simulator, free of charge to ex-Flybe pilots. Pilots will receive a one-hour briefing followed by two hours of flight training in the simulator; saving £650 from the regular rate.

In order to apply for the Skyborne Sponsored Flight Instructor Programme or to book time in the academy’s Boeing 737 Max simulator, please email fly@skyborne.com
