Pilot Apprentice


Jet2.com is excited to announce the availability of new positions within our successful Pilot Apprentice program. This initiative aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of our company’s business operations, customer service, and philosophy before taking the helm in the cockpit. It’s a remarkable opportunity to start a long-term career with an award-winning Leisure Travel Business.

Our Pilot Apprentice program has consistently offered exceptional career growth for new pilots entering the world of commercial aviation. We are proud to say that several of our initial Pilot Apprentices have already advanced to Captain positions. As a Jet2.com Pilot Apprentice, you’ll receive guidance and support to help prepare you for your type rating and beyond.

You’ll have the chance to spend time at both our commercial and operational headquarters in Leeds to witness how we deliver an award-winning customer experience. During the program, we’ll schedule simulator, in-person, and virtual training sessions to enhance your skills and comprehension of our operations. You’ll also have the opportunity to work as Cabin Crew to understand how we deliver our VIP customer service. Furthermore, you’ll spend time in the crew room at one of our bases supporting the management team in all aspects of the operation. The whole experience will give you a comprehensive understanding of our successful Airline and holiday business.
