Multi Engine Flight Instructor - Employed and Consultants
Are you an experienced Flight Instructor looking for an exciting opportunity with an innovative and dynamic academy?
Skyborne's vision is to be the most respected and trusted commercial pilot training academy in the industry, supplying airlines with the best pilots. Skyborne aims to achieve this by radically redefining every aspect of airline pilot training, from our unique educational approach, to our world-class facilities. We are fully committed to developing a dynamic, engaging and welcoming environment for the next generation of airline pilots to hone their skills.
Based at Skyborne HQ in Gloucestershire, UK, you will be working alongside other experienced Flight Instructors to deliver the Multi-Engine CPL and IR. This phase includes Multi-Engine CPL training with cadets undertaking a flight test in our DA42 as well as Instrument Rating. Cadets will alternate between the DA42 simulator and aircraft, supporting our Progressive Continuous Learning method which focuses on ensuring Cadets are always developing their talents and absorbing new skills from our vastly experienced instructors.
Skyborne’s UK base opened in 2019 and has excellent facilities that have been developed to the highest standard, offering the right balance between training and self-motivated learning. We have invested in the most advanced training devices and equipment, including our Diamond DA42 fleet, ALSIM AL42 and 737 Max fixed base simulators.
We are looking for exceptional Multi-Engine Flight Instructors to join our highly skilled and professional team at Skyborne HQ. Those with previous airline experience bring a valued perspective to the Skyborne vertically integrated programmes, however this is not a requirement. Instilling airline standards throughout every aspect of the training journey, ensuring we produce the most professional airline pilots.
Responsibilities in the role would include conducting training in accordance with the approved syllabus, and in compliance with the Academy published schedule/programme. You would be expected to comply with all rules and procedures detailed in the Academy Operations Manual and to uphold flight safety in every aspect of training, including monitoring the maintenance condition of the training fleet and reporting any defects to operations.
Responsibilities to the cadets will include ensuring each cadet is appropriately briefed and debriefed following training, and monitoring every assigned cadet’s progress through their training programme. Any training performance problems should be reported to the Head of Training or designated representative. Skyborne has developed high standards of training and performance and it is the responsibility of the instructor to ensure these standards are promoted and maintained at all times.
Whilst Skyborne will cover revalidation and medical renewal expenses, all FI's need to take personal responsibility for monitoring their own license and rating validity and making sure that their personal log book is up-to-date and accurate. Personal responsibility for retention of a valid Class 1 medical is essential.
