Help for pilots looking to transition to a new career.

If you’ve had your pilot wings temporarily clipped, then Flight Deck Wingman is here to help.

It’s been a tough couple of years in the aviation industry. Even before COVID impacted the aviation industry, pilots found themselves prematurely grounded – an awful situation and one that we understand.

Our mission has always been to help all pilots maximise their potential and achieve success with their applications. That’s why for pilots affected by job loss or coming out of flight school with limited pilot job opportunities, we are on hand to help you find alternative employment until you can return to the skies. Our highly effective training techniques are proven to deliver success and not just for pilot roles. What’s more, we have streamlined our normal services and discounted our normal rates to assist pilots applying for non-flying roles. Read on to learn more about how Flight Deck Wingman can help…
