Recent feedback on our airline interview and airline application support service.

See what previous clients have to say about our service.

Applying to any airline is a process that frequently sees fierce competition from other candidates, combined with demanding selection processes from airline recruiters. Our team have passed multiple airline selection processes on their first attempts and with ‘in house’ training to support you.

Andrew will give you a tailored package helping you succeed in a very competitive market. I can only thank him for his efforts, without which, my position right now would not be this positive!
Current Airline Pilot / Virgin Atlantic
I was absolutely delighted to be offered a job with my chosen airline and it is thanks to Andrew’s friendly, professional, flexible service that I succeeded. Whatever your aviation background, I would highly recommend Flight Deck Wingman to all aspiring airline pilots.
Military Pilot / Jet2
As a former military pilot, Flight Deck Wingman’s specialisation in helping pilots with my type of background to succeed in a second career was invaluable.
Military Pilot / Easyjet
Andrew's guidance, insight, knowledge and thoughts were beneficial in helping me to prepare for my academy assessment where I was successful.
Aspiring Pilot / Major Airline
Flight Deck Wingman has the skills to dissect a company’s ethos and branding, putting into words how my skills and experience could match their requirements. Less than a week after the closing date for applications, I received an email inviting me to the next stage of selection.
Current Airline Pilot / TUI
Andrew has a unique industry insight and provided me with expert support and assistance throughout my application process. Following professional guidance using his in depth knowledge I was able to secure a job with the UK's flag carrier.
Current Airline Pilot / British Airways
I owe a big thank you to Flight Deck Wingman for this service and endorse Andrew 100%, no need to look elsewhere.
Military Pilot / Virgin Atlantic
A big thank you to Andrew for the professional and personal service for helping me to gain employment offers with 2 major UK airlines. The service was specifically tailored to my individual needs and significantly improved my performance at interview.
Military Pilot / Virgin Atlantic
Flight deck wingman gave me the tools and know how to thrive at the assessment day. Andrew really gives you the confidence to prepare and challenge yourself - not only on the day but with a personalised service afterwards. Cannot recommend this service highly enough and a MUST for any potential airline pilot. Thanks!
Military Pilot / TUI
I can’t say enough about the service that Flight Deck Wingman provides. The insight and depth of knowledge into the airline assessment processes is, in my opinion, unrivalled and the key to success. The thought, attention to detail and delivery of the preparation package demonstrates that he genuinely cares about your future and gets a kick out of helping people to gain that all important airline job.
Military Pilot / British Airways
Using FDW's insights, I have created a professional CV that is my own work and entirely personalised. It has been time well spent; my new CV has helped me to interviews with BA, TUI and Norwegian and job offers are starting to emerge too! FDW's service has been really genuine and I'm very grateful for the continuing words of wisdom and sound advice that come with it.
Military Pilot / Major Airline
I elected to attend FDW’s 'IP to Flight Deck Course'.Having not attended an interview, or any form of selection, for over 16 years, the wealth of industry experience and knowledge that Andrew and his Wingmen offer was fundamental in my success in securing an airline job.Andrew offers techniques which are easy to follow, but more importantly extremely effective when employed during selection.
Military Pilot / Major Airline
Andrew conducts his business with the utmost of professionalism, and I would not hesitate to recommend his services to any other pilot facing the often intimidating world of airline recruitment.
Current Airline Pilot / Virgin Atlantic
With Andrew’s help I wrote a CV which helped me obtain interviews with 5 UK carriers, and I am now about to embark on a new career with a major UK airline on the 737-800.  Thanks Andrew, I couldn’t have done it without you!
Military Pilot / Major Airline
I can highly recommend Flight Deck Wingman for any pilot of any experience about to go through airline pilot selection. As an experienced pilot, both RAF and airline, I felt able to answer pretty much anything that could come up in an interview, but it was very clear when going through practise questions with Andrew that I was far from the polished article and not really tuned into the airline and its ethos that I had set my sights on. The one to one coaching session was invaluable and I felt far more comfortable and confident on the day when I went for selection at which I was successful.
Current Airline Pilot / Virgin Atlantic
With Flight Deck Wingman’s coaching I sent out three CVs, got three invitations to Assessment Days, and ended up with three job offers. This is a result I could not have dreamed of 12 months ago and I can honestly say the path would have been much less smooth, perhaps even treacherous, with out FDW guidance.
Military Pilot / TUI
The CV & Covering Letter service is fantastic. It ensured the necessary information was included in my CV to make it as appealing as possible to the company I was applying for. I then attended an ‘IP to Flight Deck’ course and the content included in the course meant I went to the assessment day fully prepared and confident, making it an enjoyable experience. All of the FDW services has led to another client successfully transitioning from military to the civilian aviation.
Military Pilot / TUI
I recommend FDW services to all military pilots transitioning to the civilian world. His “successful techniques, not tip-offs” mantra means you have the practical methods to pass any airline selection and smoothly convert to civilian life. Thanks again Andrew.
Military Pilot / TUI
Thanks for all your help in preparing for my airline selection. An invitation for interview within 2 days of submitting my CV created with your help was much quicker than expected and a testament to the quality of your training! Combined with the expert advice gained during the IP to Flight Deck course meant I was completely prepared for what was to come. Aside from that, being able to message or call outside of the courses makes it feel like a very personal service and is why I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone looking to go down the same path.
Military Pilot / Jet2
Andrew’s product is an absolute no-brainer for anyone considering leaving the service and the courses are a lifesaver while balancing exams, studying for licenses and interview preparation. The techniques taught will also allow you to prepare for almost any industry, not just a career in commercial aviation and I have also recommended his courses to several non-military people trying to get jobs in the industry.
Military Pilot / NetJets
For anyone approaching Service exit, do not underestimate both the highly competitive selection environment and the strong competition you will encounter. Both are not insurmountable, however, Andrew and his team at Flight Deck Wingman will provide bespoke support to realise your full potential, communicate your experience effectively and sell yourself, something many service personnel, including myself, do not find a straight forwards, natural process.
Military Pilot / Major Airline
I contacted Andrew after working in the industry for over 11 years for some help with the interview process. Not having been in the job market for so long it was a little daunting. I would not hesitate to recommend Flight Deck Wingman to anyone looking to enter or move within the industry. He helped me to understand the skills and competencies that recruiters were looking for, and how to construct answers highlighting my own skills and experience.
Current Airline Pilot / TUI
Over the past year I have applied to 3 major UK airlines and I have secured employment with all 3.  Prior to undertaking this journey I contacted Andrew and used Flight Deck Wingman’s "Full CV Service". I have no doubt that the only reason my applications made it thorough the initial stage of screening is due to the changes that Andrew suggested.
Military Pilot / British Airways
I can’t recommend attending one of Flight Deck Wingman’s ‘IP to Flight Deck’ Airline Preparation Day Courses highly enough. It’ll send you on the path to success.
Military Pilot / TUI
I fully endorse Flight Deck Wingman to anyone who requires any help/guidance for an upcoming airline selection or job interview. It will give you the edge to get ahead of the competition!
Current Airline Pilot / Virgin Atlantic
The NetJets interview went really well. I felt like I aced it. The Skype coaching was extremely valuable! I say that because using those techniques, I only got asked ONE competency based question. I know that the same interview panel asked me just seven of them! So yes, it really worked.
Military Pilot / NetJets
A big thank you to Andrew and the Flight Deck Wingman team for the ‘IP to Flight Deck’ Course. For anybody thinking of attending, I can highly recommend it. Packed with useful information and delivered impeccably by Andrew and his team.
Military Pilot / Airline
Leaving the military is a daunting experience, but thanks to Andrew and his “Wingmen” I felt armed with the tools required to secure my first airline job. Having secured a place in two holding pools and with more interviews upcoming, I can vouch for the Flight Deck Wingman service - an invaluable ‘tool set’ that will give you the confidence and knowledge to succeed
Military Pilot / TUI
Andrew and his team gave me the skills and the confidence to do well in the selection process, and I look forward to starting the next stage of my career at the airline I wanted to work for all along. The real value in what Andrew offers is his time and knowledge, and I am extremely grateful for the personal interest Andrew took to ensure I was as prepared as I could be for the recruitment process.
Military Pilot / British Airways
The course content and delivery was excellent.  It highlighted the areas that will be critical on the day of your assessment and focused your attention on the competencies that recruiters are seeking.  The guidance given on pertinent techniques was especially useful, enabling you to construct appropriate and structured answers to interview style questions, hence giving you the best chance of success on the day.
