“I was encouraged to attend one of Flight Deck Wingman’s ‘IP to Flight Deck’ Military Transition Courses by several colleagues who were already clients.  Having now attended one myself and ultimately been successful in gaining employment with my preferred airline, I can thoroughly recommend that any one who is prepping for an airline assessment day do the same.

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.

On a personal level I have been nothing but impressed by Andrew’s professionalism, commitment and willingness to go above and beyond for each individual client.  I have no doubt that this is what sets him apart from the competition and I have no hesitation in recommending Flight Deck Wingman for anyone seeking employment with a civilian airline.”
