Excellent Guidance, Thank You
I would like to thank Andrew for his recent excellent guidance; firstly in helping me transform my CV into a thing of beauty, but also for the brilliant airline interview preparation day. The CV rewrite certainly worked, as I have been offered several interviews and assessments with major airlines, and have already been offered a position with Ryanair. His interview preparation advice (for me, as someone with very little interview experience) was really well delivered and pitched perfectly. He doesn’t just offer fantastic advice for general interviewing, but he tailored his advice to each individual’s previous background and experience, which certainly made me think clearly about what personal strengths I could promote to the airline during interview. Andrew is very insightful and knowledgable about what the airlines are looking for in a candidate for a job and this, together with his group exercise practical, gave me new confidence before entering my interview. I would suspect that pilots of all experience levels could gain a great deal from Andrew.
Offered my First Airline Job
I attended a Flight Deck Wingman interview preparation day and a matter of weeks later got offered my first airline job from the first interview I attended. I attribute this success largely to the Flight Deck Wingman team, who not only teach you the techniques to recognise and know the style of answer and competencies that the assessors are looking for, but also give you the confidence to deliver them in a first class manner. I would absolutely recommend Flight Deck Wingman as a necessity for anyone looking to ensure they give themselves the best chance of securing a job.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Flight Deck Wingman for the great support and help with the Airline preparation course I attended to. After attempting several interviews in trying to pass that first airline job interview and having used other airline preparation services but without success. I finally messaged Flight Deck Wingman (Andrew) to help me and prepare me for my next interview. Andrew was very professional and instantly knew what I required to pass. His techniques and teaching methods were unique. Andrew’s years of experience within the airline industry and air forces speaks for itself and certainly knows what’s required to pass. After attending a full day course of training I was more confident to pass my upcoming assessment. I am pleased to say after attending this course I passed my first airline interview thanks to flight deck wingman. I would definitely recommend anyone in using Andrew’s services and would happily use it again.
Andrew came highly recommended from colleagues who had recently used FDW to help transition to a new company. He was exactly the service I needed to offer invaluable support which fully prepared and specifically tailored my interview style.
After many years away from the interview environment FDWs interview coaching session built confidence, gave a clear technique to approach all likely questions and focussed my attention on the company I was applying for.
I highly recommend FDW to give you the best chance of success in your new chosen job, you won’t regret it! Thanks Andrew!
Invaluable Group Exercise
I attended the Flight Deck Wingman day course having already done a lot of prep for a chosen airline so I was fairly intrigued as to what benefit/knowledge the course could add. To my welcome surprise, quite a lot actually. I found the course very helpful and also compliments very nicely any personal prep done before hand. I’d say that your own personal preparation creates a lot of useful dots of information in your mind, the flight deck day then helps to join these dots to create a solid model for what is required to approach recruitment processes. Of particular note I found the group exercise invaluable, Andrew is honest in his feedback, highlighting the positive but also the negative. This gives you clear points to work on before a real work airline group ex and for myself was of vast benefit. As well as Andrews teaching, it is beneficial that the course is open for the group to have discussion as different topics came up through the day, creating more valuable knowledge between us.
I’d highly recommend the course, I left feeling confident that I could attend any recruitment process and be able to perform well.
As an Aspiring Pilot, I was recently unsuccessful in a selection day and decided to seek some advice from Flight Deck Wingman. Andrew invited me onto the ‘Airline Pilot Day Course’ which highlighted the fundamental areas of selection and what the recruiters are looking for. From previous selection feedback, I struggled to describe my experiences in a way that would showcase the desired competencies and skills. However, exactly one week after the course, I was able to put everything into practice and I’m delighted to say that I have been offered a place with a major UK Airline Academy.
Not only is the course delivered in a professional manner, the aftercare is also exceptional and Andrew really does commit to helping you and your future. I would strongly recommend Flight Deck Wingman to any Aspiring Pilot.
