Example Cover Letters for Pilots
Written specifically for individual airlines
Don’t let a poorly written Cover Letter hold back your application!
When applying to an airline, you need to ensure your application contains a well written, highly specific Covering Letter that addresses the airline’s ethos and operation, matching them with your skills and attributes.
Whilst we offer a full Professional Pilot Cover Letter tailoring service, we appreicate this isn’t within everyones budget. Therefore we have put together a set of example cover letters for specific airlines which you can download and edit yourself. These Pilot Covering Letters have been specifically designed for Low Hour Cadet First Officers who are seeking their first flying job.
Each Pilot Cover Letter (other than the generic one) considers the airline’s type of operation, fleet, ethos and history. This attention to detail demonstrates a few highly desirable attributes to a prospective employer:
- You are highly motivated
- You understand the airline’s operation
- You have spent time researching the job you are applying to
- You are prepared to invest time and energy into a high quality application
Why would an airline invite someone to an interview who has put together a ‘Generic Pilot Cover Letter’, which clearly hasn’t been specially tailored to that airline, when someone else has? Who would you give the job to. Airline’s value a well thought out and detailed application.
“An investment in a high quality Pilot Cover Letter is an investment in your future”
*Important* – The example letters should be used as a guide to demonstrate how to customise your letter. You should take the time to amend your cover letter to ensure it is unique and genuinely reflects your application.
