In addition, you will be required to develop and maintain strong relationships with senior airline leaders as you represent the CAA risk-based approach to safety and surveillance.

You will be respected for your successful career in commercial aviation and will be extremely competent in all aspects of modern jet operations, systems, equipment, standards and practices, preferably on Boeing or Airbus aircraft. You will be recognised for your effective team contributions, high standards and a professional approach to aviation safety, and training. To be successful in this role you:

  • Must hold or have recently held an ATPL (preferably with ratings on Boeing or Airbus large turbine powered aircraft equipped with EFIS and advanced systems); and excellent written, presentation and critical reasoning skills.

Will ideally have:

  • Extensive experience as a Jet pilot
