Ground Instructors

Cambridge Airport

Virtual Aviation Flight Training is an EASA Approved Training Organisation (ATO).

Using our Boeing 737-800 simulator, we offer industry-leading MCC+JOC training, both for our own students and in collaboration with other ATOs.

We are now looking for more Ground Instructors to teach the Theoretical Knowledge Instruction (TKI) phase of the course.

Skills, Experience and Attributes

Ground Instructors  should have a minimum of 500 hours flying experience as a pilot, or flight engineer, in Multi-Pilot Aeroplane (MPA) operations.

In addition, Ground Instructors should hold, or have held, any one of the following qualifications:

  • Crew Resource Management Instructor (CRMI)
  • Line Training Captain (LTC) authorisation
  • Flying Instructor certificate
  • Completion of an instructional skills ‘Core’ course, or the EASA 25-hour ‘Teaching and Learning’ module
  • MCCI, SFI or TRI certificate for a MPA

Strong preference will be given to current line pilots, or those with recent airline flying experience, especially on the Boeing 737.

In the absence of flying experience, the Head of Training may consider a Ground Instructor who is a specialist in modern day application of CRM techniques (e.g. Aviation Lecturer, or Aviation Psychologist). The Head of Training  will assess such experience on a case-by-case basis. 

These are flexible roles for instructors wishing to work between 3 and 14 days per month. You will be one of several Ground  Instructors working for us on a part-time and self-employed basis.
