Do you think the benchmarks for resume writing are similar across industries? May be. For now, however, we've put together a few tips on how to write a perfect pilot resume. The set of these standards is now the key to furor in some of the largest airlines in the world.

Aviation recruiters receive hundreds of resumes weekly and spend less than 20 seconds reviewing a pilot resume before making a decision. The decision about whether it is worth talking to you in principle, or rejecting your resume immediately.

The professional obligations of a civil aviation pilot include

  • preparation, organization and implementation of the flight;
  • control and testing of flight equipment;
  • study of the features of the route of the upcoming flight;
