Creating the future together with Swiss Air




818

Even in the time of Global Aviation Recession  SWISS is looking for employees who will make their mark in our multi-cultural teams. People who will encourage open and collaborative dialogue together with constructive criticism. Team members who will achieve mutual goals with dynamism and energy. Welcome to SWISS Air.

Pilot profile

The cockpit crew of a SWISS Airliner consists of at least two people: the Captain, also called the Commander, is ultimately responsible for his or her crew, operation and the aircraft. The First Officer (or Co-Pilot) is Second-In-Command and supports the Captain in all matters. It is routine for both captain and first officer to fly the plane in turns.

No day is ever quite the same

An Airline Pilot’s field of activity is very varied and begins with flight planning, weather analysis and calculating take-off: an in-depth knowledge of the aircraft technology is therefore essential. As the person in charge and decision-maker in a complex technical environment, the captain takes daily responsibility for his or her crew and passengers. During the flight, severe weather conditions and complex navigation, among other things, provide a challenge.

As Pilot, you represent SWISS and act as a manager would, albeit in a rather unusual professional workspace. You coordinate the operation of numerous interfaces both domestically and abroad, and make sure that the flight proceeds efficiently and safely. The role of Pilot is a fascinating one, and requires a high degree of service awareness, linguistic competence, flexibility, decisiveness and an interest in complex and networked technology. Your dream job will play out on an international stage, and each flight will be an experience in itself.

Career
After completing his or her training at SWISS Aviation Training (SAT), a Pilot will enter professional life at SWISS as a first officer on short flights. After a few years, Pilots are assigned to SWISS global long-haul routes where they will Pilot an Airliner as second-in-command and manage the entire flight operation together with the commander. A few years on, and after further training modules, the Pilot will take the most significant step of his or her career and qualify as commander – the captain of the plane.

Becoming a Pilot

Those who match up to SWISS requirements and pass the aptitude test stand a good chance of getting a contract as well as financial support from SWISS.

Aptitude test and selection procedure
All applicants must go through a multi-stage selection procedure to become a Pilot at SWISS. The various stages assess the candidate’s intelligence, aeronautical talent, medical condition, personal suitability and knowledge (e.g. geometry, physics and maths). No previous aeronautical knowledge is required in order to pass the aptitude test.

One particular aptitude test for all Pilot training pathways is offered by SPHAIR. SPHAIR is an air force training platform supported by the federal government that is designed to enable young Swiss citizens aged between 17 and 20 to get into the aviation industry. SPHAIR offers a multi-stage aptitude test comprising an assessment of performance and knowledge as well as a 2-week aeronautical training period. Interested parties can find out all about being a professional Pilot and gain some initial flying experience. The courses are run by experienced specialists in civil aviation and the air force.

SWISS recognises the SPHAIR certificate, and offers a simplified selection procedure for applicants who include the appropriate SPHAIR certificate and performance appraisal (minimum requirement “recommended unreservedly for training as a professional Pilot”) with their application. Although these applicants have to go through the entire process just like all the other candidates as the first stage of the procedure is not selective, SPHAIR applicants will be invited to the second test stage regardless of their test results.

Training at SWISS Aviation Training
After successfully passing the aptitude test, trainee Pilots will undergo an 18 to 23-month training period depending on their course. Training involves subjects such as Radio Navigation, Flight Instruments and Human Performance and Limitations, as well as corporate training modules withcompanies such as Skyguide and Meteo Schweiz.

Basic training is divided up into theory modules, flight phases and training in the simulator. During the flight phases, the trainees will initially fly single-engine planes, followed by twin-engines, both domestically and abroad. Successful completion of training at SWISS AviationTraining is normally followed by a Type Rating Training (training on a particular type of aircraft), and then a route introduction at SWISS.
