What kind of pilot jobs do Aerviva recruit for?

Our pilot jobs network caters to commercial airline pilot jobs, including airline captain jobs, pilot first officer jobs, regional airline jobs, air cargo pilot jobs, and beyond.

We work with multiple partners in the airline, charter, private, and training sectors across various jet aircraft and helicopter services. We recruit for entry level pilot jobs and experienced pilot positions, so it all depends on what the requirements are from month to month. Our recommendation is to register with us, and we can contact you with suitable roles and take it from there.

Is there a shortage of pilots right now?

As the industry started to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic in the early part of 2022, demand for staff across the aviation industry increased significantly with pilot employment at the forefront. As an example, Boeing reported European airlines must hire 6,000 trained pilots a year for the next two decades. In fact, 122,000 new aircraft pilot jobs will need to be created between now and 2041 as demand for overseas travel rebounds strongly. If you’re thinking about becoming a pilot, are graduating from flight school, or are looking for your next career move in your flying career — the future’s bright and demand is simply increasing for pilots’ jobs worldwide!

How can I secure the best contract offer?

Some pilots right now are finding themselves in the attractive position where they have 3 or 4 offers to consider as they look for the next step in their career. Ensuring you have your priorities in order, careful consideration of the pros and cons, and having a pilot staffing agency to do the groundwork on the company and offer are key to making the right choice. Read more in our news piece on how to get the best from airline pilot careers here.

What are the benefits of working on a lease basis?

Working on a contract basis for pilot recruitment agencies can give pilots several benefits, as well as freedom and flexibility to explore different opportunities and lifestyle choices. Airline pilot recruitment on a lease basis doesn’t have to be complicated and the industry is constantly looking for contract pilots for hire. We have outlined the key considerations in a short article on the subject here.

What shall I do if I have applied for a pilot job on the Aerviva website but haven’t heard back yet?
