Direct Entry Captains
Enjoyable flying from attractive regional UK bases
Loganair, Scotland’s Airline, is the UK’s longest-serving airline still trading under its original name. Bases throughout Scotland and Norwich, support a truly unique operation and diverse route network ranging from serving Flybe’s regional hub at Manchester to flying the Twin Otter aircraft to Barra, Europe’s only scheduled service to a beach airport.
The Loganair fleet consists of 28 aircraft – Saab 2000, Saab 340, Dornier 328, Twin Otter and Islanders, with each having its own special place in our airline.
We’re seeking keen aviators to join our close-knit and friendly team as Direct Entry Captains. You must have a minimum of 3,000 hours flying experience with 500 hours PIC in a multi-crew environment. Turboprop experience is desirable but not vital. We’ll provide a type rating (under a traditional bonding arrangement); or alternatively, if you join with a valid rating on one of our aircraft types, we’re happy to discuss arrangements to help you make the transition to us.
Loganair offers a highly competitive benefit package including a defined contribution pension scheme which we believe is best-in-class for regional airlines in the UK. If you have reached the age at which you can access a pension plan from an existing or former employer (typically 55) and wish to join us towards the latter stages of your flying career to enjoy some interesting yet challenging flying before retirement, we’re also happy to discuss our ‘Flexible Retirement Contribution’ scheme which offers the opportunity to rebalance your pension contributions.
Contracts can be flexible to suit the needs of all, for example, full time, part time, permanent and/or short term.
Loganair maintains excellent safety and training standards and a strong focus on the regional communities that we serve. If you’re customer focused, interested in joining us and meet the above criteria, please email your CV for a further discussion.
