The BA CityFlyer First Officer Placement Programme is a unique work placement and airline-funded training programme specifically designed for modular trained pilots.

The programme is being launched by BA CityFlyer in partnership with Kura Aviation, and it reflects the strong belief and value that both companies place on the skills and qualities that modular trained pilots bring to the industry.

The successful candidate will benefit from the combined opportunity to gain professional development and operational experience, before going on to airline-funded training through Kura’s BESTPILOT programme, which includes Airline Jet Transition (AJT) training delivered by Virtual Aviation.
