    Just listened to the programme and I have a great interview with an Airbus Pilot in Europe in how he got into the front seat. It may help some of the listeners understand how to get to be an airline pilot in the UK.

    It should appear on an Across The Pond segment in 2 weeks time.

    Be safe – Pieter
