L3Harris’ London Training Centre welcomed the team from British Airways (BA), who shared information about the BA pilot recruitment pathway in which students can be ‘tagged’ by the airline and go on to become a First Officer for the United Kingdom’s flag carrier.
Back in July 2023, British Airways (BA) announced L3Harris Airline Academy as an accredited pilot recruitment partner. The exciting agreement allows BA to select newly qualified pilots from L3Harris’ Graduate Placement Pool as well as ‘tagging’ students in various stages of their training.
“Throughout the year, we’ve been sharing our employment statistics regularly as airlines across Europe hire L3Harris graduates. With 317 employed since 2022 alone, this new agreement with British Airways builds further on our existing airline relationships and we are now even more excited for the career prospects of our students and graduates,” said L3Harris.
