Padpilot is looking for Chief Technical Editor

19th Jan 2022

Padpilot, the UK based and globally known developer of pilot training theory books, is looking for a Chief Technical Editor.

“Since 2011 Padpilot has driven a sea change in the quality of educational materials for aspiring airline pilots. Our interactive ebooks have been downloaded more than 250,000 times and are used by more than 130 ATOs globally.

As part of our continuing expansion programme we’re looking for a chief technical editor to assume responsibility for maintaining the high standard of our publications and raising them to even higher levels of excellence.

The role demands someone with extensive professional aviation experience as a pilot. We’re looking for someone with strong evidence of a sharp, technically curious mind and stratospheric levels of attention to detail.

(This is a permanent position and therefore, unfortunately, not suitable for someone currently furloughed and aiming to return to flying.)”

  • Analysing, evaluating and responding to technical queries from students and instructors.
  • Commissioning new content, when appropriate, from subject matter experts.
  • Writing new content, when appropriate, across a broad range of ATPL subjects.
  • Editing content for style, grammar, ease of reading, teaching flow, technical accuracy and relevance.
  • Keeping abreast of technical and operational developments in commercial aviation.
  • Keeping abreast of developments in educational best practice.
  • Conceiving and commissioning current and new forms of teaching aids to improve understanding.
  • Advising the CEO on all matters pertaining to the development of educational products and services for aspiring pilots.
  • Have an exceptional standard of fluency and competence in spoken and written English.
  • Be highly computer-literate.
  • Possess a very high level of self-discipline, attention to detail, thoroughness and perfectionism.
  • Hold, or have held, an ATPL with at least 1500 hours professional operational experience.
  • Have a broad grasp of the entire range of ATPL subjects.
  • Have a strong, instinctive passion for education.
