The Young Aviators’ Dinner will take place on on Saturday 6 April 2019 at The Royal Air Force Club, Piccadilly, London.
The 2019 dinner is supported by Boeing UK and has a continued interest to inspire and support younger members from any background in the UK to pursue a career as a professional pilot both military and civil.
This is a unique event for those looking at a career as a professional pilot and gives members of both organisations the opportunity to network and meet airline and military recruiters and representatives. Present will be the RAF recruitment and air crew selection team, Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm recruitment team, the Army Air Corps Recruitment team, as well as recruitment and flight operation representatives from UK airlines including British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and easyJet.
Captain Allister Bridger, Director of Flight Operations for British Airways has confirmed his attendance as the guest speaker for 2019. Al qualified as a pilot at the age of 17 and has logged over 11,000 hours flying on a variety of military and civilian jet aircraft. Al joined the Royal Air Force in 1985, flying the F4 Phantom II, later becoming a Hawk flying and tactics instructor.
Al left the RAF after 10 years of service to become a commercial airline pilot, initially for Air 2000. He joined British Airways in 1997 and he held both training, fleet and technical managerial positions on the Boeing 747 and 737 fleets within British Airways, including Head of Flight Operation Gatwick and Chief Pilot Boeing fleets.
