Hi Air NZ Team, 

After training to be an aircraft engineer, what kind of work/how high up could a person expect to be after 3 years?

thanks.

Pilots can have a sign on time as early as 3.00am in the morning or a late sign on of 10.00pm in the evening.  The hours are varied and can be at any time of the day or night.

[about two years. then you have to get your hours up before you can apply to work for a commercial airline

newly qualified pilots can gain work either as a flight instructor, in tourism such as flying skydiving planes or agriculture is another common pathway to get their hours up to the number required to apply to a commercial airline

ideally maths (with calculus), physics and English or another words rich subject such as history or geography

good hand/eye co-ordination, attention to detail. having a couple of flying lessons as early as possible is also a good idea.

I've heard that you have to be a certain height and weight to be considered to be cabin crew - is this true for all airline or only some? Does this apply to people wanting to train with Air NZ?

Thanks.

an apprenticeship takes 4-5 years to complete.  You are also encouraged to sit your Licensed Exams and then you can sign off work - how high up depends very much on the individual and how dedicated & committed to their work they are!

Hi Air NZ, 
How long does it take to become a flight hostess? And how long does it take to become an inflight manager?

Do you train people straight from school or do they have to have some other training first?

For height you need to be able to reach the overhead lockers & safety equipment - usually in the 5ft to 6ft 2 or 3 inches.  With regards to weight, a prospective employer needs to see that someone looks healthy and is able to look after themselves.  An airline wants someone to create a good impression in their uniform.

Our Airline Customer Service Programme is a good starting point for someone interested in becoming a flight attendant.  It is important to already have some customer service experience such as part time jobs whilst still at school.  The more customer service experience someone has, the stronger their chances of being successful in employment as a flight attendant.  The time it takes to become an in flight manager depends on the individual and having the correct attitude to work, being dedicated & motivated.  Many graduates of our Airline Customer Service Programme are now in flight managers having flown for a couple of years.
