Ron - First Officer Ryanair


'I attended the one day airline interview preparation course and it was an eye opening. After spending nearly £60000 on my training, I had no idea what to expect on my interview. I was very lucky that friend of mine recommended the course.I know fly for Flybe and I am sure without AviationShake's help I would be still looking for a job. Again a massive thank you!

Ben - First Officer Flybe

'Going for CTC assessment I had no idea how to prepare and where to start, so I failed at my first attempt. I then discovered AviationShake and it was the most valubale day I had in terms of professional development. I have learnt which transferable skills use from school and activities and how important are my personal reasons for flying. Thanks guys.' 

Steven -  CTC Cadet

'Thank you for all your help, I was able to work through my examples with you and understand what skills should I present.

George - First Officer Monarch

'Amazing preparation I always thought my licence is enough to get me a job. After 4 years since my flight training I finally was called for an interview (thanks to your extensive help with my CV) and my interview went really well. I structured my answers using the techniques and had plenty of examples prepared. Thank you guys so much. I hope you will be flying with me soon :-)

Jon - Flybe
