Your day will start with the flight from London Gatwick Airport to Paris and returning to Birmingham. After reaching Birmingham you will have the chance to step out of the flight deck, relax, have a light sandwich lunch and have a chat about your flight while your aircraft is prepared for your next two sectors. From Birmingham you will fly to Zurich in Austria which is tucked into the mountainous region of the Eastern Alps and is close to the border with Germany.
As Captain of those flights you will be provided with flight plans and navigation charts. Along with your experienced First Officer, you will run through the flight plan, check the real weather and prepare for each flight.
On the flight deck you and your first officer will set up the aircraft ready for each departure. You will need to make sure the aircraft has the correct amount of fuel for the flight, the flight management computer is correctly programmed and the weather has not changed. After each take off you will be monitoring the aircraft systems, following the flight plan and preparing for the decent and the arrival into your destination.
We can amend the flight plan as required.
