Sample Aircraft Pilot Cover Letter

Notice how the applicant in this aircraft pilot cover letter focuses on her ability to fly, to manage people, to provide a calm and safe atmosphere for passengers and to direct crew members, as necessary. She is not merely a 'driver.' Aircraft pilots need to be able to communicate effectively with personnel as well as passengers. Therefore, aircraft pilot cover letters should include this essential information.

Dear Mr. Roberts:

I am applying for an aircraft pilot position as announced on aviationjobsworldwide.org. I have earned my wings as a private pilot over the past five years. I have escorted business executives, guests, and company personnel to cities and events throughout the country.

I have an excellent record, recognition from clients, and favor with various small airports across the Midwest. In addition I served in the United States Air Force for ten years where I received my pilot training. I am writing this cover letter to introduce myself and to ask for an opportunity to meet with you in person to discuss filling one of your three openings for aircraft pilots. I take pride in my ability to provide safety, ease, and comfort in the air, as well as to manage passengers and crew members with professionalism.

Please call me on my cell phone: 888-888-8888 if you'd like to meet to discuss my qualifications and your requirements. I can work my schedule to fit your calendar.
