Are you a current or former Pilot who has been placed on an enforced part-time contract, furlough, or made redundant?

If yes, you may have joined us recently on our webinar with the British Air Line Pilots Association (BALPA). To watch the webinar again, visit the BALPA website and log in, here.

Through a special arrangement with BALPA, and depending on your circumstances, Driver Hire may be able to help you to find short-term work or even a new career in logistics, if that is what you need.

Driver Hire offers a variety of services including Licence Acquisition, Training Services, and Recruitment. We have partnered with BALPA to provide current or former Pilots with access to our portfolio of services, providing you with a viable back-up career that could keep you employed until the aviation industry picks up again. We can help you gain a Goods Vehicle Licence, maintain your qualifications, and find you suitable roles within the logistics industry.

The BALPA Benevolent Fund (BBF) may also be able to offer financial support of up to £1,800 in the form of an interest-free loan, that can be used towards our services. To find out if you are eligible, or to apply, please email
