Pilot Opportunities

OSM Aviation is a company of the future. As airlines battle for position in the marked, OSM Aviation will offer a safe haven with opportunities for pilots beyond what an airline can offer today.

OSM Aviation will strive to open opportunities for our crews in every relevant part of the industry - both geographically and professionally. We recognize collective bargaining and generally offer great benefits for all. This will assure the security and lifestyle you are looking for.

A new way of thinking!

I am not a pilot yet, should I register?

Absolutely! – OSM Aviation aim to be an integrated part of the future of aviation. We will select, train, and offer the industry the pilots of tomorrow. Once you have been through our selection and training, you can consider yourself one of the best in the industry, and with some of the best choices.


How do I prepare for the pilot selection?

Whether you are a current pilot or applying for one of our new pilot “Ab Initio” programs, there is a series of standards you will need to pass. Preparing for these is like preparing for any other test; look at the literature on the topics, practice taking similar tests, read up on professional knowledge, and etcetera. Also, practice your English if you are not a native speaker.

For all categories, we will look at:

  • Educational and job background
  •  Aptitude (testing your general ability for the job)
  •  Personality (assuring acceptable personality traits displayed)
  •  Medical (you must be able to obtain a pilot class one medical certificate)
  •  Technical (testing technical aptitude for new pilots and technical tests and/or interview for professional pilots)
  •  Behavior (behavioral interviews and group exercises will test motivation and areas of competency generally needed for the job as a pilot)
  •  Simulator exercise (testing in a real simulator is a job sample for a professional and test of general aptitude for a new pilot)
  •  English language skills (ICAO require a good level of English to certify a pilot)
