Aircrew Training in Malta Takes Off

BizAv Services Ltd and Cockpit4U Aviation Service GmbH launch new approved aviation training programs and courses for pilots, cabin crew, and aircraft operators in Malta.

Bizav Services Ltd Managing Director Capt. Philip Apap Bologna announced a training partnership with the German Approved Training Organisation Cockpit4U last month and is now introducing Level D full-flight simulator training in Malta.

The EASA training in Malta will initially be offered on Airbus 320 family aircraft ranging from MCC and Jet Transition courses to Type Ratings and advanced Type Rating Instructor courses.  Crew flight training on Bombardier Challenger, Boeing, and other Airbus aircraft types are also offered through the BizAv Cockpit4U partnership at specialised crew training facilities in Berlin, Germany.

INTERVIEW TECHNIQUES WEBINAR – TOP TIPS

Research. Thoroughly research the company, the vacant position and key personnel by accessing open source material, such as company annual reports, promotional material, job descriptions and company social media platforms and website. Get a good understanding of who they are, what they do and what they represent: this will assist you in writing your CV and to perform well on interview.

Confirm Suitability. Before responding to a Job Post ensure that you fully understand the nature of the job: achieved through research. Consider generating a table that highlights the key criteria that the company is searching for and which clearly shows that you match/possess those skills.

Social Media. Ensure your social media footprint is actively managed (and protected) and that open source material is positive, non-prejudicial and presents the right image. If your content is at odds with the company’s moral standards and ethics, they will discount your application.

Interaction with the Company. Be professional throughout the process: be accurate, responsive and courteous in all your dealings with all company personnel. Provide the exact information requested (if the company asks for a handwritten cover letter, then send them one) a failure to do so questions your commitment, attention to detail and ability to respond to simple requests.

Rehearse. Most interview questions are predictable and can be anticipated ahead of the interview, so research stock answers and prepare your own personalised responses. Practice delivering your answers using video and possibly asking a friend to act as the interviewer: role play can be extremely useful. Be mindful of not only your verbal delivery (volume, tone, pitch, pause, etc) but your body language (more on this later).

What to Wear. Select your outfit well in advance, so that it is one thing less to worry about. Dress conservatively as it is always better to be over-dressed than under-dressed. Avoid extremes such as wearing too much perfume or wearing too many designer logos.

Work Portfolio/Evidence Pack. It is recommended that you generate several evidence packs, which contain evidence of your achievements, examples of work and confirmation of experience. Ensure they are professionally generated and that the pack is generated in chronological order which matches the sequence of your CV.

Conduct on Interview. Your aim is to make a connection and build rapport. This can be achieved by being friendly, confident, energetic, positive and attentive. Make eye contact and use names throughout to make a connection. Listen carefully to what is being said and seek clarification if you do not understand what is being asked.

Post Interview. Consider your performance, be honest with yourself and identify were you could have done better. Make notes of the key issues and discussion points so that you can use them to write a follow-up e-mail, which is designed to keep you ‘top-of-mind’, to reinforce your suitability for the position and to restate your interest in the post. Finish by thanking the company for their time. If you do not hear back from the company within the declared timeframe, then follow-up with a telephone call.

The New Normal. The impact of CORONA upon recruitment will be long-lasting, where a greater reliance on video conferencing to conduct at least part of the interview process will become the new normal. Ensure that you are fully conversant with the software, that you ’test the tech’ well in advance of the interview and remove any distractions.

Tax Benefits for Maltese Air Operator Certificate Holders

Since joining the EU, Malta has seen significant growth in the services industries namely in the Financial, Gaming and Aviation sectors. These services are playing an important role in the Maltese economy and various local governments have enacted legislation to support these industries.  As these services are relevantly new to the island, local know-how is not readily available and as a result the country needs to entice highly qualified people from outside the country. The latest of these Legal Notices is the Highly Qualified Persons Rules which include specifically the Aviation sector. Coming into effect on the 1st January 2012, essentially this legislation provides for a tax rebate to person employed with a Maltese Air Operator Certificate holder who are not domiciled in Malta. Effectively, ‘Eligible’ positions would pay only a 15% tax rate on their income in Malta if there income exceeds €80,100 annually. For our detailed report please send us an e-mail to malta-office@bizav.eu

BizAv Gets IS-BAO Auditor Accreditation

The International Business Aviation Council has on the 16th June 2011 accredited BizAv and their director Adrian Spiteri with IS-BAO Auditor Accreditation.

The International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) was formally introduced and made available to the business aviation community at the European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibit (EBACE) in Geneva, May 2002. IS-BAO was developed by the industry for the benefit of the industry. It is a code of best practices designed to help flight departments worldwide achieve a high level of safety and professionalism. On the IBAC website one can find information on the benefits of IS-BAO and how to obtain a copy. In addition, the site describes the process used to keep the standard dynamic and current with new equipment and procedures. Flight departments interested in obtaining a Certificate of Registration will find information in the audit page regarding the process for choosing a Registrar and how to apply for a Certificate. The IS-BAO audit program commenced in the fourth quarter of 2002. IBAC has awarded Certificates of Registration to many flight departments that have successfully met the IS-BAO standard as verified by an accredited auditor.
