Airline Pilot Cover Letter Sample

Updated on: July 24, 2021

Why would an employer waste his time in interviewing you when he doesn’t like what you have written in a cover letter?

Well, one reason could be that you have actually written something so inappropriate that the employer has called you out of curiosity.

Maybe this situation isn’t that frequent but you never know what is present in the employer’s mind.

Or you could have written something which really did impress the employer – in this case, anything that has not impressed the employer can and will be held against you.

So always be careful of what you write in a cover letter for an airline pilot resume.

Mr. Roy Perry
Hiring Manager
American Airlines
8030 Anchorage Avenue
Bethany Beach, DE 75023

Dear Mr. Perry:

I am interested in speaking with you regarding a Pilot position with American Airlines. My aviation and 3000+ flying hours experience, as well as my pilot certification, have prepared me well to make a significant contribution to American Airlines.

As a passionate pilot who gives great importance to “what happens before an aircraft is in the air”, I am able to perform preflight checks myself to ensure minimization of problems when the aircraft is most vulnerable. I am exceptionally competent at reacting quickly and making vital decisions in a changing situation and possess the situational awareness that is of the utmost importance in this role.

The rest of what I have to tell you is best said in a face-to-face meeting. I will call you to see if one can be arranged soon. Alternately, you may contact me at (000) 145-5541 or piercegary @ myemail. com.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
