The role includes a fixed roster pattern as well as opportunities for progression to Ground Instructor, Line Training Instructor and TRI/TRE and more.

Cargo operations offer their own challenging and very rewarding flying opportunities that are very different to passenger operations. As an ATR Captain working for West Atlantic UK, you will be responsible for ensuring the safe operation of our aircraft to help our customers achieve their delivery targets so that their customers (you and me) in turn get a speedy and reliable service.

West Atlantic UK is trusted by the Royal Mail, DHL, UPS and many more to provide that reliable service. We also operate ad-hoc charters for a varied customer base from transporting car parts and musical equipment into and out of Europe to moving dangerous goods.
