It's the satisfaction in delivering outstanding work, and it's supporting the duties of the monarchy. This is what makes working for the Royal Household exceptional.

The Queen’s Helicopter Flight (TQHF) consists of a small team of pilots and ground support, providing the highest standard of helicopter service to Members of the Royal Family on official engagements.

Joining the team, you'll take on the role of either Co-Pilot or Aircraft Commander, operating a Sikorsky S76 C++ helicopter or AgustaWestland 109S.

You'll be responsible for the planning and safe execution of flights in accordance with TQHF Operations Manual.

In addition to your flying duties you'll undertake management tasks and other administrative duties, supporting the Chief Pilot.

With extensive flying experience you'll hold a CPL(H) with instrument rating, and a Class 1 medical. S-76C++ and AW109S type ratings and Corporate/VVIP experience are also highly desirable.

As a natural collaborator, you have excellent communication skills and are confident liaising with a wide range of people.

With high levels of attention to detail and time management skills, you're capable of planning accurate flight plans and are driven to operate consistently to the highest standard.

Your initiative and problem solving skills mean that you can think ahead and act proactively.

Flexibility is essential as you'll be required to undertake travel across the UK and overnight as necessary.

You can look forward to a comprehensive benefits package, including a 15% employer contribution pension scheme, 33 days annual leave, including bank holidays, and access to training and development to support your continuous professional development.
