Welcome Day for pilots – family-oriented format resonates with the guests’ expectations

AirBridgeCargo Airlines, the largest cargo carrier in Russia which is among TOP 15 all-cargo airlines in the world, has held a Welcome day for pilots. Organized not for the first time, the event brought together pilots from ABC and other airlines. All those registered for the event could take their family members with them.

More than 100 guests, including kids and adults, spent this amazing day together, which was filled with interesting activities, meetings and entertainment program.  Apart from discussion of professional issues, such as employment terms, English level requirements and Q&A session with Flight Director and HR specialists, all the participants took a guided tour aboard legendary Boeing 747-8F under ‘abc pharma’ livery – specialist product within ABC to accommodate pharmaceutical products.


“We would like to thank all the guests who joined us and were not scared of this nasty weather. It is one thing to see the plane at the exhibition or air show, and completely another – to be part of individual excursion guided by chief pilots of our company, who have years-long Queen of the Skies flight time. This is invaluable experience which we are ready to share with our colleagues from other airlines and their children. 

There is no better feeling than seeing twinkle in the eyes of our little guests who admire aircraft’s dimensions, its capabilities, and find out a lot of interesting facts during this one day of their fascinating adventure at the airport, while their fathers note all the perspectives and advantages of working at ABC. For all the pilots, both from ABC and other airlines, such kind of events half-open the door to the magic aviation world showing their kids all the inside out her and now”, - highlighted Flight Director of AirBridgeCargo Airlines.


After the excursion all those interested in employment could interact with representatives of Flight department and HR informally, while their kids were immersed in aviation design creating their own livery. Who knows, one day they might become ABC pilots or famous aircraft designers!
