Dear Ms. Sauer,
I would like to take this opportunity to apply for the First Officer position now available at Silver Airways.
I gained experience as a pilot in the military and I would like the opportunity to utilize my skills and training to their fullest potential by obtaining this position with your company. I know and adhere to the Federal Aviation Regulations and I have the ability to learn and adhere to all of your company’s procedures and policies.
I have the skills and knowledge to help keep the pilot informed of any changes in operations and the ability to take on the responsibilities of the pilot in the event of an emergency. I have experience inspecting equipment and going through all of the safety checks when preparing the flight for takeoff.
I have experience flying in all types of weather and know when the conditions are too dangerous to take off and how to take evasive measures when faced with an emergency. I have excellent organizational, interpersonal and leadership skills with the ability to motivate and manage the crew to ensure passengers have a good experience when flying with your company.
I also have the ability to help resolve any issues that do arise with the aircraft or passengers. My military training has prepared me for this position and I am confident that I can handle the aircraft in a safe and professional manner to ensure the safety of its passengers and crew.
You can reach me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555 and I hope to meet with you soon to discuss the details.
