Britain’s youngest licensed pilot Ellie Carter, 16, has been offered mentorship to help her fulfill her career aspirations by EasyJet, the UK’s largest airline.

Ellie hit headlines in January 2019 after she became the youngest solo powered aircraft pilot in Britain. She also became the youngest solo glider pilot, after completing two six-minute flights on her 14th birthday.
Europe’s leading airline easyJet has offered Ellie mentoring with Line Training Captain Zoe Ebrey, as part of the airline’s ongoing efforts to attract more women into the profession. Globally, women account for just one in 20 of the world’s pilots.
EasyJet is leading the industry with its recruitment drive, with opportunities ranging from cadet pilots starting their career to experienced co-pilots and captains.
