Ireland's national airline Aer Lingus is once again offering to train aspiring commercial pilots for free.

Is aviation your calling but you're unsure how to get your career off the ground?

Aer Lingus is currently recruiting inexperienced pilots whom they will allocate an allowance to as they train them for 14 months. As pilot training programs usually cost six figures, this is bound to be a highly sought after opportunity.

The only catch? You have just six days left to apply.

The airline is searching for aspiring pilots who will eventually become entry-level first officers aboard the Airbus A320 and A321 LR NEO models.

This isn't the first time Aer Lingus has carried out a recruitment drive like this. In fact, the airline's mentorship program has been in place for decades.

According to Business Insider, Aer Lingus' announcement comes at a time where there is a worldwide pilot shortage.

Their unique program will start with a 14-month intensive training program at an independent flight training school, selected and paid for by Aer Lingus, which will grant successful applicants a Multi Pilot's Commercial License.

After an additional 12 weeks of training in Dublin on the A320, fledgling pilots will be all set to take control of the cockpit.

Salaries for Aer Lingus pilots usually start at 72,000 ($86,541). If for some reason the newly minted pilots who come through the program decide not to work with the airline, the onus will be on them to repay the training costs.

Lastly, to apply, the airline specifically outlines that people who are "technically-minded, mature, responsible, and committed to succeed" are the ideal candidates.

Aside from that, you must be over 18, fluent in English, and have the right to live and work in the EU.
