James Bailie

26-year-old James is one of the cadets in training during the show.

After he graduated with a degree in Economics from the University of Sheffield in 2014, James decided to move his career away from business and pursue his love of flying, professionally!

Before joining the easyJet pilot cadet scheme back in April 2017, James worked for almost a year at World of Whiskies in Stanstead Airport. He just loves the airport life!

His Instagram @james.bailie is unfortunately private, so we will have to get all the latest on James through the show.

She has been a First Officer since April 2018 and before then was working in a variety of jobs, including dog-walking!
