Blogging competition to find next batch of AirAsia airline pilots
It’s amazing where blogging can get you these days, but if blogging about computers or promoting the Great Barrier Reef is too tame, perhaps you’d like to enter a blogging competition that could jump start a new career as a pilot.
In reality, AirAsia’s “So You Wanna Be a Pilot?” blogging competition is really just another way of picking applicants for the first round of its pilot intake in August. Passengers can rest assured that no amount of passionate prose about why bloggers wish to become pilots will excuse them from the many tests required to even begin training.
From 1st April to 15th May, entrants will need to blog the reasons that they want to become pilots, including multimedia if possible. AirAsia will pick 10 people based on their entries.
Naturally, there are a whole list of other requirements that you’ll have to fulfill if you’re going to get near an airplane’s flight controls. Blogging about it is the easy bit.

Now THAT is creative indeed! It reminds me of the techie contests Google and Microsoft used to sponsor (do they still?) to find the best of the best.
