I am glad that you took the trouble of verifying the authenticity of this request.
We do not charge our prospective employees.
Besides, it is impossible for us to employ a pilot without undergoing a test from our Director of Flight Operations.
Somebody obviously was trying to con you.
Please ignore the so-called Mr. Jones and his request.
You may send your CV for onward transmission to the Director of Flight Operations.
Thank you for your interest in our airline.
