Louis Smith

Chairman and President of FAPA.aero

LouisSmith

Louis Smith, President of FAPA.aero, is a retired Northwest Airlines captain, completing his career flying the DC-10 on international routes.  Outside of the cockpit, Smith's vision has long been in managing businesses whose primary mission focused on publishing and organizing information that would help current and aspiring commercial pilots succeed in their career--before and after landing the cockpit job. Getting a job in commercial aviation requires more than stick-and-rudder skills, and Smith has spent the past 42 years assisting pilots in reaching their career goals by providing a one-stop shop for the information required to stay on top of this dynamic and complex industry.

Client Testimonials

Joe W.

Hired at Atlas Air

After joining FAPA, I found that Karen was extremely responsive, answering questions via text, email and phone at all hours of the day and night. Sometimes she would be on a flight herself, but as soon as she landed she was back to me right away. In my case the FAPA job fair was the lead and vital to the invitation...Karen had great advice and testimonials which helped.
