At this time, we have NO estimate of when or if it will reopen. If it does reopen we will open registration to FAPA.aero members first beginning with Premier Members and then Basic/Mentor Members. We'll then open it to nonmembers and post to Facebook/Twitter. Register for a membership here. Do NOT register as a member using the below button if you have no intention to speak to regional jet carriers. Walk-up registrations are always welcome to speak with regional airlines only.

4)FREE $25 Gift Certificate to StopOverStore.com for Regional ONLY registrants. Register using the below button, attend the regional portion of the Job Fair, and receive a $25 gift certificate after the Job Fair. This is for regional pilot applicants only (i.e. if you want to speak with AA you are not eligible for the gift certificate).
