Meet the FAPA team
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.
Hi Mr. Washka,
Thanks for the information, but... I just got off the phone with Mesa
Airlines and I was just offered the FO position!
Without FAPA's job fair, it wouldn't have happened this easily. The face
to face time really got the ball rolling.
Thanks for all you do for us!
