FAPA Future Pilot Forums

FAPA Future Pilot Forums are free career seminars providing future professional pilots of all ages with objective and independent information about a flying career. FAPA focuses on career changers, students of all ages (and their parents, teachers and school counselors) and separating military personnel (fixed wing, rotor and non-aviation) interested in learning about pathways to a career as a professional pilot.

Attendees may register below to attend in person or to view portions of the event on video. All attendees must register, including spouses, parents and siblings.

FAPA and Platinum Partner Delta Private Jets are committed to 'Building the Pilot Pipeline'™. Come meet their representatives at a FAPA Future Pilot Forum to learn more. Delta Private Jets will be attending every FAPA event!

The FAPA Future Pilot Forums are for aspiring pilots of all ages. Although everyone is invited, if you have more than 250 hours and a Commercial Certificate and are looking for a flying job, you should attend the FAPA Pilot Job Fair to speak with airline recruiters.

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 46 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

Ryan

Hired at Delta Air Lines

Hi Judy, I flew the Tarver 1 Arrival into Reno the other day and, of course, thought of you. I hope you are well and finding time to relax although I'm sure you're swamped with interview prep. All is well at Delta. Best decision I've ever made. I'm on the A320 out of NYC and really enjoying it. Thank you for helping me get here. Enjoy the pic and hope you're doing great. Warm regards, Ryan
