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 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

I just wanted to thank FAPA for the gift certificate I won in a drawing back in July in Denver. I just used it to order a couple uniform items I will be needing. I also want to thank you all for the service you provide to the industry. If it wasn't for the job fair, I wouldn't have known about the opportunities.
