FAPA.aero | Pilot Job Fairs - Why Attend

Job Fair Tools

Why Attend?

You should ask yourself a question - why would pilot recruiters invest their time and resources to attend a FAPA Pilot Job Fair to recruit if they didn't think it was useful in the recruitment process? The answer is they wouldn't.

FAPA Pilot Job Fairs provide you an opportunity to meet people whose job is to attract the best talent for their flight operations. It's important you meet as many recruiters as possible, since they also move to other companies within our industry, just like pilots. Our job fairs provide recruiters the ability to rate you, very similarly to how they would rate you during an interview. If you’re confident in your ability to interview, then your decision to attend should be easy.

Be sure to register in advance and bring a one-page resume highlighting your flight experience, certificates, ratings, education, and work history. FAPA requires you have at least 250 hours of total time or a commercial certificate to enter the job fair. The cost of admission is one of your resumes, so bring plenty of copies.

Hired at SkyWest Airlines

Hi Louis, Here's a quick note to say that my nephew's experience with the premium member FAPA interview preparations was excellent. He interviewed with SkyWest yesterday and was offered a job 45 minutes later. His CRJ class begins this month. He said that his mock interview and the suggestions he received from FAPA were quite valuable and that he was told that he "hit it out of the ballpark" on the HR portion of the interview. His father and I are so pleased that his aviation career is progressing so well.
