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 United Airlines

Thanks for the great service FAPA provided me. Sitting down with Claudette a few days before the interview is definitely what helped me get the job offer. I will recommend the premium service to anyone that's interested for sure. Thanks again. Thank you (and Judy) so very much for your help, encouragement, and kind words along the way. Your tips and hints helped more than I realized, and will also do me well in future similar pursuits. Received a phone call today from United and I will start class… (in July) on the 737. Thanks again for all of your help! Couldn't have done it without you!
