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.

Client Testimonials

Hired at Atlas Air

After joining FAPA, I found that Karen was extremely responsive, answering questions via text, email and phone at all hours of the day and night. Sometimes she would be on a flight herself, but as soon as she landed she was back to me right away. In my case the FAPA job fair was the lead and vital to the invitation...Karen had great advice and testimonials which helped.
