There's just something about flying. Ignoring all the doom and gloom surrounding the airline industry, young people continue to flock toward careers in aviation, according to the Daytona Beach News Herald's coverage of a recent aviation career fair. The News Herald sent a reporter to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's annual career fair and found optimism at every turn. "The demand will be there in five years," said future airline pilot Brian McCasey. "The objective is to get in now." Although some airlines are having a tough time, many GA businesses are flourishing, according to Michelle Ross, the human resources coordinator for World Airways, a Georgia-based charter operator. She said the business has been profitable for 18 months and needs more pilots and ground crew. And while there are any number of solid, practical reasons to look for a job in aviation, Phil Roberts, vice president of the staid management-consulting firm Unisys, said many people are drawn by the excitement and adventure of the business.
