FAPA Holding Job Fair And Future Pilot Forum
Future and Active Pilot Advisors (FAPA) is holding a free pilot job fair and future pilot forum on Saturday, June 23, in Chicago. Topics to be covered in the forum include financing flight training, pathways for professional pilots and the outlook of the global pilot job market. Although open to everyone, the company says the forum is particularly aimed at people looking to change careers, students of all ages, parents, teachers and school counselors. The forum will run from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. and presentations will also be available on video after the event.
The job fair, which is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. the same day, is designed for pilots with a commercial certificate and more than 250 hours' flight time in either rotor or fixed wing aircraft. Airline recruiters will be present to speak with interested pilots at the event. Along with several others, confirmed job fair participants include ExpressJet, SkyWest and Republic Airline.
The company has additional forums and job fairs planned throughout the year at multiple locations around the country. Although there is no cost to attendees, registration is required for both events. FAPA is a career and financial advisory service for pilots.
