Fltops.com is hosting a career fair in Atlanta, and hiring airlines are expected to attend. Also featured will be a “focus on the future” session catering to pilots thinking about starting a career, or looking for information on various flight school and academies.
According to fltops.com, at least 14 companies are expected to attend, many of them ready to hire pilots on the spot. Many will be regional airlines, who are hiring as many as 20 pilots a month, a clear indication that the airline hiring freeze is thawing.
The career fair’s “focus on the future” session begins in the afternoon, and includes seminars, exhibits from flight schools and academies, and the option to meet one-on-one with pilot recruitment experts.
The career fair will take place Aug. 28 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Atlanta Airport Marriott Gateway. The admission fee is $139 for nonmembers and $119 for members, including lunch. For those wishing to attend only the “focus on the future” session, it begins at 12:30 p.m. and is free.
