PilotPool.com, ATP Flight School’s pilot recruitment tool, is now available for all pilots.
According to ATP, airlines are struggling to find qualified applicants, and PilotPool allows them to connect with qualified job seekers. A proprietary hour-tracking system alerts hiring staff when an applicant has reached the minimums, giving the applicant the best chance of success and recruiters the ability to digest the applicants quickly and easily.
Registration is free, and currently 12 airlines have access to applicants.
PilotPool is a companion site to ATP’s PilotJobs.com, a blog that centers around airline hiring news and updates. It also features interview and resume advice.
