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.
For more aviation career information, check out AOPA’s Flight Training blog, where airline pilot Chip Wright writes about the lifestyle and how to get in the door.
Flight Training Editor Ian J. Twombly joined AOPA in 2003 and is an instrument flight instructor.
As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
The Aircraft Spotlight feature looks at an airplane type and evaluates it across six areas of particular interest to flying clubs and their members: Operating Cost, Maintenance, Insurability, Training, Cross-Country, and Fun Factor.
