Pilot Hiring Fairs in the US
Wednesday, July 04, 2007
When a prospective student calls Phoenix East Aviation with questions, one of those questions is often "are airlines hiring pilots?"
The answer is an unequivocal "Yes." For example, and just one example of many, (see other blog articles on this subject), more than 400 pilots recently met 70 representatives from 32 major, national, regional, foreign, fractional and crew leasing airlines for the first Airline Pilot Career Seminar, Airline Forum, and Job Fair, held at the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport.
Pilots met with key hiring representatives of airlines. Air Tran, for example, spoke with 135 pilots and set up nearly 50 interviews to be conducted in their Atlanta offices. Republic Airlines spoke with attendees and even interviewed pilots on the spot.
AIR, inc. predicts 8,500 or more new airline pilot jobs will be created in 2007 -- new jobs -- which is even more than the 8,200 new jobs created in 2006. And the airlines are not anywhere near finishing hiring -- they're actually just beginning to ramp up: there will be another such job fair in Los Angeles soon.
