Importance of Pilot Networking and Recommendations In Getting a Pilot Job

Importance of Pilot Networking and Recommendations In Getting a Pilot JobOne of the biggest differentiators in getting a job, pilot job included, is having connections. How well are you connected? Employers will pay a special attention to pilot recommendations in their normal hiring process. Embrace this fact early and begin networking. Go to job fairs, visit the big airline pilot forums, jumpseat on your future airline of choice, and always have business cards handy. These actions could be the single greatest determinant to your success in landing the job you most desire.

Aviator Flight Training Academy Faculty & Instructors

Faculty and Flight Training Instructors are hired directly from the ranks of our graduating student population and have more than 200 hours of multi-engine flight time. The Faculty at Aviator College hold a minimum of a Bachelors Degree and teach all flight training, classroom based courses. The Academy Flight Instructors are hired directly from the ranks of Aviator graduates. The Flight Training Instructors work one-on-one with their students in the air. Students often complete the entire program with the same Flight Training Instructor, which allows them to find a comfortable relationship and learn faster. Flight Training Instructors are available to fly with students 24 hours-a-day, rain or shine. We encourage our Flight Training Instructors to provide actual instrument flight time with their students whenever possible to gain real-world experience. Our Flight Training Instructors continue to grow in their skills while flying in the high density traffic operations of Florida’s airspace.
