Professional Pilots, High Schoolers to attend Seminar / Job Fair Event
Honolulu, January 23, 2012: Airline pilot careers begin with an inspiration, and really take off when the airline interviews the qualified pilot. FltOps.com, the premier provider of career and financial advice to professional pilots, is putting the spectrum together on Saturday, January 28, 2012.
Professional pilots will be attending the “Expats in Paradise” global pilot hiring fair at the Ala Moana Hotel (310 Atkinson Drive, Honolulu – 808-955-4811), where they will be attending professional seminars on their own job placement searches and interviewing with the hiring personnel from the airlines. Confirmed already are Hawaii-based Crew Resources Worldwide (the lead sponsor), Korean Air, Emirates, Total Aviation Service, and Qatar Airlines, among others expected to attend.
Airline employment for Hawaii residents is attractive even if the permanent job is located on the mainland or overseas. The airlines provide generous industry travel benefits, allowing employees to stay connected to their island home.
High school students interested in airline careers as pilots, flight attendants, mechanics, and other professionals will be treated to “Focus on the Future” seminars, where they and their parents will meet with representatives from professional aviation training schools and universities.
As a recent Boeing release says, “As the world commercial fleet expands to more than 39,500 airplanes over the next 20 years, the world's airlines will need to add 460,000 pilots and 650,000 maintenance technicians…” The outlook for high schoolers with an interest in aviation is sky-high!
Registration for the Focus on the Future seminars is online only (www.fltops.com/jobs ) and the doors open at 12:30; the seminars, offering advice on careers, employment projections, and loans, grants and scholarships, run from 1:00 to 5:00. Parents, guardians, and school counselors are also encouraged to attend.
