Like thousands of other pilots and aviation enthusiasts, I
will be attending AOPA’s Aviation Summit in Long Beach, California on November
11th through 13th. I gave a presentation at the Aviation Summit
last year in Tampa and promised myself that I would attend every one of them in
This year I will be giving a presentation focusing on
finding a flying job in today’s recovering pilot-hiring environment. The prospects for
obtaining a paying position in aviation are improving but it is still necessary
to develop a strategy for success.
ATP will also be holding a press conference at the Summit
along with Mountain State University to announce MSU’s new ATP Pilot Operations Bachelor’s Degree. The program allows students to pursue a degree with MSU while obtaining the best flight training available at the same time with ATP.
ATP will be hosting a booth in the exhibition hall at the Aviation Summit along with MSU, please stop by and say hello.
