As airline hiring continues to soar, driven by the increasing demand for travel and other factors, there has never been a better time for qualified pilots to begin the next chapter of their professional journey. Pilot career consulting company Future & Active Pilot Advisors (FAPA) is partnering with one of the largest private aviation companies in the world, Wheels Up, to host the Wheels Up Pilot Hiring Event on Wednesday, November 16, 2022, from 8 am-5 pm at the Atlanta Airport Marriott (4711 Best Road Atlanta, GA, 30337).
The Wheels Up Pilot Hiring Event follows the New York-City based company’s recent announcement of their new Member Operations Center (MOC) to open next year in Chamblee, GA and its recent partnership with Delta Air Line’s Propel Pilot Career Path Program. As part of its effort to support continued growth and expand its reach, Wheels Up is actively recruiting captain-qualified and type-rated pilots for the King Air 350i and other aircraft.
“Wheels Up, the only private aviation company on the NYSE, will hold an exclusive pilot recruiting and hiring event near the Atlanta Airport this Wednesday, November 16. Individuals with pilot-in-command experience in various aircraft are invited to register for this free event,” says Tim Genc, chief advisor and executive editor of FAPA.
Along with several scheduled presentations (8-9 am, 10-11 am, and 1-2 pm) that allow attendees to hear from and meet with the Wheels Up Talent Acquisition Team, there will be interviews for qualified candidates throughout the day. Prospective pilot candidates should have the following preferred qualifications: They should be ATP-eligible, with Wheels Up paying for the ATP-CTP Course for selected candidates, and have 2,000 hours total time with 1000 hours turbine time.
“Wheels Up has one of the most active and competitive recruiting programs in our industry. A team of dedicated aviation professionals is engaged with partners like FAPA to recruit the elite pilots our members rely on every day. Wheels Up is committed to hiring pilots who embody our company’s commitment to safety and professionalism,” says Todd Wesoloskie, senior manager of talent acquisition of Wheels Up.
The event is free for qualified pilots wishing to fly for Wheels Up, but all attendees must register. Candidates should direct any questions to Renee Wambaugh at Renee.Wambaugh@wheelsup.com.
