Letter from the Publisher

Photo Contributed by: United Airlines Multimedia Designer, Alicia Varga

Dear Readers,

Just a few weeks ago, Aero Crew Solutions (this publication’s parent company) visited United Airlines in their newly renovated Flight Training Center in Denver, Colorado. We were there to assist them with conducting their first-ever Pilot Career Expo.

United Airlines has on file over 8,000 applications and highly qualified applicants were invited to attend. This fact answers the number one question that I have received since United announced this Career Expo: How can I be invited?  Leadership, going above and beyond, education, flight time and contributing outside of the cockpit are a few of the areas that make an individual stand out and remain competitive in their process.

Over the years, Aero Crew News has published many articles on the topic of making your application stand out among others. I recommend you look through our archives and that you talk to those who can mentor you in the process. It’s no surprise that, in all aspects of life and in particular in pursuit of one’s career, being in the top tier pays.

Fly safe, and submit your application!
