FAQ's

Why pick SimCheck Advanced Simulator and Flight Training Center to prepare you for a career as a professional corporate or airline pilot?

First of all I would encourage every aspiring pilot to do their research -- start at the top and work down. When you are looking for job it's important to find out what your future employer is seeking in qualifications. Start with the regional airlines or corporate flight departments and find out what qualifications will make you very competitive for employment in their eyes. Go to job fairs and talk to representatives from organizations like Women in Aviation, Air, Inc. and the Black Airline Pilots Association. They hold conventions that the regional and major airlines attend to recruit pilots for immediate new hire classes or to recruit good prospects that have not completed their training but will be available in six months or a year from now. This is an opportunity to talk to a pilot recruiter and make your face, personality and qualifications known to the recruiters. Believe me as a pilot recruiter, a very high number of new hires are hired right from these job fairs. As recruiters, we remember the faces and the personalities especially if we see you several times at these job fairs. It tells us you are committed to the industry.

Flight Ops.Com (fltops.com) is made up of airline professionals and has a commitment in helping current airline pilots and aspiring pilots make important career decisions. Check out all these organizations before you make a decision. It makes sense to plan your career as carefully as you plan a flight. Listen to professionals that have “been there done that” and let them guide you through the critical decisions throughout your career. You need to build turbine time, not Internet time. FLTops.com is a refreshing respite from the cluttered, angry madness so common on aviation websites. FLTops.com is a good source of unbiased information for picking a flight training school or guidance that can help you navigate this crazy business and insure that your career goes as smoothly on the ground as it does in the air.
