Aero-TV Special Series: Understanding The Critical …

January 12, 2009

This Episode Features A Presentation By John Dixon, Director of Pilot Recruitment for American Eagle (Part 5 Of A Series)

We’ve been hearing about it for years… a pilot shortage… a critical one, at that. For many in the aviation community, it sounded like good news… at least if you were on the bottom rungs of the pilot hiring ladder and working desperately to climb your way up.

Dixon provided the viewpoint taken by a major company that is hiring pilots now… and will definitely do so in the future.
