View Full Version : Job searching with Flight Aware?

02-06-2018, 02:06 PM
Granted not every plane can be tracked on flight aware especially the super important ones but does anyone use flight aware to see what planes fly in and out of your local airport and are based there in the prospects of finding a job? I've been using flight aware combined with just sitting at the airport and using the FAA registration database especially for those that can't be tracked. It usually lists an address and after some googling one can find out what kind of business it is. My hopes is if I find out where they do business I can call them up, email or facebook stalk them asking about jobs. Would rather track down the pilots on those flights but sometimes that's not always possible. But is this considered desperate where they wont even talk to me or should I be doing something different?

Fine line between tenacity and stalking.

But you may get lucky if you are what they are looking for.
