Default Air Inc.

How can I gather any information about Air Inc (fair)?
Any website out there?
Does anybody has a schedule on when the next one is going to be?

Thanks...

For myself, I've been to 5 fairs through the years and never got a call that I would jump ship for. I simply see it as a cattle call. Get as many pilot in one room, that all look the same, so you can do your dance and give your resume to some HR or Line pilot. Its not worth the money you have to pay just to attend. With the new way of Apps and CV/Online going throught the Internet to apply for a job. Its alot easier these days and faster to apply. Try your luck and experience a jobfair. You will do it once and say you did. Do your networking and meet as many people through your travels, take business card and stay in touch with these people. Stay positve and keep your flying job. You are 100% more likely to find a flying job without having to pay for a jobfair. good luck

Never had a worthwhile job offer. Save your money and do your own networking. Should you go to one. Play the game and meet your fellow pilots there and make connections and keep in touch with these guys and gals. You will get alot more information and leads for jobs through these new friend. Good Luck

Default Try your luck!

I went to one down in MIA in Jan this year which was put on by AeroServices. Its FREE and you get to meet and greet some OK flying jobs. Not as big as Air Inc. But its Free!!! Most importantly you meet alot of pilots doing the same thing. Alot can be learned and job offer do happen. I would attend and Open/House-JobFair through AeroServices and see where that takes you. Good luck
