Hiring Process and Background Review
Trusted, Well-trained and Experienced Pilots
You wouldn’t hire someone to run your business without being familiar with his or her background and experience. Hiring someone to pilot a plane for you is no different, and unfortunately, the United State is facing a shortage of qualified pilots.
According to a November 2012 report in the Wall Street Journal, U.S. carriers are approaching “what threatens to be their most serious pilot shortage since the 1960s.” While the shortage is the result of myriad factors, the Federal Aviation Administration is making their requirements more stringent.
But how can you know about a contract pilot’s background? This is where our aircraft crew company, Peachtree Aviation, comes in. During our more than five years of operation, we have formed an extensive network of proven aviators. You can rest assured that when we provide you with pilot services, the pilot’s training and references have been thoroughly vetted. At Peachtree Aviation, either we or a trusted colleague has personally worked with each contract pilot with whom we place our clients. In the majority of cases, a member of our team has personally flown with the pilot.
Pilot Staffing Services
For a flat rate, we conduct all phases of the hiring process, including resume retrieval, preliminary interviews and background checks. We can do so based on a set of custom criteria that you provide — or based on our own guidelines and standards, formulated after several years of experience. In either case, we will give you a concise list of well-examined options to choose from, and you can make the final decision about who to hire.
