NBAA Flight Plan Podcast - onboarding airline pilots

Onboarding airline pilots

Airline furloughs resulting from COVID-19 have led to a rise in the number of air carrier pilots now seeking new opportunities in business aviation. How should flight department managers prepare for onboarding airline pilots?

“In addition to flying proficiency and quantitative experience, it’s also important to look at the applicant from a holistic approach,” noted NBAA Domestic Operations Committee Chairman Jason Herman. “What type of experience and skills do they have, both inside and potentially also outside of the cockpit?”

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Lisa Archibald, CAM, Delta Air Lines first officer and a volunteer on Delta’s Master Executive Council
  • Jason Herman, CAM, chair of NBAA’s Domestic Operations Committee
  • Jennifer Pickerel, vice president at Aviation Personnel International
