About the event

Check back after our August 23rd Washington, DC Future Pilot Seminar for an event schedule and list of exhibitors.

Aspiring career pilots of all ages, backgrounds, shapes, and sizes are invited to our free Future Pilot Seminars to learn about the pathways to becoming a professional pilot. School counselors are also invited – and encouraged – to attend so they can best guide their students on how to navigate an interest in flying for a living.

Our FREE seminars will cover the following:

  • State of the aviation, specifically pilot, industry
  • The path from initial training to professional pilot
  • Educational advice: college, vocational flight school, or military route?
  • The next steps necessary to launch your pilot career
  • Featured presentations and exhibits from flight schools and aviation colleges (Please check the event schedule for details)

When the presentation(s) conclude, you will have the opportunity to ask all of your questions; our goal is to send you home with the answers you need to take the next steps toward your/your student’s cockpit career. The event starts at 2:00 PM, with presentations going until 4:30 PM. All attendees must register. Please note that all future pilots' contact info will be shared with attending flight training providers for follow-up.

FAPA conducts our monthly Pilot Job Fairs and Future Pilot Seminars around the country. To view the list of upcoming events and their cities, please visit our Future Pilot Events page.

Please note that registered attendees are prohibited from recruiting students at FAPA Future Pilot Seminars; this includes handing out business cards, collecting résumés, distributing literature, or wearing clothing that advertises your flight school.
