Earlier this year, we announced on Facebook that we would begin a variety of Professional Pilots of Tomorrow original content. However, as we continued to develop the idea, we quickly realized that it was a little too big for Facebook. We wanted to bring the best content to the PPOT community, but didn’t want to be bound by the limits of Facebook. After a few weeks of work and deliberation, we’re excited to expand PPOT into a new space. With that being said, today we’re pleased to announce the launch of Flightline Blog.
Flightline is the beginning of a new era of PPOT original content. Throughout this endeavor, we’re still going to continue to keep everybody up to date with the latest industry news and relevant postings. However, increasingly more of the content you see will be produced by some of PPOT’s accomplished leaders and mentors, written with the PPOT community in mind. We want to help our members grow as aviators, and we believe the consistent stream of original, relevant information we plan to convey will aide in that goal. Now, enough with the formalities, here’s some of the content you can look forward to on Flightline Blog:
Positive Rate - PPOT’s “Positive Rate” series focuses on ways to continuously improve our careers as aviators. “Positive Rate” is the callout used by most airline crews to indicate the aircraft is moving in the correct direction and the gear can be raised for flight. As such, the series focuses on ways to ensure our careers are continuously moving in the best direction, or in a ‘positive rate’.
The Ace It Series - “Ace It” highlights various tips and advice for helping you succeed in interviews and on checkrides. The series covers everything from common suggestions to lesser-known ideas. If you have some advice you’d like to share with fellow pilots, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Appropriate credit is always given for submissions.
From the Flight Deck - Flightline Blog’s “From the Flight Deck” series features insightful perspectives from experienced industry professionals. The series aims to explore various sides of popular aviation, sometimes in ways you’ve never thought of. If you’d like to see us cover a certain topic, you can reach Flightline Editor Cameron Shulak at email@example.com.
PPOT Features – PPOT Features will focus on what makes PPOT the organization it is: our members and the companies we work for. This series will feature our accomplished aviators, outstanding companies in the industry, and other popular figures in aviation.
The first publications to Flightline will be coming in the next few days, so stay tuned. All of our blog posts will be shared to Facebook, so make sure you’re following us there to always get the latest and greatest. Lastly, Flightline Editor and PPOT mentor Cameron Shulak wants to hear from you. We want your suggestions, comments, and feedback on the blog, and what you’d like to see us write about. As mentioned above, Cameron can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
