Tradewind Aviation Joins PPOT’s Low-Time Networking Program

Cameron Shulak

     Professional Pilots of Tomorrow is excited to announce Tradewind Aviation as the latest addition to the PPOT Low-Time Accelerated Networking Program. The Networking Program allows PPOT mentees who meet specific qualifications the ability to network with airlines who are interested in hiring lower time pilots. Although the program doesn’t guarantee job offers or interviews, it offers a great way to build a relationship with a potential employer. That being said – as we often discuss – successful networking and a good professional presentation can reap a wide range of benefits.

     Tradewind Aviation is ‘headquartered in Oxford Connecticut with operational bases at Westchester County Airport in New York and San Juan International Airport in Puerto Rico, [and] operates both on-demand private charter and scheduled “Shuttle” service throughout the U.S. and Caribbean.’ (www.flytradewind.com) Their diverse network of shuttle operations moves passengers throughout vibrant areas of the Coastal Northeast U.S. and the Caribbean, utilizing their impressive PC-12 aircraft. The PC-12 is an advanced turboprop aircraft manufactured by Pilatus and boasts impressive versatility and reliability. Additionally, Tradewind maintains an active charter operation on the Citation CJ3 for customers seeking the additional convenience and service. The CJ3, manufactured by Cessna, is an industry leading light business jet, great for regional trips or even vacations in the Caribbean.

     Tradewind is an excellent opportunity for pilots seeking to gain valuable experience at a quality airline. The state of the art aircraft provides a chance for pilots to greatly expand their knowledge and experience as aviators. The rigor and dynamic nature of the operation hone pilots’ skills and help them grow as aviators. Tradewind offers advancements opportunities within their operation and offers a wide range of attractive benefits for their employees.

     Depending on their experience and qualifications, pilots may have the opportunity to connect with Tradewind through the Accelerated Networking Program. The program is open to PPOT Mentors and Mentees and is administered by the PPOT Pilot Development Team.

Introducing Flightline Blog

Professional Pilots of Tomorrow

     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 cameron.shulak@theppot.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 cameron.shulak@theppot.org.

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 cameron.shulak@theppot.org.
