Melbourne, FL (PRWEB) March 16, 2008
FlyContract.com, the largest aviation contractor directory currently available online marketing corporate pilots and flight attendants for contract and permanent employment, has expanded its value offering with its new job board and enhanced search functionalities.
The level of contractors on FlyContract.com is wide-ranging, from turbo props to Boeing Business Jets, which allows employers to find just the right person to fit their needs. Employers can use two free methods to locate contract pilots and flight attendants, searching the database directly and posting to the job board.
The searchable database contains comprehensive detail listings for each individual, including training, experience level, photos, resumes, contact information, and availability. Availability for each contractor is shown in a three-month window, allowing an employer to see immediate and future schedules. Employers can search for a pilot by aircraft type and sort the listings by most recently updated profiles or simulation completion date. The search results can then be narrowed based on state or country. In searching for flight attendants, employers can search by state or type of training and can also narrow the search based on that same criteria.
FlyContract.com also offers a job board where employers can post their available positions. Postings are then e-mailed directly to pilots and flight attendants in the database who meet the criteria given, and they can contact the employer directly if they are interested in the opportunity.
"FlyContract.com continues to grow at a steady pace and is endorsed by several large aviation staffing firms," said Terry Cooper, president, CEO, and creator of FlyContract.com. "As the pilot shortage grows, FlyContract.com will become an essential tool for matching pilots and aircraft. Also, as more very light jets are delivered to the industry, owners can use FlyContract.com to find mentor pilots or full-time contract pilots to assist them in flying their aircraft."
Membership to the site is $98 a year for contractors and those seeking employment. Membership includes availability calendar, color photos, and listing of up to eight aircraft for pilots. Employers can search the site and post jobs for free.
