Miami Jan 9, 2013 — Pan Am International Flight Academy will be participating in the Global Pilot Career Conference & Job Fair being held in Miami Florida January 11-12, 2013, where airlines will be making presentations on their companies and holding job interviews for open pilot positions.
Fridays scheduled events are focused solely on large Commercial Jet opportunities, followed up by Saturday’s agenda including pilot opportunities in the Regional Jet market.
Along with world training leader Pan Am, airlines participating in the convention include: All Nippon Airways, United Airlines, Air China, Okay Airways, Skymark Airlines, as well as a half dozen others. Airborne Global, representing China’s Postal Service will also be interviewing candidates to fly mail routes there.
 “Pan Am has been invited to participate to provide pilots participating in interviews with information and training options,” states Gregory Darrow, Pan Am International Flight Academy’s Senior Director of Sales and Marketing.  “We’re the bridge between the job applicant and the airline. Our job is to help these pilots complete any lacking certifications or training to close the gap and seal the deal. We’re also there to support the airlines, many of whom are our clients who we provide regular training for.”
Convention organizer FAPA (Future and Active Pilot Advisors) is anticipating a large crowd for this two day Job Fair. In recent years, there has been a shortage of qualified pilots, especially overseas in Asia where growth has outpaced training. The Chinese have sought to solve this problem by looking for qualified pilots in the U.S. who are willing to work abroad.
Pan Am recently returned from China as an official delegate of the U.S. Aviation Trade Mission seeking to build on the aviation business rapidly growing there. Headquartered in Miami Florida, Pan Am is one of the largest and most experienced pilot and airline training organizations, with its origins in Pan American World Airways. The company offers airlines and individuals training on over 60 full-flight simulators with courses for Pilots, Flight Attendant, Cabin Crew, ATC, Mechanic, and Aircraft Dispatchers.
Pan Am will be holding a drawing each day during the fair to award a Boeing 737 or Airbus 320 Type rating.  Entries forms and information can be found at the Pan Am booth. Winners will be able to choose between either fleet type.

Miami Oct. 29, 2012  — Pan Am International Flight Academy recently completed a successful exhibition as a key exhibitor and presenter at CAATS in Sanya, China, the Civil Aviation Administration of China’s first Ab-Initio Training Symposium.

The CAATS Summit experienced a crowd of over 300 key aviation professionals and airline executives, as well as senior CAAC officials who addressed China’s exploding demand for trained pilots and the need for fast development of reliable flight training programs and facilities. Although meeting the demands for well-trained pilots is a global issue, there is a particular urgency in meeting China’s internal needs.

Pan Am International Flight Academy participated in the Summit as one of a handful of training academies with CAAC Certification, providing training to the region through their training partner, Panda Fight Academy in Tokyo, Japan.

Mr. Gregory Darrow, Senior Director of Sales and Marketing for Pan Am was in attendance, and summarized: “ There was an huge amount of energy and anticipation for this show, organized by the Chinese who are very committed to increase their capacity to field qualified pilots and meet their demands. We are pleased that Pan Am was received so enthusiastically because of our training options and capabilities in the region.”   

The company received strong attention from Asian carriers interested in their core competencies and Asian training solutions including CAAC Type Rating programs, Airline Crew Training, Cabin Crew, Dispatcher, Aircraft Maintenance, ATC, and Aviation English Training.  In addition, the training academy has the most diverse fleet of full-motion simulators in the world, and offers B737-300, B737NG, B747-400, B767-300, B777, and A320 full-motion simulators for booking immediately in Tokyo.

October 12, 2011 — Denver  Pan Am International Flight Academy, Denver, was recently awarded the Export Achievement Certificate by the Denver office of the U.S. Commercial Services Division, a branch of the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Pan Am joined the ranks of an elite group of Export Achievement Certificate recipients. This prestigious award is presented to Denver enterprises that successfully enter the international marketplace.
"We don't give out many of these awards," stated Danielle Blakely, Senior International Trade Specialist of U.S. Commercial Service Denver. "The Export Achievement Certificate is reserved for exceptional companies like Pan Am. In fact, we've only given out one other certificate this year," comments Blakely.

PPan Am Receives Us Dept of Commerce Award for a320 type ratings and flight attendant trainingan Am was recognized for increased international sales of flight training services. “Their international sales are impressive,” states Blakely. To know just how exceptional Pan Am is, consider the following in light of the impact their international clients have on the local economy:

• Pan Am International Flight Academy’s Denver location has trained the following foreign airlines this year:

 – Aerolineas Argentinas –training over 50 Boeing 747-400 Type Rating Pilot Crews, under a contract worth $2 Million dollars, with students buying over 2,000 nights of hotel bookings in Denver.

    -Philippine Airlines – Type Rating Airbus 320 Crews in Denver under a long-term training contract including at least 4 crews per month at $25,000 per crew.

    -Transaero – Russia’s largest Airlines.  Pan Am trained Transaero pilots in partnership with Boeing. Boeing would have lost this international sale had Pan Am not been able to offer a Colorado Boeing type rating solution.

Award from US Dept of commerce for excellence in pilot training and a320 type ratings and flight attendant training•  Pan Am’s Denver training center is the preferred training location for Type Rating Boeing 757 crews from the Royal New Zealand Air Force.  This long-standing relationship has generated hundreds of training events in Denver.  The Kiwi pilots love training in Denver for the summer festivities and the world class skiing in the winter and spend up to two additional weeks in Colorado for every training event.    

• The Sultan of Dubai operates his own exclusive private airline and can train anywhere in the world, but chooses to train his crews with Pan Am Denver.  The Dubai Airwing has been training in Denver for over 15 years and stays at the most exclusive high-end Denver hotels.

• Pan Am International Flight Academy’s 2011 estimated sales budget is $35 million dollars, of which approximately 20 million in sales comes from outside the country. A sampling of offerings include type ratings, flight attendant training, dispatcher, and air traffic controller training programs.

Pan Am sales have so significantly impacted Denver's economy that Congresswoman Diana DeGette personally presented the certificate to Pan Am officials in collaboration with Paul Bergman, Director of U.S. Commercial Services Denver.

The company is willing to provide additional information and interviews.
