Hello everyone, I'm a 21 yr old student pilot currently working part-time as a pre-loader and finishing up on my private pilots license. My long term goal is to eventually land a professional position in aviation. I have a few questions for anyone who may have information I'm looking for. Thanks in advance! 1) Is there any kind of training or aid offered to student/private pilots through UPS that I am unaware of? It is extremely hard and expensive to meet the 1000 hrs of flight time requirement for pilots without a job flying. In my opinion, it would make sense for the company to help potential pilots build that flight time with a co-pilot position or something similar, right? 2) From what I've seen, UPS seems to prefer hiring/promoting employees from within. Is this the same for pilots? 3) Are there any additional steps I should be taking to improve my chances of landing a position in aviation? Like maybe somewhere I can put my name out so that the company knows I'm already working on and am interested becoming a pilot? All other info that you think may be useful concerning my advancement in the aviation field (UPS or not) is welcome!
