Welcome to Aviation Careers Podcast. This podcast is for those interested in discovering more about the many careers in aviation. By listening to this podcast you will:
  • Discover the various aviation career fields with a focus on becoming a pilot.
  • Determine if a career in aviation is for you.
  • Learn how to advance your aviation career.
  • Discover jobs which allow you to work in your current profession while being able to enjoy a part time aviation career.
  • Learn the various paths toward reaching your aviation career goal.

My name is Carl Valeri and I have over twenty years of flying experience. For over twelve years I have been assisting pilots find jobs and obtain interviews with numerous airlines in the United States and throughout the world. I have discovered some helpful resources for those considering an aviation career or trying to advance in their career.

To truly be successful you should pursue a career that will fulfill your inner sense of purpose.  Once you understand your purpose and why you have chosen your career you must start down the path towards your goal with the flexibility and anticipation to change course often.  If you keep your eye on the goal choosing the correct path becomes easier. You will soon know whether your path is leading you closer or further away from your career goal. I hope this podcast will help you define your career ambition with more clarity and help you reach your aviation career goal.

Your goal may be to one day teach people how to fly. It might be flying passengers around the world in a large and sophisticated jet. It might be maintaining or building airplanes. Maybe you want to write about aviation. You may want to pursue a part time career in aviation.  Whatever path you choose in aviation I hope you find this podcast helpful.

Each episode will include three main segments:

  • Career advice and answers to listeners e-mails.
  • Interviews with aviation professionals including pilots, mechanics, and recruiters.
  • Recommended aviation career products and services.

Aviation Career Podcast hopes we can help you define your dream and start living your dream!
