Welcome to Universal Pilot Application Service
HISTORICAL INFORMATION PRE 1998
UPAS Takes Off
The on line service for job seeking pilots continues to grow.

YEARS AGO, ALPA HELPED establish the Universal Pilot Application Service, Inc., the online system for companies looking for pilots and pilots looking for companies. Since then, UPAS has taken off, with hundreds companies and thousands of pilots using it for help with searches for employees or jobs.

UPAS President Judy Tarver says the major, regional, charter and corporate airlines are now using UPAS for their pilot hiring needs. Some carriers use the service as one of several resources for new pilot hiring, but TWA looks only to UPAS to find new cockpit crewmembers.

Second Officer Sean Clarke, a B 727 flight engineer, has been with TWA since September 1996, thanks in part to UPAS. He is one of many pilots TWA has hired since the airline began using UPAS when the service started in 1994.

"I was very pleased with the UPAS services throughout the hiring process," S O Clarke explains. "The UPAS staff was very accommodating - especially to my working schedule - and I was able to update my credentials right through my computer," he says.

For pilots such as S O Clarke and hundreds of others who have found jobs through the on line system, UPAS is working exactly as it was designed to do when ALPA helped establish it as a way to help qualified pilots enter into and move up in today's turbulent aviation industry.

UPAS's roots go back to 1992 when ALPA established the national Pilot Training Service Committee, with Capt. Robert A. Pastore (TWA) as the chairman. He explains that one of the Committee's first mandates was to develop a centralized database of pilot qualifications from which companies could search for qualified candidates.

In April 1994, ALPA's Executive Council passed a resolution to officially establish UPAS as a separate corporation, wholly owned by ALPA.

ALPA's Executive Board approved the loan from the Association's Operating Contingency Fund to begin the project, and people from both inside and outside of the Association were named officers of UPAS and appointed to its Board of Directors.

UPAS began with just a few staff employees, including Tarver, who had been the manager of pilot recruitment at American Airlines, and computer consultant Doug Henderson, who developed UPAS's sophisticated software programs.

UPAS operated from a small office in ALPA's Herndon, VA., building during its first 2 years; but as more companies and pilots joined the on line service, the staff grew and UPAS needed larger quarters. During the summer of 1996, UPAS relocated to another Herndon office complex, with enough space for the current 10 UPAS employees.

Your Aviation Home Page
Aviation refers to flying using aircraft, machines designed by humans for atmospheric flight. More generally, the term also describes the activities, industries, and regulatory bodies associated with aircraft.

Department of Transportation - Aviation Division
The Department of Transportation Aviation Division and Federal Aviation Administration are responsible for the safety of civil aviation and airways.

Airline Announcements
The most significant role of a flight attendant is to ensure passenger safety. In doing so, flight attendants make several announcements before, during and after flight. The first announcement takes place before the aircraft leaves the gate, is an Aircraft Safety Demonstration specific for each type of aircraft and includes a demonstration alerting passengers of safety. Here are two Safety Demonstrations you can review and practice.

Airline Job Link
The primary and overriding responsibility of flight attendants is passenger safety. However, they are often tasked with the secondary function of seeing to the care and comfort of the passengers, insofar as this does not interfere with their safety responsibilities. They are often perceived by the flying public as waitresses or servants because only this latter function is normally seen outside the extremely rare event of in-flight emergency; and historically this perception has been portrayed by airlines in ads and commercials.

The Universal Pilot Application Service
The Universal Pilot Application Service is an employment assistance service that provides pilots with the opportunity to gain exposure to companies that are now hiring. UPAS additionally provides companies with the ability to be selective when searching for pilots with particular flight experience and qualifications. UPAS now has over twenty thousand pilots in their database. Flight experience levels vary from single engine flight instructors to Boeing 747/400 Captains.

TriState Aviation Jobs
TriState Aviation-TriState Aviation is a small, but busy flight school located between Manhattan and Philadelphia.
We operate a very clean, well maintained fleet consisting of C152s and C172 for our private pilot training. Our Arrow II is the perfect aircraft to complete the IFR and Commercial requirements our students are seeking as they prepare to move through their ratings to become commercial pilots.

Our instructors are well suited for our operation. They work well together and have the type of disposition we seek for our students. Though we prefer to have a student remain with one instructor throughout their training program, instructors will assist each other with those students that are having difficulty adjusting to a required maneuver in our syllabus. It’s not uncommon to hear them talk to each other about the level their students are at, where they need help and where they excel. We encourage that line of communication between instructors so we all remain on the same page with our program.

We have a number of interns responsible for a multitude of tasks in our building and on the field. Washing floors, cutting grass, pre-heating planes, refueling aircraft, taking out the garbage, detailing planes are just a few of the chores our interns are responsible for. We want a clean building, clean planes, smooth operations and a seamless transfer from one student to another. In exchange for their work, they receive free use of the aircraft as we encourage youth in our community to fly knowing that they are our future in aviation.


We stress the idea of ‘community’ on the airfield and in our neighborhood. It’s not uncommon to find a few seasoned pilots sitting in our lounge, sharing stories with students and encouraging them to take their training seriously. We have an open-door policy for pilots on the field as well as people visiting the airport. We welcome anyone to sit on our patio and watch planes land and depart throughout the day. We are very involved in community projects and host a number of events throughout the year to recognize our veteran service men and women as well as providing an amazing Santa Fly-In for the kids in our community.


Unlike other schools in the area, we don’t depend on fuel sales, hangar rent and tie-down fees to supplement our income. We don’t own the airport and rely solely on our productivity with our school as income. It’s important that we hold a higher standard in order to be a success in this arena. Whether you want to build your hours to be able to fly for the airlines or looking for a semi-retirement income to hold you over while maintaining your passion for flying, our doors are open. We’re certain that once you visit us and learn about our school, you won’t be going elsewhere for a position as a flight instructor. Please drop by or contact us for more information.
