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.

POPULAR AVIATION JOB TITLES:Maine Aviation Jobs
Maine Aviation was founded by brothers Joe and Tom Caruso who, just out of the military after World War II, took the advice of their Uncle Sully and started flying scenic flights in a seaplane from the Hinckley boat dock in Southwest Harbor, Maine, in 1947. By their third year, the brothers had leased the Bar Harbor Airport, finding a permanent home for their aviation business. Then, in 1959, Joe Caruso moved his family to Portland, where he established Maine Aviation Corporation. There never was any question about the future of Allyn andquot;Alandquot; Caruso, Joeand#39;s son: He literally grew up on the flight ramp at the Bar Harbor Airport, and during his high school years fueled and washed planes at the Portland airport. Al Caruso flew for Bar Harbor Airways and, at age 19, became an airline captain. Today, Al Caruso is joined in operating Maine Aviation by his wife, Alysan, General Manager, and their younger son, Travis, the companyand#39;s Director of Maintenance.
