“AAP Aviation has only gone above and beyond what was offered. With this being my first contract flying experience, I have a favorable outlook on the setup. AAP is an employer that values its people. From day one of communicating with AAP, my perception is a genuine desire to make me feel welcome. Being one of the first American pilots to join Norwegian through AAP, I would like to invite my American colleagues to check it out. Norwegian provides a good product, is well-liked and I am proud to work with them.”
