What is a "candidate profile"?
A candidate profile is your profile in AAP Aviation's database. It is (and always will be) free to create a candidate profile and once you have completed your profile you can easily apply for jobs through AAP Aviation.
You can set up your own preferences and choose if you only want to receive job alerts or if you also want to subscribe to our newsletter.Register or update your candidate profile

Absolutely! AAP Aviation aims to be an integrated part of the future of aviation. We will select, educate, and employ the pilots of tomorrow.
