Our profession provides us with outstanding opportunities in life. We get paid more money than most Americans (or any other humans) could ever hope to earn. Despite that, I’m shocked at how many pilots I meet who are terrible with money. Many of these pilots have incomes in the top 10% of all Americans, yet manage to be dirt poor.We’re here to fix that.This book aims to teach you Pilot Math with the kind of lasting impact that will set you up for an amazing life. I’m talking about a life where you only ever do things that you want to do, yet you never have to worry about your family’s needs being met. It’s a life free from fear, and rich with actualization of your loftiest goals.Let’s start filling up your Treasure Bath!
Professional Pilots of Tomorrow started from the vision of a small group of pilots who wanted to help others. Over the past years, the organization has grown to a network of over 1000 pilots who have impacted the lives and careers of countless aviators.
Professional Pilots of Tomorrow provides a wide range of benefits to its members to help them succeed as professional pilots in training and beyond.
1 on 1 Mentorship
Members are assigned a personal mentor who provides unbiased guidance and support.
PPOT maintains a wide variety of resources to help pilots, such as info on airlines, low-time flying opportunities, and specialized guides.
Not only do members work 1 on 1 with their personal mentor, they also have the opportunity to interact with and learn from our growing network of over 1000 professional pilots and pilots in training.
TPN has set out to disrupt the traditional airline job fair with a conference that is designed to be informal, educational and most of all…fun.
We are focused on the topics that military aviators have questions about. The goal of TPNx is to facilitate an intimate and personalized environment where airline recruiters have the opportunity to really get to know potential candidates in more of a social setting where formality, applications and resumes aren’t the focus.
TPNx is planned to be a 3-day event that will start on Nov 9th, 2019 in the early afternoon with a happy hour reception event and vendor expo, followed by a buffet style dinner that concludes with a limited open bar. Day 2 will feature speakers and presentations designed to help pilots think about the big picture. Day 3 will continue the presentations and incorporate Hands-on Labs and Seminars. The hope is that by creating an environment that encourages open discussion and interaction we can capture the same camaraderie that military pilots remember from Friday evenings at the Sq Bar. This is where real trust was built amongst military aviators.
Unfortunately this tradition has been somewhat lost in today’s military, but TPN believes that they can recreate it to not only facilitate the search for a pilot’s “last job”, but to help build lasting professional friendships across the aviation community.
This also gives recruiters a chance to interact socially with pilots in a way that isn’t normally possible.
Some of the presentations we hope to include are: A panel of pilots that spent an entire career at their airline that can describe their respective experiences over the arc of 20+ year career at an airline.
We also plan have a panel of 2nd or 3rd year First Officers that are willing to “tell it like it is”, by describing the realities of Part 121 life. They would like to offer recruiters from any airline interested, the opportunity to give their Airline’s recruiting presentation.
