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.
