The shortage of qualified aviation professionals is a concern across the industry. HAI hopes to tackle the crisis by enabling job adverts online, from anywhere around the world.
HAI president and CEO Matt Zuccaro.

Helicopter Association International (HAI) has launched its newest partner service membership benefit with a searchable, interactive database of thousands of aviation job postings from companies around the world. This partnership stems from both organisation's shared goal of solving the shortage of qualified aviation professionals and offers HAI members a new, dynamic tool to promote their employment opportunities.

“We've talked about the helicopter pilot and maintenance technician shortage quite a lot,” says HAI president and CEO Matt Zuccaro. “This partnership is a valuable workforce development tool that will assist our members in matching qualified candidates for their open positions. An HAI member icon identifies jobs posted by our members, giving job-seekers the knowledge that the position is with a company that is committed to the highest standards of our industry. In addition, a helicopter icon marks those positions that are helicopter-specific.”

“Our new partnership with HAI will provide HAI members with added value. Through its network, we will enhance our ability to make jobs readily accessible to current and future helicopter professionals,” adds manager of marketing and partnerships Abbey Hutter.

The partnership allows companies that advertise open positions on to have their jobs seen by potentially thousands more qualified candidates than if the job were only posted on a traditional job board. partnerships are giving aviation companies and aviation professionals more ways to connect, at a time when such connections are vital to the sustainment of the industry.

As part of the partnership, HAI members who are new to will receive a 90-day job ad to try the system (offer expires 9 August, 2019). Existing clients will receive a 20 per cent discount on new advertising/resume packages. In addition, the HAI job page will highlight all jobs posted by HAI members.
