Welcome to Airport Career
Without air transportation, today's world would be very different from the one we're living in. People all over the world depend on air travel for business, leisure, and visits to family and friends. Businesses rely on air transportation to move materials, to bring branch managers to headquarters for meetings, to connect with clients and customers, and even in the age of the Internet, to move important documents quickly from one place to another. Government uses air transport in all these ways and more--to fly officials all over the world, to bring members of congress back and forth to their home states.

All kinds of people work in airports, but many of them, like secretaries and janitors, fill jobs that are generic; that is, they're jobs that exist in just about every industry, from the smallest medical practice to the largest corporation. The people we call "airport workers," though, have jobs that are only found in airports or require special airport-related skills. Airport operations managers, for example, need many of the same skills that people who oversee other kinds of operations need, but they also need a whole additional set of skills to deal with the very special requirements of air transportation.

While some airport workers--particularly those in management--work directly for the airport itself, most people who work in airports actually work for an airline. Some airport workers work for shipping companies like Federal Express, that are housed at airports but have their own fleet of planes. Others work for what are called "Fixed Base Operators" (FBOs), private companies that offer services like flight training, aircraft rentals, air taxi service as well as maintenance and repair services.

Airports also range in size from small operations, with only a few workers and only one airline serving them, to huge international airports, like Dulles International Airport in northern Virginia, with thousands of workers and many airlines. What airport worker's does often depends on the size of the airport. In small airports, a single worker frequently does a whole variety of jobs--issuing tickets, checking passengers in, even helping to move baggage onto a plane--whereas in large airports, each of these tasks is a separate job. In either case, these jobs involve working in shifts, since even small airports operate for long hours, and the larger ones are up and running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Airport Business

But above all, airport workers are the nation's first-line of defense against air transportation-connected attack, whether by foreign terrorists, domestic ones, or just plain criminals. Security personnel, the people who check passengers in, and those who screen baggage are the most directly involved in protection. But all airport personnel, even those like restaurant servers, must be constantly on the alert for unusual behavior, stray packages, and anything else that might pose a threat. To this end, workers themselves must undergo a thorough background checs before beginning work and must wear ID badges at all times.

The job outlook for airport workers is variable. The events of September 11, 2001, together with some temporary airport closures and a downturn in the economy, drastically reduced air travel, and with it the demand for airport workers. Recently, however, the volume of travel has begun to increase to more normal levels, and there are more opportunities for airport workers. Disasters aside, when the economy slows, airlines often suffer and lay off workers. When it improves, so do the prospects for airport workers.

Despite this uncertain future and other drawbacks, such as shift, weekend, and evening work, airport jobs offer some attractive benefits. Airlines employees qualify for discounted or even free air travel on their employer's airline. Most positions at airports offer benefits--like health insurance and retirement plans. People who love to travel and want a full-time job with benefits should consider working at an airport.

Airline Announcements
The most significant role of a flight attendant is to ensure passenger safety. In doing so, flight attendants make several announcements before, during and after flight. The first announcement takes place before the aircraft leaves the gate, is an Aircraft Safety Demonstration specific for each type of aircraft and includes a demonstration alerting passengers of safety. Here are two Safety Demonstrations you can review and practice.

Airport Careers
The airport is one of the most vital elements in our air transportation system. A well equipped airport provides a variety of facilities for the aircraft and for crews and passengers. These include runways and taxiways, which may be lighted for day and night use; a terminal building with lounge areas for passengers, and possibly a restaurant and shops; automobile parking lots; ramp areas and hangars for aircraft storage; and maintenance shops for aircraft and avionics.

Vision Air Center Jobs
Vision Air Center-

For the Wrights, Hughes, Earharts and Lindberghs, flight was the ultimate in adventure and independence. At Vision Air Center, we like to think the spirit that fueled their passion lives on. Thats why since 1967, we have provided businesses, families and those who love independence, the freedom of on-demand travel 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.



The Flyby Air story began in the mid-sixties when Ron Ludema, learned to fly. He received his license to fly in 1965 and continued to earn all of his ratings. In 1967 Ron combined his passion for flying with a vision to own his own business and what would become FlybyAir was born. The first airplane was a single engine Bonanza, which was chartered for many hours while crisscrossing the United States and Canada. At that time, two full-time and two part-time employees constituted the entire company staff.



It has always been our commitment to continuously update our fleet and facility to meet the needs and safety concerns of our customers. In 1998, we added our first jet, the Falcon 10, whose speed doubles that of a turboprop aircraft. 2004 marked another turning point when we added the luxurious Gulfstream G200 and international jet service.



Since then, we have upgraded aircraft to the luxurious Learjet 45 and can provide non-stop service from Holland to Florida and many destinations on the west coast. As always, we are looking to the future with great expectations!






In October, 2012, Tulip City Air Service, Inc. (Now FlybyAir) was honored by the National Business Aviation Association with a Commercial Business Flying Safety Award for 2011. This award was presented for 48 years and over 30,000 hours of safe flying in commercial aviation.
