Aviation Specialty Insurance

For the past five years, Aviation Specialty Insurance has been growing as the Midwest’s premier aviation-focused insurance agency. We are a group of passionate, experienced individuals committed to providing our clients with over-the-top levels of service. We do whatever it takes to take care of our
clients and are seeking new Sales Executives who will share our commitment.

Our Sales Executives are responsible for building a base of insurance clients and providing them with aviation insurance solutions from our extensive list of insurance providers. This requires a mix of cold calling, following up on warm inbound leads, attending trade shows, and most importantly, getting out
into your local and regional aviation community to build strong relationships.

Our Sales Executives will hear many “nos” and “not todays,” but they are the type of individuals who relish the challenge to keep working for that “yes.” If you are willing to hustle each and every day, the rewards can be tremendous. With several years of hard work, six-figure income opportunities are very possible.

Who succeeds in a role like this?

First, our Sales Executives need to love aviation — there is no faking passion, and our clients can spot it from a mile away. Second, our Sales Executives need to be resilient. Selling is a noble profession that connects clients with products that help them achieve their dreams — but it requires tenacity to
persevere while serving others.

The insurance part is simple. We cover training and certification expenses and have our new Sales Executives up and running in just a few weeks from their start date.

United States Air Force - Various Aviator Positions

Students with a 2.5 cumulative GPA or higher, and are within 12 months of graduation or have already graduated (27 age limit) are eligible to apply.  Any academic background may apply, yet engineering students naturally excel in aviation career fields. 

 

Unlike civilian employers, the Air Force establishes an annual application deadline.  The annual deadline is at the end of each fiscal year, June 30th. Missing the deadline essential postpones the opportunity for an entire year.  There is a very simple (but not overnight) process to apply for an aviation career field(s) in the Air Force.  This process includes:

  • Paperwork (credit check, medical prescreen, resume, 3 letters of recommendation, official college transcripts)
  • Testing (Air Force Officer Qualifying Test, Test of Basic Aviation Skills)
  • Interview with military officer

 

Students who are interested should begin the application as soon as possible, because both the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test (AFOQT) and Test of Basic Aviation Skills (TBAS) is offered pending proctor availability at separate testing centers.  Moreover, testing is typically administered on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

Below you find the four aviation career fields the Air Force offers.  Applicants may apply for as few as one, or any many as all four career fields.
