United Flight Systems has a need for a ramper! What is a ramper? We have a team of people that work across the day to take care of our facilities and fleet. Most days they start at 7:00AM and work through the day until our aircraft are put away for the evening. We really need someone that is available to work any shift 7:00AM to 8:00PM, 7 days a week and willing to work at least 30 hours per week. Someone with strict schedule limitations that would prevent them from working before a certain hour or after a certain hour should NOT apply. This is an entry level position, but comes with a number of benefits as well.
If you know anyone that is interested please have them shoot an email to [email protected] or apply online here. They can start immediately and will receive a discount in the pilot shop and on plane rentals. Ideally someone working on their ratings or building time in the aviation business would a perfect fit!
As we continue to grow we are in need of at least one more person to join our flight line team (we call them rampers) and we need one more person to help our dispatch team in our front office. Both roles require flexibility when it comes to scheduling and our school needs people that are available to work 25+ hours a week. Apply at: https://www.facebook.com/unitedflightsystems/jobs/ #workatUFS #unitedflightsystems
[10/12/20] Dispatchers are the face of our flight school! They meet each student for every lesson daily. They are very instrumental in our operations and must provide a high level of customer service. Throughout the day they are responsible for a number of duties including dispatching flights, organizing documents, selling pilot supplies and ensuring our culture of safety! If you are interested in working at a GREAT flight school, apply today!
Help Bobby and Wally with topics you would like to hear about!! You might receive a FREE coffee mug if they do a show on your topic! #behindtheprop
Anyone want a FREE Behind the Prop coffee cup? Bobby and Wally did a little recording today and decided we would ask all of our friends and followers to suggest some show ideas. We have a full slate ready to go for the next few weeks and would like your show ideas. If we use your idea we will ship you a coffee mug! Comment your ideas or email them to [email protected] #behindtheprop

Throwback Thursday!!! Around February of 2015, I asked my neighbor Gary Craze to spend a little time chatting with me about the process to get my Private Pilot's license. He spent 3 good hours with me at a Starbucks answering all of my questions. He told me I had to go see the team over at United Flight Systems. I walked in here in May of that year and haven't looked back. Here is a look back at Gary's first solo on August 13, 1995!! #TBT #unitedflightsystems #fly2UFS #firstsolo
Bobby & Wally's Podcast went live today! Check out our first show sharing concepts and hints on things to come. #behindtheprop

Behind every business is a story. That idea rings true with United Flight Systems (UFS). Bob Watts was originally a partner at a major law firm in downtown Houston. However, he decided to leave his career and follow his passion for flying, taking over what was Merriworth Aviation in 1989 and creating United Flight Systems. His dream was to improve the flight school and provide quality training for pilots seeking a career in airline training. Through 2018, UFS has graduated 100’s of student who have gone on to a career as pilots for major airlines. It is interesting how history repeats itself. As of May of 2018, Bobby Doss and Matt Shaunty stepped back from their careers and allowed their passion for aviation to become a larger part of their life, taking the reigns at United Flight Systems and carrying on Bob’s legacy. All three men prove that a devotion to flight can easily be turned into more -a career and long-term avocation. The goal for us at UFS is always to create an environment where individuals feel that they are being provided with the resources that not only teach them to fly, but develop a love for aviation.
For those considering a career or flying or to just follow a passion, there are many advantages to choosing United Flight Systems. We are the only school at David Wayne Hooks Airport that has a full motion simulator. This allows students and licensed pilots to develop further training on the ground when weather conditions may not be ideal for flying. Jeannie’s Pilot Shop, a full pilot supply shop, allows for direct access to the materials an individual may need to start their journey as a pilot. Additionally, there are 11 planes in our active fleet and the future looks bright for refurbishing them to provide a higher quality experience through UFS. Another advantage of choosing UFS is the pull through parking for our planes, which many flight schools lack. It guarantees that students do not have to move planes by hand, a huge plus when beginner students lack a comfort level or familiarity with the planes. Our philosophy of “training to maximum proficiency, not minimum standards” will always ring true even through a change in ownership. Our facility, resources, well-maintained aircraft, and highly qualified instructors provide a remarkable experience in aviation. We welcome you to join us for a special flying and learning program you are sure to enjoy!
