The majority of general aviation aircraft use what’s referred to as a reciprocating engine. Mechanical energy is created through the back and forth movement (hence the name reciprocating) of pistons located in each cylinder which in turn drive a crankshaft that is directly connected to the propeller creating the required thrust. In the figure below you can see the major components of your typical reciprocating engine. [More]

Job postings on our site have a life span set by the employer. They expire unless renewed or reposted (by the employer). At any point during their run, jobs can be manually deleted by the companies. In either case, they will no longer appear on our site, and you can no longer submit your resume to the job. Unfortunately, this is something that is specified on the employers' part, and not on the part of Avjobs.com.
Job postings routinely expire in 30 days to keep things fresh.

Why do some companies post jobs as confidential?
A "Confidential" posting means that the company chooses to remain anonymous. This typically happens for one of a few reasons.
Some companies don't want it to be publicly known they are hiring. Perhaps they haven't advertised it even to their own employees.
Sometimes they are going to replace a person who doesn't know it yet and they don’t want them mistakenly finding out they are interviewing for the position.
Perhaps they don't want their competitors knowing what sort of skill set they are looking for.
Perhaps they don't want their stock prices to drop when the public realizes the star employee with the brilliant ideas' is retiring and needs to be replaced.
Someone is about to get fired and the company is looking to find a replacement without tipping them off
The company doesn't want to deal with the sea of people wanting to follow up via the phone. Yes when it says, "No phone calls" they are serious. It is not a test to see if you really want the job and so you will call. Keep in mind that the average posting gets about 1000 people looking at it and so they would have to hire someone full time just to field the phone calls about the job or the calls of "I just want to make sure you got my resume"
We get a lot of posted jobs from a lot of "big shots" and what people want is normal professionals applying to jobs, what they don't want is a John Travolta/Seattle Seahawks/Garth Brooks fan applying to a job that they don't have any business going after.
We manually screen each posting and run a check on all new employers using the site so the reality is that a confidential posting can really be one of the "better" jobs that we have on the site.
Unfortunately we cannot reveal to anyone who the company is.
We realize that for some job seekers who are currently employed you don't want to apply to a confidential job at your own company (this has happened) or otherwise get outed to your employer that you are looking.
This industry is filled with go getters, if you are looking and you get "caught" congratulations, you are just like everyone else.
If you are not happy in your job or if your employer isn't challenging you enough then by all means get out there and find a new job. There are plenty of legitimate reasons why they might want to be confidential. Our advice is to apply, you really have nothing to lose. [More]
