    Title: The Predictive Relationship Between Organizational Innovativeness and Airline Pilots' Perception of Employer Attractiveness


    I want to learn about what aspects of innovation might make an airline more attractive to pilots when they decide which airline to apply to fly for. Research indicates that the views of current employees helps organizations shape their recruiting marketing efforts, so your views are an important source of data.


    While this research did not benefit participants directly, their participation may help future researchers or airline leaders better understand how to attract pilots to the profession.


    Participation in this research was voluntary and completely anonymous. Participant criteria included FAA Certified pilots:

    • holding an airline transport pilot certificate;

    • aged between 23 and 65 years old; and

    • actively employed as a pilot for a part 121 operator in the United States


    I am writing an academic paper about the research findings using the collected data as part of my doctoral education program.
