Working on taxes and thought it was a good time to express gratitude for the eight clients that we worked with this year. From the get-go, our business plan was to work with a handful of businesses or individuals at the top of their game. It was never about numbers, it was about quality. Our clients have delivered in spades. Thank you!

If you want to work with a partner who specializes in #crisiscommunications and can provide #publicrelations and #governmentrelations without excuses, you may be ready to #sailunderablackflag

Its been a busy week at Black Flag Communications, developing web and social media content, conducting a photo shoot, arranging a press conference and working on a couple of proposals. #BusyIsGood, but now its time to enjoy the weekend (so... why are we working today?)

From our friends at the Orthodox Public Affairs Committee:

Statement on the Situation in Ukraine

The Orthodox Public Affairs Committee (OPAC) was established to provide public advocacy for the global Orthodox Christian Church, and to promote, defend and champion Christian communities worldwide in the face of persecution, exclusion and prejudice. We are committed to defending sacred space, whether it be physical, intellectual, moral or spiritual; to speak for the voiceless, to listen to the unheard, and to manifest the righteous causes of Christian Faithful everywhere. 

As such, we strongly condemn the actions being taken by the Russian government in Ukraine and urge calm and the protection of the holy cathedrals, historic monasteries, and churches throughout Ukraine. Ukrainians and Russians are brothers and sisters in Christ, and no government should pit them against each other in a state of war. OPAC mourns for the needless death of the already 14,000 perished in the Eastern regions of Ukraine; and stands with the Ukrainian People and their national sovereignty. We must not let war and the exigencies of politics interfere with the life of the church in Ukraine. OPAC stands with all people of faith in Ukraine and prays for the safety of her holy spaces and her people.

Airbus and Flight Works Alabama relaunch and expand pre-employment training program, FlightPath9! Excellent opportunity for young people to get the training they need to work for Airbus!

Flight Works Alabama Relaunches and Expands the FlightPath9 Program; Potential applicants must register for informational calls to be held week of February 21 

MOBILE, Ala., February 17, 2022 - Flight Works Alabama has partnered with the State of Alabama, Bishop State Community College, Southwest Alabama Partnership for Training and Employment, and local businesses to relaunch FlightPath9 (FP9), a pre-employment training program designed to prepare high school students or individuals who are early in their career and who have a keen interest in the aviation industry for a position at Airbus’ U.S. Manufacturing Facility.

Those interested in applying for the program must register no later than 2 p.m. on the day of the event to participate in mandatory informational calls. Individuals who are in their early career have until 2 p.m. Monday, Feb. 21, to register for an informational call to be held later that day. High school students have until 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 23, to register for their call. To register for the calls, all interested individuals should visit https://www.flightworksalabama.com/education/flightpath9/

“The FlightPath9 program is critical to ensuring our future workforce has the proper training and development necessary to launch a successful career in aviation,” said Daryl Taylor, Vice President and General Manager of Airbus’ U.S. Manufacturing Facility. “We are pleased to continue this partnership and look forward to adding more successful FlightPath9 graduates to our Airbus team.” 

In 2022, there will be two separate FlightPath9 pre-employment training programs: 

FlightPath9 High School Program was created in 2019 for high school seniors and will relaunch in September 2022. Current high school juniors can apply for the upcoming class by March 18. This class is limited to 25 participants. 

FlightPath9 Early Career Program is newly developed and specifically designed for individuals who may be beginning their careers and have a strong interest in the aviation industry. Those interested can apply for the 10-week FlightPath9 summer program by March 16.

Bishop State is excited to support the continued growth of the aviation industry along the Gulf Coast by providing a trained and skilled workforce. We look forward to partnering with Flight Works Alabama and Airbus to offer an Aviation Manufacturing Technology program,” said Dr. Lawrence Brandyburg, Interim President, Bishop State Community College. “Students earn not only college credit but will also receive industry-approved training, several industry-recognized credentials from the National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3), and are guaranteed a job with Airbus. This will be life-changing for our students, and we look forward to seeing the positive results of this partnership!

All FlightPath9 program participants must have basic reading, writing and math skills, along with the ability to work in a team environment. All applicants must be 18-years or older by their hire date. Upon successful completion of these programs, graduates will become full-time apprentices at the Airbus U.S. Manufacturing Facility. 

“FlightPath9 provides an avenue for individuals to master an array of skills while delivering an educational program to our community with clear and measurable results,” said Michelle Hurdle, President of Flight Works Alabama. “We were proud to send our first group of FlightPath9 graduates into the workforce in 2021 and look forward to growing this program in the upcoming years.”
