Cadet Program takes pilots from classroom to cockpit








Envoy is building upon our existing Pilot Pipeline programs to launch an industry-leading Envoy Cadet Program, to help the most promising future pilots make a smooth transition from the classroom to cockpit. Combined with Envoy’s seniority-based flow through to American Airlines, the Cadet Program provides unmatched advancement opportunities.

“By starting in the Envoy Cadet Program, students can put themselves on a direct path to a long-term career as a commercial airline pilot with American Airlines, the largest airline in the world, offering pilots the highest pay and youngest fleet among the U.S. mainline carriers,” said Captain Ric Wilson, Envoy’s Vice President Flight Operations. “The Envoy Cadet Program allows us to ease the financial burden faced by aspiring pilots wanting to pursue this career, while simultaneously giving Envoy access to some of the nation’s top aviation talent.”

The Program offers various levels of support as the Cadet’s certifications, training and experience evolves. Mentorships and internships with airline industry experts can begin as early as a Cadet’s freshman year. As a Cadet achieves more certifications, they become eligible for tuition reimbursement, placement at partner schools to serve as instructors so they can build their flight time, and, at select partner schools, employee travel privileges.
