Academy College Establishes Preferred Hiring Programs
December 1, 2018
Academy College, located in Bloomington, MN, has established Preferred Hiring Agreements with CommutAir/United Express, GoJet Airlines, Cape Air/Nantucket Airlines, and Redwing Aero Company.
These programs create opportunities in these companies for the students of Academy College enrolled in either the Commercial Pilot, Aircraft Dispatcher or Aviation Business programs. Preferred Hiring Agreements include many benefits for Academy College students, including the opportunity to observe training classes at airline corporate headquarters, access to meetings with Operation leadership teams, and the assignment of an experienced pilot or first officer by the airlines as a personalized mentor to the Academy student.
Students can begin participating in these programs as early as their freshman year. Some of these Pathway programs also provide:
• $10,000 in Tuition Reimbursement
• Advanced Training Opportunities in Flight Simulators
• Flight Benefits
• Conditional Letters of Employment
• Accelerated Hiring Process
The aviation industry overall is facing a shortage in pilots, aircraft dispatchers, mechanics and business personnel. Nowhere is this more true than at the regional level. Thus, the current employment landscape affords unprecedented opportunities for Academy College students, since these programs are vital to the continued success of both the airlines and our graduates.
