Gateway to Major Airlines
Now, as you know what a regional airline is, how do you start a career with one?
Flying for a regional airline can open many doors to the major airlines. SkyWest, for instance, partners with four major airlines (American, Alaska, Delta, and United), providing their pilots multiple paths to major airlines. With the projected upcoming pilot shortage, regional airlines are having to make themselves more competitive, offering perks such as paid training, relocation expenses, sign-on bonuses, and bridge programs to their major airline partners. Now is a great time for prospective pilots to enter the market.
AeroGuard provides a clear path to becoming an airline pilot; Graduates are guaranteed a First Officer Interview with SkyWest Airlines after graduation, and receive $17,500 as a tuition reimbursement upon I.O.E.
