Colgan Air Hiring Pilots – Offers Preferential Interviews to ATP Flight School Graduates

Posted on | July 13, 2010 | No Comments

Colgan Air held a recruiting event at New York’s La Guardia airport exclusively for
ATP Flight School Instructors and Graduates to attend. The event was held on July 6th
and 7th, and over 20 pilots were offered First Officer Positions by Colgan.


Memphis-based Colgan Air has announced that it will be adding 15 new Bombardier Q400 aircraft to its fleet, and will be offering ATP Flight School graduates preferential interviews.

In a bulletin to ATP Flight School’s students and graduates, Colgan states it will be hiring First Officers for Q400 and Saab 340 flying with domiciles in the Northeast.

ATP offered its Airline Career Pilot Program graduates and its current Certified Flight Instructors this opportunity. It was recommended that anyone attending this
recruiting event be graduates of ATP’s Regional Jet Standards Certification Course.

Colgan Air will fly the fleet of 15 Bombardier Q400 turboprop
regional aircraft from Newark Liberty International Airport, Continental’s New
York-area hub, beginning early this year. The brand-new 74-passenger planes
will replace the 50-seat Embraer 145 jets currently used on select flights to
within 500 miles of Newark Liberty, operating as part of the Continental
Connection regional network. By mid-June, Q400s will fly to 21 cities from
Newark Liberty and Cleveland, with more than 100 arrivals and departures per day.
The switch to new turboprop aircraft will help reduce congestion at Newark
Liberty and potentially help Continental/Colgan Air avoid flight delays.
