ATP’s long-time recruiting partner SkyWest Airlines announced today that they will purchase 8 new, dual-class Embraer E175 jets to be flown for Alaska Airlines. The new planes will be delivered in 2016 and will require hiring at least 80 pilots to crew them.
“We are pleased to secure additional Embraer aircraft to fly in partnership with Alaska Airlines,” said SkyWest, Inc. President Chip Childs. “We appreciate our long-standing relationship with Embraer and continue to be impressed with the E175 product.”
Many graduates of ATP’s Airline Career Pilot Program are flying for SkyWest now, and they will undoubtedly enjoy flying the latest and most technologically advanced regional jets being operated by the airlines today.
ATP graduates are meeting and exceeding their career objectives and positioning themselves for multi-million dollar careers flying for the Major Airlines. These pilots will get there ahead of their competition, and enjoy all the benefits of greater seniority, because they chose to train with the school that has a thirty year record of setting pilots on the path to success: ATP.
