Regional airline Envoy Air has agreed to participate in ATP Flight School's tuition reimbursement program, the companies announced Dec. 11.
Envoy will pay up to $11,000 of ATP flight instructor graduates' training costs. In exchange, the flight instructors agree to fly for Envoy after earning the requisite number of hours.
The ATP tuition reimbursement program allows Envoy to ease the financial burden faced by aspiring pilots, while simultaneously giving Envoy immediate access to some of the nation's top aviation talent, said Ric Wilson, vice president of flight operations for Envoy.
As a wholly owned subsidiary of American Airlines Group, Envoy is the largest regional airline provider for American, the worlds largest airline. And with an industry leading flow-through agreement to American, Envoy pilots have a direct path to a mainline flying career, with no additional interview required.
American Airlines projects that it will need more than 300 pilots from Envoy this year, with Envoy guaranteed to make up half of all of Americans new hire classes. This unmatched flow-through, coupled with our recent announcements of additional flying for American that will keep our total fleet count stable for 2016, means more than 200 Captain upgrade opportunities and at least 350 pilot new hires.
