Pipeline Program

Regional Airline Pipeline Program

Do you have your CFI and aspire to become an airline pilot? Great! Do you want to streamline your path from Certified Flight Instructor to airline pilot? Fantastic! You’ve come to the right place. US Aviation Academy prides itself on offering top-of-the-line flight instruction and training that’s timely and stays within budgetary constraints. With our Regional Airline Pipeline Program, we conveniently provide Certified Flight Instructors the means to attain airline pilot status quickly and efficiently with the help from Envoy Airlines.

Envoy Airlines Pipeline Instructor Program

US Aviation Academy has a partnership with Envoy Airlines that’s designed to develop a career path from CFI to Regional Airline Pilot. This exciting program gives pilots a secured position at Envoy while they accumulate time toward the ATP minimum flight experience requirements. Not only does our pipeline program provide a streamlined career path, but Envoy also hires and employs instructors while they are still instructing!

What does this mean for the CFI? It means that while flight instructing, he or she will have medical, dental and vision benefits, as well as travel privileges with American Airlines and Envoy! Once pipeline instructors reach the ATP minimums and 50 hours of multi-engine experience, Envoy will place them into new-hire pilot training in the next new hire class.
