Envoy Air

After a challenging year loaded with difficult circumstances, the time has come to change the course and share that Envoy will resume cadet and pilot hiring effective immediately. This is a direct result of American Airlines’ plans to restart the flow and advancement of Envoy pilots to the mainline in the fourth quarter of this year. We are excited to begin processing current Instructor Cadets to fill Envoy First Officer positions and simultaneously resume the backfill of these vacancies with new cadets for our program. The pandemic is not over, but as travel demand continues its path to recovery, it is necessary for Envoy to resume cadet and pilot hiring, so it can be ready to get back to business.

As you know, our Cadet Program is one of the strongest in the industry, as we only seek the most promising university and commercial flight school student pilots providing a clear career path and smooth transition from student to instructor, instructor to regional pilot, and regional pilot to the mainline pilot.

Our Recruiting Team is ready to work with you for the transitioning of Instructor Cadets to Envoy and in identifying new talents to backfill these Instructor Cadet vacancies. We will be reaching out to you soon and join efforts to search for the best of the best. Feel free to contact Elizabeth Bogdan, our Outreach Recruiter and our Air Operations Recruitment Team if you have any questions. You can also get more information about the program on our website envoyair.com.

We value and greatly appreciate your partnership. Thank you for the collaborative efforts in making this program successful for your school, your students, Envoy and American Airlines. 

Respectfully,
Captain Ric Wilson                                           
Vice President – Flight Operations
