Saint Louis University’s Parks College has three partner agreements with airlines to ensure that students are getting early exposure to the aviation industry.
SLU signed a Pilot Pipeline Program partnership agreement with Envoy Air, part of the American Airlines Group. The program will guarantee students an interview with Envoy upon completion of the flight science program and flight certificates and ratings (CFI, CFII and MEI).
SLU has also signed an Aviation Career Pipeline Interview agreement with Republic Airline that will guarantee participating SLU students an interview with the airline upon completion of the degree program.
SLU was also chosen by Mesa Airlines to be a partner in Mesa’s First Officer Cadet Pipeline University Program. Pilots hired at Mesa receive an Airline Transport Pilot type rating at the completion of initial training. Once finished with the First Officer Cadet Pipeline University Program, the graduate can participate in its Career Path Program (CCP) with United Airlines. The CCP is designed to provide qualified current and future United Express pilots at Mesa a clear path to the flight deck with United Airlines. The CCP will both help to attract qualified individuals to staff Mesa’s expanding fleet and retain existing pilots looking to advance to a major airline.
