A trusted provider of the highest caliber pilots.

FAA airline relationships

Once you have reached 1,500 hours of flight time you can meet our affiliate airlines.

Our US Academy has relationships with 14 different regional airlines. Our connections with these airlines means that when you finally reach the FAA required 1,500 hours of flight time and are looking to join an airline, we will have already developed the pathways that will help you get to where you want to be.

Our affiliate airlines are often invited to campus, allowing our students and instructors exclusive opportunities to speak with airline recruiters. Airlines will even hold on campus interviews for jobs as Co-Pilots or entrance into their cadet programs.

The airlines know that when they come to L3 to recruit, they will be speaking with pilots who have been held to a standard of performance necessary for success in the aviation industry.
