SkyWest Pilot Pathway Program.


L3 Airline Academy and SkyWest Airlines have come together to provide L3 cadets with access to resources and guidance to make a seamless transition from flight school training to an Airline career!

SkyWest Pilot Pathway Program

The SkyWest Pilot Pathway Program provides a direct path to the flight deck for exceptional pilots with a desire to take control of their aviation careers.

L3 Cadets and Instructors who meet the requirements may apply to become a SkyWest Cadet through their Pilot Pathway Program. If selected, cadets can receive up to $15,000 in tuition reimbursement towards their training at L3 Airline Academy!

Program Benefits
  • Up to $15,000 in Tuition Reimbursement
  • Company seniority for benefits eligibility
  • Guaranteed final interview for SkyWest First Officer position
  • Top seniority at SkyWest ground school
  • Access to SkyWest Pilot mentors
  • Enhanced introduction to SkyWest, including flight and lodging to SLC, tour of facilities, and more.

Unlike an internship, the SkyWest Pilot Pathway Program allows students to remain at the L3 Airline Academy campus, in Sanford Florida, to complete their flight training until they are able to meet SkyWest's Airline Transport Pilot standards. Each pilot is individually mentored by SkyWest pilots and may have the opportunity to participate in SkyWest recruiting events and outreach programs on their way to fulfilling commercial pilot jobs.
