On Wednesday, May 10, student pilots from Utah State University, Westminster College, and Cornerstone Aviation visited Envoy Headquarters for a special behind-the-scenes tour of our operation, guided by Utah State Alumna Envoy Captain Jessica Hines, as well as American Airlines First Officer Mark Davis.
A special Envoy charter flight brought students from Salt Lake City (SLC) to Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), where the group received a tour of Envoy Headquarters, the American Airlines Training Center and Integrated Operations Center, as well as the C.R. Smith Museum.
During their visit, students had the chance to meet and speak with American Airlines’ Director of Pilot Recruitment, Captain David Tatum, who shared that Envoy is American’s single largest source for pilots. He offered insight based on his experience from the field, adding that American’s great leadership team is what sets the airline apart from the pack. Students gained valuable career advice and learned what it takes to run a 24-hour operation, all before heading back to school.
“It was an honor hosting students from my alma mater to see Envoy and American Airlines’ facilities,” said Capt. Hines. “I’d love the chance to work with these students and we hope to see some of them back at Envoy soon!”
Thanks to all the students who signed up to join us – We hope you had as much fun as we did!
