On Friday, February 2, representatives from Envoy flew an Embraer 175 to Grand Prairie to formally welcome Skymates Flight Academy to the Envoy Cadet Program. Envoy’s E175 was open for touring and photos at the Grand Prairie Municipal Airport, where Skymates has recently become a tenant.
In a ceremony held at the new Skymates hangar, attendees heard from Envoy’s Director of Pilot Recruitment, First Officer Natalie Nielsen, as well as American Airlines Director of Pilot Recruiting & Development, Captain David Tatum.
“This Cadet relationship is directly a partnership with Envoy but, indirectly, it’s a partnership with American, and that is very important to us,” said Tatum. “Envoy plays an incredibly critical role, not only in our day-to-day operation and our network, but also for our pilots.”
Special guests included Grand Prairie Mayor, Ron Jensen, and other city officials who came to welcome Skymates to the city of Grand Prairie. Following the ceremony and BBQ luncheon, guests were able to get up close and personal with the E175.
Welcome Skymates – We’re happy to have you as our partner!
