Last week, members of the Envoy team had the opportunity to attend the annual EAA AirVenture Oshkosh aviation event in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. This year’s event earned the tagline of “Unlike Anything Else” after hosting a record 650,000 attendees.
Stated by EAA CEO and Chairman of the Board, Jack Pelton, “2022’s fly in proved to be unlike anything else. We had seven days of nearly perfect weather along with this year’s programs and activities, which brought out people and airplanes in numbers that we haven’t seen before.”
Envoy Maintenance and Pilot recruiters were on-site for the week, “Recruiting the best of aviation talent,” shared Austin Decker, Envoy Air Operations Outreach Manager. “Pilots from around the world gather to enjoy the week-long air show and this is a great opportunity to talk to them about their next steps with Envoy Air and American Airlines.” The team was able to share more about the programs and careers that Envoy offers, and also conducted on-site interviews.
“The Air Operations Recruitment team also hosted a dinner for Envoy Cadets, employees and applicants” continued Austin. “Our Vice President of Flight Operations, Captain Ric Wilson, addressed the crowd and shared the exciting new improvements to Envoy’s pay and quality of life for Pilots.”
Eric Rose, Envoy’s Air Operations Recruitment Manager, said “Our presence representing the maintenance side of Envoy was quite impactful. We were fortunate to have met with a considerable number of vocational schools which improved our overall outreach efforts in recruiting freshly graduated mechanics.” Overall, the team had a great time connecting with the thousands of aviation enthusiasts in attendance at the “World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration”.
