Envoy’s Cadet Program is designed to help the most promising university and commercial flight school student pilots make a smooth transition from the classroom to the regional cockpit.
Envoy will place you as a paid Flight Instructor at one of our numerous affiliate programs, offer you financial assistance* and provide you with all the benefits of being an Envoy employee. Benefits will include travel privileges for you and your immediate family on American Airlines flights; comprehensive health, dental and vision coverage; 401(k) retirement with company match contributions; American Airlines Group profit sharing; and paid vacation and sick time accrual.
Once you complete training as an Envoy First Officer, you will earn a bonus of $10,000, followed by another $8,000 bonus when you complete your first year.*
*Financial assistance paid during your time as a Flight Instructor (currently $5,000) is drawn from your First Officer bonus.
