Cadet Program

Expedite your path to First Officer, while you build your flight hours.

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.

And to keep the growth momentum at Envoy, the Company is launching an attractive program for existing and new cadets to earn up to $15,000 in bonuses to aspiring aviators who join the Envoy Cadet Program. This new bonus, combined with Envoy’s existing First Officer bonus structure, creates an overall incentive package of up to $30,000 for joining Envoy as a cadet.

Once you are employed as a Flight Instructor at one of our numerous affiliate programs, we may 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.
