Trenton, NJ (PRWEB) May 18, 2016
Infinity Flight Group, a flight training school based at the Trenton Mercer Airport in New Jersey is excited to announce that they have just signed a first of it’s kind flow-through agreement with Piedmont Airlines, a subsidiary of American Airlines. The arrangement allows Certified Flight Instructors (CFIs) employed by Infinity to interview with Piedmont Airlines with only 500 hours of flight time. Piedmont will offer conditional employment offers to the selected candidates, and pay a bonus structure for every 100 hours CFIs fly at Infinity until they reach the required ATP minimums. Additionally, program participants will receive a $5000 signing bonus, and allow the candidate to jump from flight instructing one day, to commercial airline pilot at Piedmont, the regional arm of American Airlines, in the shortest time possible. This new agreement also allows Infinity pilots who are hired by Piedmont to be placed on the flow through list for American Airlines.
Gregory John, President of Infinity Flight Group commented, “The Cadet Program with Piedmont is a true win for its participants. Cadets are given a competitive advantage by being able to move directly to the right seat with an airline that has tremendous upgrade and flow though possibilities with American Airlines. Traditionally, pilots have to build time then move to the airlines. This program differs because it gives CFIs the ability to start developing a relationship with a top ranked regional airline and be paid bonuses from the time they start instructing.”
With the predicted pilot shortage, and commercial airlines building their fleets globally, this agreement will ensure a fast rack to success for anyone interested in pursuing a career as an airline pilot.
Infinity Flight is partnered with Mercer County Community College (MCCC) Aviation Degree Program. It manages the flight portion of the MCCC program, which currently has 55 enrolled students.
Infinity offers pilot training services to non-degree flight students and aircraft rental services through its Cessna Pilot Center accreditation.
