As a McAir flight student, you have access to partners and pathways. 
Check out some of what we offer below!

Partnerships are intended to provide the aviation industry with a pipeline of prospective pilots. These partnerships are available to interested McAir Aviation students and McAir Certified Flight Instructors.*

Allegiant Altitude Pilot Pathway

The Altitude Pilot Pathway is unique among partnerships between airlines and flight schools because it seeks to reduce the financial barriers that many would-be cadets face when training to become a pilot. Allegiant’s Loan payment direct to lender could pay up to $50,000 of student pilot training debt after three years of flying for Allegiant and meeting the airline’s performance standards.

Envoy Airlines

Envoy works directly with McAir to interview and recruit our paid flight instructors. Those chosen enjoy all the benefits of being an Envoy employee; including medical, travel privileges, and a retirement plan. Cadets begin building vacation and sick time, which can be used once hired as a First Officer.

Envoy’s Cadet Pathway is designed to help the most promising future pilots make a smooth transition from the classroom to the cockpit. Upon becoming a Cadet Instructor for Envoy and at the time of signing a two-year employment agreement with Envoy, candidates have the opportunity to receive a one-time $5000 tuition assistance payment borrowed from their First Officer sign-on bonus. This bonus can only be selected at the time of contract signing.

SkyWest Airlines

SkyWest Airlines works with McAir Aviation to offer a pathway for future pilots! Unlike some internships in the aviation industry today, participants receive compensation if they are chosen to continue from student to flight instructor at McAir.

McAir Flight Instructors, have the opportunity to enter the Pilot Pathway. Upon acceptance, cadets receive preferential consideration for employment at SkyWest Airlines. The pathway creates a path to bridge the gap between the completion of CFI and the 1,500-hour flight time requirement for the ATP Certificate.
