FlightSafety Expands Its Long-Term Agreement With Envoy Air

Grows Role As A Pilot Cadet Program Partner

FlightSafety International announces a significant expansion of its long-term partnership with Envoy Air. FlightSafety Academy in Vero Beach, Florida has been selected to serve as a partner in the Envoy Pilot Cadet Program.

Those who desire to become a professional airline pilot now have direct access to a program that starts with FlightSafety Academy’s high quality ab initio training and leads to employment opportunities with FlightSafety, Envoy Air and American Airlines.  “Students entering FlightSafety Academy through the Envoy Pilot Cadet Program will receive the most comprehensive and safety-focused training and then benefit from employment opportunities with FlightSafety, Envoy Air and American Airlines,” said Nancy Ritter, Manager, FlightSafety Academy. “We expect that those entering the program will qualify to join Envoy as a first officer in just over two years.”

FlightSafety has served American Airlines and its subsidiaries including Envoy Air, Piedmont Airlines and PSA Airlines for more than 20 years. As the exclusive training services provider for Envoy Air, FlightSafety supports the training of pilots who fly the Bombardier CRJ 700, Embraer ERJ145 and Embraer E175 aircraft. This includes the use of eight dedicated full flight simulators at FlightSafety Learning Centers in Dallas and Houston as well as others located throughout FlightSafety’s network.

FlightSafety Academy offers a wide variety of programs tailored to the specific needs of domestic and international airlines, government and military agencies, other flight training organizations, and individuals with no prior flight experience. The 160 professionals, including more than 70 highly qualified and experienced Certified Flight Instructors who work at the Academy, help to ensure that graduates are prepared to fly safely, and operate an aircraft efficiently and effectively.

The Academy’s fleet of close to 90 aircraft includes 20 new Piper Warriors, 6 new Piper Arrows as well as Seminole aircraft equipped with Garmin G500/650 series avionics. The aircraft are maintained to the highest standards and exceed FAA maintenance inspection requirements. Students fly out of an ATC controlled airport with instrument approaches under an airline style dispatch operation. The 30-acre campus is equipped with a full array of training tools including multi-media classrooms, flight training devices, and an Air Traffic Control communications lab. The Academy has on-site accommodations for 300, a comprehensive library, pilot shop, and other amenities typical of a university.
