Jazz Adds Sault College Flight Instructors To Career Pathway Program

Expands Relationship That Dates Back To 2007

Jazz Aviation has announced a further commitment to Canada's current and future flight instructors with an enhanced agreement between the airline's Jazz Aviation Pathway Program and Sault College of Applied Arts and Technology.

"To support quality flight training in Canada, airlines need to continue to develop pathways that encourage new pilots to become instructors, without affecting their opportunity to become an airline pilot if they wish. Through this new agreement, the Jazz APP will provide an opportunity for top instructors at Sault College to further their professional pilot careers," said Steve Linthwaite, Vice President, Flight Operations, Jazz. "We are proud to be fully engaged with Sault College's program as we continue to cultivate strong futures for pilots in the Canadian aviation industry."

Jazz and Sault College have a strong history dating back to the inception of the Jazz APP in 2007 and are pleased to now extend the Jazz APP opportunity to top Sault College flight instructors. In order for these top flight instructors to have an opportunity for employment as a professional pilot with Jazz, they must be recommended by Sault College and meet comprehensive experience criteria.

"The agreement provides another option and tremendous incentive to our graduates and, as a result, Sault College will continue to look forward to further building on and solidifying what we believe is already a great relationship with Jazz," said Greg Mapp, Chair, Aviation Technology – Flight, Sault College.

Since 2007, Jazz has been actively involved in shaping the curriculum and training of Canada's future professional pilots through active engagement with aviation colleges and universities. In 2015, Jazz rebranded these efforts under the Jazz Aviation Pathway Program banner. To date, Jazz has announced agreements between the Jazz APP and the following institutions and organizations:

Aviation Colleges, Flight Schools, and Universities:

  • Algonquin College
  • Centre québécois de formation aéronautique at Cégep de Chicoutimi
  • Conestoga College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning
