Flyhouse Partners With SWA Destination 225° Pilot Pathways Program

Cadets Will Fly For FlyHouse For A Minimum Of Two Years—Or 12 Months If Operating As A Captain

FlyHouse has partnered with the Southwest Airlines Destination 225° Pilot Pathways Program. Destination 225° is a springboard at Southwest for those seeking an aviation career. 

Budding pilots who aspire to fly in the right seat at Southwest Airlines must complete required coursework, flight training, and all regulatory requirements to apply for their commercial pilot's licenses. Once they do, cadets become certified flight instructors and earn additional hours, potentially qualifying them to fly for FlyHouse, now a Destination 225° flight partner.

Jack Lambert Jr., CEO of FlyHouse, is especially excited about the partnership. He said, "This is an absolute win-win for FlyHouse and Southwest. We benefit by building a team of rising First Officer and Second-in-Command pilots that will come to us through the Destination 225° program. These cadets will fly for FlyHouse for a minimum of two years—or 12 months if operating as a Captain—providing a much-needed level of pilot stability. 

For its part, Southwest can look forward to a stable flow of competitively qualified First Officer candidates once they complete their tenure with FlyHouse, which, by definition, will include ongoing training and the accumulation of requisite flight hours."

To join FlyHouse, Destination 225° program cadets must have graduated from an accredited university with a Part 141 pilot program, or have completed their training through a Destination 225° approved flight training academy, and hold an FAA-issued commercial pilot's license with multi-engine land, instrument airplane ratings. In addition, they must hold (or be eligible to hold) an FAA first-class medical certificate, a valid passport making them eligible for entrance into all countries where FlyHouse operates, and an FCC Restricted Radiotelephone Operator Permit.
