Republic Airline, Lewis University Sign College’s First Pilot Partnership

Agreement Represents The 23Rd Such Partnership For Republic, Offering Students A Defined Career Path In Commercial Aviation

Republic Airline has signed a partnership agreement with Lewis University for pilot development and career progression, the college aviation program’s first agreement with an airline. With the addition of this aviation program, Republic now works with 23 schools across the United States to help students fast-track their careers as commercial airline pilots.

“Pilot development opportunities continue to be a primary focus at Republic. We’re thrilled that Lewis University is joining our cadre of flight program partners,” said Tonya Gilbert, Republic Airline Managing Director of Talent Acquisition and Associate Experience. “Our increased engagement and support on campus allows students — and their parents and guardians — to see the future they can have in the airlines, hopefully attracting more students to the college programs and the career.”

The partnership enables flight students at collegiate aviation programs to interview with the airline as early as their sophomore year. Students meeting Republic’s qualifications will receive a conditional offer of employment, transitional support to Republic’s commercial training program, and be eligible to receive a signing bonus of as much as $15,000. Republic pilots train to fly the Embraer E170 and E175 aircraft, the most advanced commercial aircraft in our industry.

“This partnership formalizes our Republic Airline relationship, which our students already have benefited from in recent years on an informal basis,” said Dr. Ryan Phillips, co-chair of Aviation Transportation Studies at Lewis University. “This agreement serves as a launch pad for many more opportunities for our students in the future.”
