Sling Pilot Academy and SkyWest  Airlines Elite PartnershipPilot Pathway Program

Sling Pilot Academy, a flight school providing accelerated airline pilot training using Next-Generation aircraft and innovative flight training methods, is pleased to announce its Elite Partnership with SkyWest Airlines. Through the partnership, eligible Sling Pilot Academy students have direct access to SkyWest’s Pilot Pathway Program and qualify for elite access to partnership benefits.

SkyWest’s Pilot Pathway Program provides a clear path for students to launch their pilot careers and offers company benefits including enhanced seniority, access to experienced pilot mentors, interview prep, and guaranteed final interview for a first officer position at SkyWest.

Wayne Toddun, Co-CEO of Sling Pilot Academy says: “We couldn’t be happier to be partnering with SkyWest Airlines, which has already provided the next career step to many of our graduates. With this new partnership we expect to supply even more graduates to SkyWest and we know they will do well. SkyWest Airlines has a fantastic reputation for quality training. Many of our graduates have also expressed that the experience gained flying and teaching in our all-glass cockpit Sling NGT trainers made it easier for them to transition into flying commercial aircraft at SkyWest.”

As an Elite Partner, eligible Sling Pilot Academy students can also enjoy additional benefits such as $15,000 tuition reimbursement through certain program milestones, exclusive workshops and other events, and access to a direct SkyWest liaison committed to Sling Pilot Academy students.
