Five Ways Student Pilots Ruin Their Careers

College is fun, and it’s your chance to learn and grow as an adult. But too many aspiring pilots make decisions in college that disrupt or damage their careers. Here’s how some student pilots ruin their careers:

They don’t consider the consequences
You’re away from home for the first time and everything is exciting. Don’t let bad judgment get you into trouble. Mistakes that you make in college (such as a DUI) will follow you into your professional career. Reckless or irresponsible behavior at 18 could ruin your chance to fly.

Piedmont Announces Pilot Partnership with Infinity Flight Group

Piedmont Airlines Announces Pilot Partnership with Infinity Flight Group

SALISBURY, Maryland - Piedmont Airlines, a wholly owned subsidiary of the American Airlines Group Inc., is pleased to announce a new partnership with Infinity Flight Group in Trenton, New Jersey, to provide a well-defined career path for pilots to American Airlines. 

Starting immediately, Piedmont Airlines will offer conditional employment and tuition reimbursement to select Certified Flight Instructors (CFIs) at Infinity.  Once a CFI reaches the required ATP minimums, he or she will join Piedmont as a first officer, and eventually transition to American Airlines.
