Our military pilots train at a convenient location in Trenton, New Jersey. After completing your training requirements, you’ll be on your way to a guaranteed job with American Airlines.
Speaking as a former Blackhawk pilot, the decision we make to leave the military for the airlines is not one taken lightly. We can only hope to find a company that will share some of the same values we have become accustomed to in the Armed Forces such as integrity, loyalty and professionalism. As a First Officer at Piedmont Airlines, I can honestly say this company has fulfilled that commitment.
