American Eagle Airlines Pilot Recruitment is pleased to announce the Pipeline Instructor Program

American Eagle Airlines has partnered with U.S. Aviation Academy and TransPac Aviation Academy to develop a career path from CFI to Regional Airline Pilot. This exciting new program gives the pilot a secured position at American Eagle Airlines while building time towards the ATP minimum flight experience requirements. Not only does the program provide this streamlined career path..., but instructors are hired and employed by American Eagle while they are still instructing!

What does this mean for the CFI? It means that while flight instructing, you have medical, dental, and vision benefits, as well as travel privileges on American Airlines and American Eagle! Once Pipeline Instructors reach the ATP minimums and 50 hours of multi engine experience, they are placed into new hire pilot training at American Eagle in the next new hire class.

Applying is easy, simply complete an application on www.AirlineApps.com, then send an email with your resume to Pipeline.Instructor@aa.com. Selected applicants will be flown to American Airlines/American Eagle headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas for the interview. Those selected from the recruitment process will then go to interview at one of the partner schools. Once approved by both American Eagle and the flight school, pilots will be hired by American Eagle and work as an instructor at the flight school until reaching ATP minimums.

Minimum Qualifications:
Commercial Pilot Certification with multi-engine and instrument ratings.
CFI and CFII Instructor Certifications
Current FAA First Class Medical
Minimum Age: 21
FCC License
Valid Passport.

Applicants must possess the legal right to work in the United States and have the ability to travel in and out of the US and to all cities/countries served by American Eagle. Ability to work weekends, nights, shifts, holidays and overnight trips. Must fulfill government-required criminal background checks to qualify for unescorted access privileges to airport security identification display areas and secure airport authority and/or U.S. Customs security badges, if applicable. Must be able to read, write, fluently speak and understand the English language.

What's the point for eagle? They'll just use the benefits while instructing and just go elsewhere when they hit 1500. Unless there's some kind of obligation but even then why not just cfi at one of the schools and have your pick at all the regionals when you hit the mins.

Spoken like a true GheyJhet pilot, make a deal and welch on said deal, a true man of your words. News flash not every pilot thinks like you do, just the ones you work with, there actually pilots out there that honor their word, but I wouldn't expect you to understand that, though.

A better question might be if Eagle will even be around in a couple of years.

Better question. When do you get your seniority number? Start of initial at Eagle or when you start your CFI job.
