SkyWest Airlines is excited to provide a more streamlined and efficient pathway for CSA students to transition into a flying career at SkyWest through their cadet program.

SkyWest Pilot Pathway Program:

As a partner with SkyWest Airlines, CSA students who meet the requirements may apply to become a pilot cadet through our Pilot Pathway Program. If selected, students will receive unmatched opportunities to interact with SkyWest pilots, and they’ll gain experience that will help them as they transition to becoming a commercial pilot.

Additional Benefits:

  • Increased seniority within their ground school class.
  • An employee number at SkyWest Airlines and credit for time as a cadet for the purposes of benefit eligibility and company seniority.
  • Opportunities to interact with and receive mentor-ship from SkyWest pilots.
  • Leisure travel privileges at the time the cadet has met minimum qualifications to become a first officer and within 30 days of starting SkyWest ground school.
  • A guaranteed final interview for a first officer position at SkyWest Airlines.

Unlike an internship, the Pilot Pathway Program allows students to remain at their campus to complete their flight training until they are able to meet SkyWest’s Airline Transport Pilot standards. Each cadet is individually mentored by SkyWest pilots and may have the opportunity to participate in SkyWest recruiting events and outreach programs.

The SkyWest Pilot Pathway Program prepares a clear path for pilots to launch their career at SkyWest Airlines, where you enjoy the strong culture of professionalism, teamwork and success that SkyWest is known for.
