An Excellent Year of Growth at Envoy Air

Envoy Air had a banner year in 2017 for pilot hiring with its re-opening of the New York-LaGuardia crew base, increased pay and signing bonuses, continuing the Rotor Transition Program, faster upgrades to Captain, and unmatched flow-thru to American Airlines.

Envoy also saw growth in its Embraer 175 fleet with 44 aircraft on property by the end of 2017, 10 more to be delivered  in 2018-19 and options held by American for 76 more aircraft.

The most impressive success story at Envoy was the flourishing of the Rotor Transition Program that has hired more than 130 former military helicopter pilots to become airline pilots. The program was created in 2016 as an innovative way to bolster the airline’s pilot pool by helping military veterans transition to a career in commercial aviation.

Envoy looks forward to 2018 with no sign of slowing down, with its commitment to growth, high performance and hiring the best of the best. If you’re interested in joining Envoy, you can visit or email to speak with a recruiter.
