Big news and big hearts at Envoy

Envoy saw a wide range of action in September from new Cadet Program partner schools, record-breaking pilot classes and hurricane-relief efforts across the system. Beginning after Harvey devastated the Texas coast, an Envoy new-hire class collaborated to bring in toiletries, bottles of water and cash donations to be sent to DFW-area shelters housing displaced hurricane victims.

“We just wanted to pitch in and help the people of Houston,” said new-hire First Officer Michael Bond. “A few of my classmates live in Houston and have family there. It’s not much, but we hope it helps.”

After Hurricane Irma hit the Florida coast, Envoy sent a crew to Key West supplied with water, non-perishable goods, four electric generators, cleaning supplies and more. The flight also carried more than 150 hot meals to provide to employees and U.S. service members who were deployed at the airport.

Back in Irving at Envoy’s headquarters, a record-breaking pilot class began training on September 25 with 64 new hires! This is the largest class the Envoy training center has ever seen, and it’s a good signal for the future at Envoy.

A big boost to Envoy’s pilot numbers comes from its Cadet Program partner schools, and Envoy just brought on one more – and it’s a big one. Envoy will officially welcome CAE to begin hiring Envoy cadets as Certified Flight Instructors to provide training at CAE’s academy in Phoenix, Arizona.

As part of the program, cadets will benefit from gaining experience in a professional environment while building the 1,500 required flying hours to advance their career.

“We’re delighted to formally welcome CAE to Envoy’s Cadet Program,” said Ric Wilson, Vice President Flight Operations. “As CAE is one of the leading and most respected training organizations in the world, Cadets can expect the highest training quality.”

Together with industry-leading pay, a direct path to American Airlines and a fantastic benefits package, Envoy is the best choice for pilots beginning a career with a regional airline.
