Airlines for America (A4A) yesterday applauded the Volpe National Transportation Systems Center’s announcement of an initiative to help non-pilot veterans become commercial pilots.
“Today’s announcement is a tremendous step in helping our nation’s veterans gain high-paying, high-quality jobs as commercial pilots. As the U.S. airlines continue to grow, demand for pilots is on the rise and this program will prove to be pivotal in filling those positions,” said A4A President and CEO Nicholas E. Calio. “We look forward to welcoming those from the program into our network of passionate employees who operate the 27,000 flights each day that carry more than 2 million passengers and 50,000 tons of cargo.”
