JetBlue is doing a similar program. It's nice to see airlines being proactive, and good on both of them.

Their program is a four year program from no experience, through ATP, including instructor rating.

That's interesting to know. For real, I've been seriously considering a career change heading in that direction.

These two are going to be the pilot programs. If they work, you can expect to see more airlines following suit.

I'll be keeping a close eye on that (as well as on what this election means for the ACA and physician reimbursements).

That is awesome, from what I gather anyone can fly a plane within reason. If you're physically, mentally and intellectually able to board a plane, learn to fly it and not have a mental breakdown during flight... Dare I say it, you could be a pilot!

I've knew a few pilots without actually knowing they had a licence to fly, I could say the same about gun owners here in the UK too. Modesty has it's ways but so does money, these gun owners and licensed pilots were always of a certain sect of society if you know what I mean.

It'll probably play out like higher education did for the masses after WWII, eventually anybody could be a pilot within reasonable terms... I swear something just hit my shiny hat saying that.

I'd love to have some wings, heck I'm still in my 20's. With a bit of education and decent character references maybe I could be flying you to where you need to go in 5-7 years.

Nonesense, a brick can fly with enough velocity.

It depends on how you define flying I guess, the flying squirrel comes to mind haha.

Or maybe things like this:


We've been making stupid things "fly" for a while.
