The airline pilot population is getting too old to keep flying. A recovering airline industry is facing a severe pilot shortages driven by Baby Boomer retirements. Hiring shortfalls are expected to exceed 20,000 pilots, while new pilot applications have been down as much as 80% at some airlines before Covid-19. Airlines keep raising pay, and pilots might earn as much as $7m over their career, but none of this money is available to a student just starting out. Where are the new pilots? Without financial assistance, they'll never have a chance to start. We're the only flight school focused on making training affordable.

By 2025, we’ll be a leader in all-electric aviation, operating the eFlyer line of all-electric, quiet, zero-emissions trainer aircraft. We’ll offer scholarships, loans and income share agreements to 100% of our students without regard to credit ratings or co-signer availability. We'll place over 400 minority pilots into high-pay airline pilot jobs, making the aviation industry a younger, more diverse, innovative community.
