Frontier Airlines Launches Cadet Program to Create Pathway for New Pilots


Up to 35 Cadets per Month to be Accepted into the Program Which Requires No Prior Flying Experience

Ultra-low fare carrier Frontier Airlines (NASDAQ: ULCC) is launching a cadet program to train the next generation of Frontier pilots. The program, operated in partnership with ATP Flight School, will welcome up to 35 individuals per month who seek to become commercial airline pilots. No prior flying experience is required.

Cadets will receive assistance in applying for financial aid to help offset training and living expenses with the program lasting approximately 24 months. During the program period participants will receive certain Frontier benefits.

“This is an exciting opportunity for anyone who has ever dreamed of becoming a commercial airline pilot,” said Brad Lambert, vice president of flight operations, Frontier Airlines. “We are putting this program in place to not only train future pilots but to help them overcome the barriers to entry people may encounter when trying to pursue an aviation career. We are thrilled to embark on this journey that will lead us to a new generation of Frontier Airlines pilots.”

Cadets must be at least 19 years old, willing to relocate, and clear a background check. An associate degree or higher is preferred but not required. Participants’ progress will be monitored throughout the program and they must pass all required tests as well as obtain all necessary certifications prior to becoming a Frontier pilot. Partnerships with aviation university programs will be integrated, as well, to create a complete academic training experience.

Individuals who are interested in the program may visit beginning August 1 for additional information and to access the application.
