Record Low Captain Upgrade Time At Envoy Air


Envoy has been on a steady path of growth, and just this month the carrier set a record for the fastest time to upgrade to Captain, at just over four months! The incoming pilot had already obtained the FAA-required Part 121 hours to upgrade almost immediately to Captain.

This year is shaping up to be a banner year for Envoy pilots looking for rapid career progression. Envoy Captains have been moving up to American Airlines via the airline’s unmatched flow-through program at such an increased rate that First Officers are on the fast track to the left seat. To celebrate these career milestones, the airline hosts a special dinner for a dozen or more new Captains every two weeks.

Between 2014 and 2016, the total number of Envoy First Officers who upgraded to Captain was 428. This year alone, Envoy projects a total of nearly 500 upgrades – that’s more than one new Captain every day!

Put all this together with a guaranteed flow-through to American Airlines, industry-leading pay at $60,000 first-year pay, $20,000 retention bonus, free travel and outstanding benefits, and Envoy has quite the enticing package for pilots seeking a fulfilling career in the airline industry.

The airline adds a fourth Crew Base in Miami in September and pilot entering Captain training have the special opportunity to train in Morlaix, France. The possibilities are endless for anyone seeking a fantastic journey and a lucrative, life-long career at Envoy and American Airlines.
