WHAT: Rancho High School students will learn about academic and career opportunities in the aviation industry from the following guest speakers:

  • Nelson Perez: Pilot Pathway Coordinator at Aerosim Flight Academy, Perez has been helping students achieve their aviation dreams for more than 10 years. He will discuss training programs and scholarship opportunities.

WHY:
With an anticipated global shortfall of 1 million new commercial airline pilots and maintenance technicians in the next 20 years, Aerosim Flight Academy is dedicated to making an immediate impact in the industry by addressing the tremendous and urgent need for highly skilled pilots and aviation professionals.

To that end, Rancho High School’s Academy of Aviation graduates can easily transition into Aerosim’s pilot training programs, which produce professionals who possess the discipline required of safe, successful airline pilots and exceed the expectations of airlines worldwide.

HOW:
Aerosim Flight Academy offers the “SkyWest Airlines Bridge Program” for students who seek employment with SkyWest Airlines. The program is designed to bridge the gap between completion of Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) certification and building minimum Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) qualifications for employment as a pilot at SkyWest Airlines.

Additionally, the Academy provides new students, who enroll by June 12, 2014 the opportunity to receive up to $10,000 toward their pilot training via the Aerosim Future Pilot Scholarship program.  The scholarship program is available for those who qualify.
