The Airline Academy was founded in 1994 to meet the hiring needs of the airline industry. Competition for airline positions is extremely fierce. Only 5% of airline applications are granted interviews. Approximately 30% of those whoenter an airlines’ in-house training with no prior experience will be released. Airline Academy graduates have a 99% in-house training success rate.  Airline recruiters are eager to hire our graduates and have been doing so since 1995.

Our goal at The Airline Academy has always been to prepare each of our graduates with the competitive edge to succeed in the following areas.

  • Obtain an interview. We pride ourselves in the fact that we work with the airlines to conduct on-site interviews and offer lifetime placement assistance for our graduates.
  • Be hired. By working with the airlines 56% of our students are hired before graduation and we have an 86% placement rate with our graduates.
  • Pass the airlines in-house training. Our curriculum and training methods are frequently updated with input from members of our distinguished airline advisory board which includes some of the brightest in the airline industry.
  • Obtain upward mobility. The sky is the limit when you are prepared with the right information and training.

Some of the most recent changes to the curriculum by are board include….
