Pan Am International Flight Academy Signs Agreement with Swift Air

Posted on Tuesday 25th October 2016 | Airline

Pan Am International Flight Academy has signed a Strategic Alliance Agreement and Hiring Pipeline Agreement with Swift Air LLC, to provide qualified pilot applicants to the airline.

As part of the agreement, Pan Am will partner with Swift Air to support Swift Air’s pilot hiring. Pan Am will offer a comprehensive training solution that will include graduate pilots from the Pan Am Career Pilot Academy in Florida. Qualified applicants will have the opportunity to interview with Swift Air and Pan Am will offer Jet Transition and Initial Type Training on Swift Air Fleet Types as part of this program. 

Jeff Conry, CEO of Swift Air expressed enthusiasm for the agreement: "Pan Am has the experience and resources to make this work for us. It will save us a lot of time and money trying to fil seats on our own."

Boris van Lier, COO, added: "This strategic alliance with Pan Am offers a comprehensive end-to-end program capable of providing Swift with qualified pilots with all the proper ratings and licenses, ensuring all applicants meet the strict proficiency standards we require."

Mark Johnson, executive vice president for Pan Am agreed: "Being the seamless training resource for airlines like Swift Air, where we combine Career Pilot Training followed immediately with Commercial Airline Training at our Miami or Las Vegas facilities, is what Pan Am is all about and is the current focus of our company. This end-to-end 'training-recruiting-hiring' cycle helps everyone - the airline, the student recruit, and our industry as we meet the ever growing demand for trained pilots."
