The highly-successful University Gateway Program, a four-way collaboration with JetBlue Airways, Cape Air, the University of North Dakota (UND) and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU), has added another airline. Atlanta-based ExpressJet Airlines will partner with Cape Air to provide a parallel path for aspiring pilots to join JetBlue. The Gateway Program has been designed to facilitate the early-entry of highly-qualified pilots from Aviation Accredited Board International (AABI) programs, who have appropriate flight instructor experience, into Cape Air, where they further hone their skills. After gaining their Captain's credentials at Cape Air, pilots can choose to interview with ExpressJet. If accepted, they will be slotted for a training class providing valuable time as pilots in command. They then will be eligible for a final interview with JetBlue after gaining their necessary hours.
