“UVU Aviation is proud to be affiliated with SkyWest Airlines through their Pilot Pathway Program,” aviation department chair, Randy Johnson, said. “The tuition reimbursement aspect of that program will be a tremendous help to our students and will help provide SkyWest with a supply of highly qualified First Officers.”

Eligible students will earn membership in the program while still completing their degree at UVU, and following a successful guaranteed final interview, have the potential to walk into a job with SkyWest upon graduation, as well as receive tuition reimbursement.

The partnership will only benefit students in the aviation program at UVU and creates advancement opportunities for students by helping them find employment post-graduation. This partnership and program incentivize students to build exceptional flight skills and classroom knowledge for careers in aviation.
