Skyborne Airline Academy is partnering with Delta Air Lines as a flight training provider for the Delta Propel Program, the airline’s pilot career pathway. Skyborne will train candidates from the program’s Company Pathway through to commercial and certified flight instructor (CFI) ratings, as part of their journey to becoming a First Officer.  

To train at Skyborne, Delta Propel participants must be Delta employees who hold a Private Pilot License (PPL) certificate and have worked at the airline for more than three years. Applicants must undergo Delta’s selection process which includes an online Pilot Assessment, an in-person interview, and psychological testing. Following selection, trainees will receive a qualified job offer to become a Delta pilot. After flight instructing at Skyborne to ATP minimums and working 42 months or less at a Delta Connection carrier, Propel participants will transition to a pilot position at Delta.

Skyborne has established partnerships with several of the world’s leading air carriers. Skyborne cadets in the Delta Propel Program will train at Skyborne’s campus in Vero Beach, Florida, in single-engine Piper Warrior aircraft for approximately 10-11 months.
