Avelo Airlines and US Aviation Academy (USAA) are partnering to create a pathway for aviation-career minded students.

Students and instructors at USAA can become pilots or maintenance technicians with Avelo Airlines through accelerated aviation programs available at USAA. Avelo and USAA’s partnership will support students in successfully completing their training and launching their careers.  

The addition of USAA to Avelo’s existing portfolio of pilot recruiting partners will further supplement Avelo’s aggressive growth plans. Avelo expects to hire as many as 160 pilots over the next year. The airline is accepting applications now for anticipated First Officer openings beginning in October. 

USAA has been training professional pilots since 2006. Students become instructors as they fulfill the requirements to become a career professional pilot.  The accelerated programs put students on the right track to obtain a commercial or flight instructor certificate in as few as nine months at any of its five locations:  Denton (DTO), Fort Worth (AFW), Conroe (CXO), Cape Girardeau (CGI), and Poughkeepsie (POU).
