Wayman Aviation Academy, one of the newest aviation colleges in Florida, has entered into a partnership with Spirit Airlines through their Spirit Wings Pilot Pathway program. The program will provide graduates with easily accessible, local mentorship with Spirit Airlines pilots and a fast track to a career in aviation as a First Officer with the airline.

According to the school, what this partnership unique is that Wayman Aviation is the only flight college in the country, and in Spirit’s program, that trains future pilots using Competency Based Training & Assessment (CBTA), a standard of flight training recommended by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

Wayman Aviation will not only be helping Spirit Airlines tackle the pilot shortage by sending pilots into their ranks sooner, thanks to this program and Wayman’s R-ATP certification. They will also provide pilots armed with CBTA training and an associate's degree in aviation sciences.

Their headquarters are located only 15 minutes apart in Broward County, Florida.
