Horizon and CWU Aviation Launch Pilot Development Program

Horizon has partnered with Central Washington University to provide a defined path and financial assistance for talented aviators to become airline pilots.  Our industry-leading Pilot Development Program allows students opportunities to develop skills and gain flying experience through mentoring and a key financial stipend.​  Students that have earned their private pilot license are eligible, so long as they commit to flight instructing at Central Washington University after graduation and flying for Horizon Air for a minimum of two years once they have their R-ATP minimums.

Qualified students may apply at the Horizon Air jobs website.  Please contact the department for additional details.
