Your Future in Focus: Career Advancement Program provides a clear view ahead for Endeavor pilots A new contractual career progression program will provide Endeavor Air pilots a guaranteed pathway to Delta Air Lines – no testing or interview required. Endeavor announced the Career Advancement Program (CAP), which guarantees direct career progression to Delta Air Lines for all Endeavor pilots. Pilots who begin their career at Endeavor and desire to work at Delta will have an opportunity to transfer to Endeavor’s mainline partner. “At Endeavor, pilots are trained to fly in the Delta brand and operation every day,” said Jim Graham, CEO of Endeavor Air. “They have worked hard to build a solid reputation for safety, operational excellence, and professionalism, and this has earned them a guaranteed seat at our mainline partner.” The CAP is the result of a three-way negotiation between Delta, Endeavor, and the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) that represents Endeavor pilots. Pilots who maintain a good employment record at Endeavor and who achieve the objective hiring criteria outlined in the program will be eligible to go to Delta in as little as four and a half years. Endeavor was the first regional airline to begin hiring pilots again in March 2021, after the pandemic put a pause on all hiring for most of 2020 and early 2021. Endeavor has welcomed more than 400 new pilots in 2021, and pilot candidates have been assigned class dates through June 2022. “Whether you are just starting or continuing to advance your airline career, Endeavor is a great choice,” said Graham. “And, if Delta is your ultimate destination, Endeavor is without a doubt the best place to start.”
To be eligible for CAP, pilots will be required to spend a minimum of 4½ years of active service at Endeavor, with 24 months as Captain. Full program guidelines can be found on www.endeavorair.com/pilots
