Students in Envoy’s Cadet Program will join the growing network of the largest regional carrier of American Airlines.


IRVING, Texas – Envoy Air Inc., the largest wholly owned regional airline subsidiary of American Airlines Group Inc, continues its growth momentum this year as it offers up to $15,000 in bonuses to aspiring aviators who join the Envoy Cadet Program.

With the recent announcement that Envoy will operate three new Embraer E175 aircraft for American, the company’s E175 fleet will grow to over 100 aircraft, with deliveries to be completed by the end of 2022. This growth represents an excellent opportunity for aspiring pilots to join Envoy and the growing network of American’s largest regional carrier.

As a result of this growth, Envoy is launching an attractive program for existing and new cadets to earn $15,000 in bonuses, earn money while building flight hours, receive an on-boarding bonus, industry-leading training, comprehensive benefits, and free travel. Collectively this new bonus, combined with Envoy’s existing First Officer bonus structure, creates an overall incentive package of $30,000 for joining Envoy as a cadet.

“We’re building upon the strengths of our industry-leading Cadet Program and delivering more value to future pilots with this new bonus structure,” said Capt. Ric Wilson, Envoy’s Vice President of Flight Operations. “It is no secret that we hire the best of the best, and this program will allow us to continue offering the most promising future pilots a golden opportunity to make a smooth transition from the classroom to the flight deck of an Envoy regional jet, with a defined path to fly for American Airlines.”

Envoy promises endless opportunities for pilots to develop their careers and an expanded flight network for a regional airline. In addition to the new E175s that will be added to the fleet, late last year, Envoy operated its first flight from Miami (MIA), its largest regional hub, to South America with E175 service to San Andrés, Colombia (ADZ). Envoy also added MIA service to Chetumal, Mexico (CTM), Dominica (DOM), and Anguilla (AXA). The expansion has continued this year with new service from Austin, Texas (AUS), to Montego Bay, Jamaica.
