CommutAir has awarded it first batch of 10 pilots training dates to join United Airlines under the Career Path program, the company said.
Pilot Career Path Program (CPP) is designed to lead participating CommutAir pilots on a clear and reliable path to a United Airlines flight deck.
CommutAir expects the addition of 40 jets to the fleet to drive an accelerated need for pilot hiring and promotions at its Dulles and Newark bases.
CommutAir, operating as United Express, is majority owned by Champlain Enterprises Inc., an airline holding company founded in 1989. CommutAir operates a large fleet of Bombardier Q200/Q300 and Embraer ERJ145 aircraft with more than 650 weekly flights to 29 airports.
