Southwest Airlines, Jet Linx, CAE partner to develop future pilots

Jet Linx has announced it has entered into a partnership with domestic carrier Southwest Airlines and CAE, a pilot training company for civil aviation, to create a unique career pathway for pilots, the company said.

The new program, called Destination 225°, provides motivated and capable candidates with a career path from initial training, to private aviation (Part 135) and to commercial airlines (Part 121), seamlessly bridging all three segments of the industry.

Named for the Southwest heading on a compass rose, Destination 225° addresses one of the industry´s biggest challenges; a defined career path for pilots from initial training through retirement.

Jet Linx Aviation is a private jet company founded in Omaha, Nebraska to offer a more personalized approach to national private jet companies.
