New Scholarships and Internship Program Announced!

At FullThrottle Aviation, we believe that the entire aviation industry can benefit from investing in our next generation of pilots. That time period from 250 hours as a new commercial pilot to the next flying job can be difficult, and unfortunately there are people out there who are wanting pilots to pay for flight time. We believe that new low time commercial pilots can benefit from flying an array of different airplanes on long cross countries, and we are offering an internship program for this reason – free of charge!

See information below on both programs.

INTERNSHIP INFORMATION: We are already accepting applications for the internship program. We are limiting the internships to the number of current ferry pilots we have. Send an email with your resume, hours, and how you would benefit from the program to: education@fullthrottleaviationllc.com

SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION: We have also decided to give away 3 scholarships to help the next generation of pilots succeed.

In 2017 we are offering two (2) flight training scholarships at $1000 each, and one (1) ATOP course scholarship (valued at $495). The window for applications begins on April 1, 2017 and ends on August 15, 2017. Winners will be announced prior to September 30.

An overview of the programs is below and can also be found on the website under “Community Outreach”.

FullThrottle Aviation Internship & Mentoring Program

We are now offering an internship program to introduce new pilots to ferry flying and a wide variety of interesting aircraft. After acceptance, the intern will be paired with a current FullThrottle Aviation ferry pilot who will be able to answer questions and provide career advice to the intern. If a ferry becomes available with an open seat, the interns will be notified of the dates, aircraft type, origin/destination, and ferry pilot name. If the intern is available, then they will coordinate coming along with the ferry pilot doing the trip. In many cases, the intern can expect to do some of the flying, as well as receive instruction if the ferry pilot is a CFI. This could mean getting an endorsement and time in a wide variety of different planes. This is not a paid internship. The intern will have all expenses covered (except travel) during the trip.

Applicant Requirements:

  • Current commercial pilot with an instrument rating
  • Current 2nd or 1st class medical
  • Under 500 hours Total Time

Program details:

  • Interns will be allowed to join a current FullThrottle Aviation ferry pilot on up to 100 hours of ferry flying.
  • The intern pilot will be responsible for their own transportation to the commercial airport at the origin and destination of the trip.
  • The intern pilot will have all their expenses paid for while traveling (accommodation, meals).
  • Intern pilots will be expected to share the accommodations as long as both the intern and FullThrottle ferry pilot agree.

How to apply:

  • Send an email describing why you want to be a part of the program and how it will benefit you in your career.
  • Attach a current resume.
  • You may be contacted for an interview.

Any questions about the program or applications should be sent to education@fullthrottleaviationllc.com
