Yet More Fishers Of Fresh Pilots


Monday’s AVweb story about the lack of new pilot starts drew a response from multiple sources, including the folks at Pilot Journey, who have been busy thinking up multiple ways to help flight schools keep busy. Latest from the Nashville, Tenn., company is an effort to help international students locate and apply to U.S. flight schools. Pilot Journey will facilitate the official paperwork, find English lessons, and match the student to schools that offer whatever kind of training they want. The company, established in 2001, also offers a $99 Discovery Flight at over 800 flight schools, and says it’s been signing up about 1,000 people a month. Their Web site also offers links and information to those looking for more information about how to become a pilot.
