Cessna Seeks Pilot-Interns To Show Off The Skycatcher

Ten Paid Positions To Fly To Cessna Events, Write About Them, And Wave The Company Flag

Cessna Aircraft says it is looking for a few good pilots! If you've ever dreamed of flying for one of the world’s leaders in general aviation and getting paid for it, this could be the summer job for you. Cessna will be filling 10 positions this summer to fly and dispatch the 162 Skycatcher throughout the U.S.

What would you have to do?

  • Attend pancake fly-ins, open houses and other events planned by Cessna
  • Take pictures, video and post to Cessna’s social media outlets
  • Travel to Cessna Pilot Centers throughout a defined territory and demo CFI’s
  • Attend the famous EAA Fly-In in Oshkosh, WI and talk with Cessna customers about your experience flying the Skycatcher

Sounds like tough duty for a summer, right?

Applicants should be at least a Junior in college. Field of study is open although Marketing, Business or Aviation Management a plus.

Cessna says the interns should hold at least a CFI rating and 250 hours of flight time, though 500 hours is preferred. Other requirements for the job include:

  • No incident/accident history
  • No FAA action
  • Professional attitude
  • IMC experience, understanding this is a VFR aircraft
  • Recommendation from a university department head
  • Target weight +/- 190 lbs
  • Target height +/- 72”
  • Submission of a video clip and writing samples

To apply for the gig, submit a brief video audition (not to exceed 1 minute in length) of why you should be selected for the summer pilot program. You'll need to either upload your video to YouTube and send us a link to your video (or) save your video clip as a .wmv file and email to Cessna as an attachment. This position will require writing & communicating with fans and followers in different styles and formats. Please develop and submit entries you would post about your first flying experience in the appropriate styles for a blog, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn updates

The applications deadline is April 30th. Submit your resume, writing samples, and video clip to Kriste Weber, HR – Cessna Aircraft Company. (Photo provided by Cessna)
