Mesa Pilot Development Announces New Training School, Expanded Programs

School Has Graduated Over 1,100 Professional Pilots

Mesa Pilot Development has opened a new training facility located at Phoenix–Mesa Gateway Airport in Mesa, AZ. In conjunction with the opening of its training facility, Mesa Pilot Development has significantly expanded the training opportunities for individuals interested in becoming aviation professionals. With the opening of its newest training facility, Mesa Pilot Development will begin offering a full range of training opportunities and FAA certificates to interested candidates. Courses offered will range from training individuals with no flight experience through training courses designed for individuals interested in becoming professional pilots. For the first time, Mesa Pilot Development will offer its training program to individuals who are not enrolled in an affiliated degree based program, thereby significantly expanding the access of this valuable training and eliminating the unnecessary expenses associated with a non-airline academic course curriculum.

“Mesa Pilot Development has a proven history of graduating the highest caliber professional pilots who are now employed in virtually every sector of the aviation industry," said Jonathan Ornstein, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Mesa Air Group. "Through this expansion of the Mesa Pilot Development program, we are set to meet the needs of the next generation of aviation professionals and believe that Mesa Pilot Development offers opportunities that are unmatched throughout the industry."

Since its founding in 1989, Mesa Pilot Development has graduated over 1100 professional pilots. In addition to its proven training program, Mesa Pilot Development offers postgraduate employment opportunities that other training programs cannot match, including guaranteed interviews at Mesa Airlines, Inc. for candidates successfully completing the required professional pilot training courses. This exclusive arrangement with Mesa Airlines has resulted in the direct employment of over 800 professional pilots, and will place graduates into first officer positions operating state-of-the-art regional jet aircraft. In addition, in anticipation of the FAA’s pending increase in minimum flight experience to serve as an airline transport pilot, Mesa has created an industry first program to assist graduates in gaining the 1500 hours of flight experience necessary to serve as an airline first officer. This program will eliminate thousands of dollars of training expenses for candidates accepted into the program.
