Our Airline Relationships

Our L3Harris Flight Academy has strong relationships with 11 regional airlines from around the USA.

Relationships that matter

Our relationships with 11 regional airlines drive a seamless transition from cadet to Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) to pilot.


Who we work with

Our partners regularly visit our Florida campus to speak with cadets and CFIs about career opportunities across the industry—you’ll have the opportunity to develop strong, rewarding relationships with multiple regional airlines throughout your time with L3Harris Flight Academy. Even more so, this foundational network features pathways to major airlines such as Delta, American Airlines, and United Airlines.

I owe my transition from airport planner to airline pilot in under 3 years to the training and work environment fostered by the leadership of the L3Harris Flight Academy. It would not have been possible without their commitment to students and employees!
