Step 1 - Enroll at L3Harris
The first step in your journey to becoming an airline pilot is to enroll in our Professional Pilot Program or Airline Pilot Track. Both of these programs include accredited curriculum and airline oriented training that can take you from no experience to becoming a Certified Flight Instructor in as little as 15 months!
Step 2 - Join Endeavor's STEP
The next step is to apply to the Endeavor STEP, a program to help cadets and Flight Instructors prepare for a successful career as a pilot!
Step 3 - Build your experience
Those that complete our Professional Pilot Program or Airline Pilot Track are guaranteed an interview to flight instruct at L3Harris in Florida. Our Instructors fly an average of 100 hours per month and 96% of our cadets who stay at L3Harris to instruct are placed at an airline!
Step 4 - Become an airline pilot
After reaching the FAA mandated 1500 hours of flight time, you will be eligible to earn your Airline Transport Pilot Certificate. As part of Endeavor's STEP, a recruiter will come to L3Harris campus for your interview. As an Endeavor First Officer, you will have an earnings potential of $61k to $72k!
Step 5 - Fly at Delta Air Lines
Endeavor Air is the only regional carrier to offer pilots a defined career path to Delta Air Lines. Each month, the names of 24 eligible Endeavor pilots will be submitted to Delta as part of the Delta Guaranteed Interview (DGI) Program.
