How the Cadet XDirect™ Program Works

Step 1 - NOW - Enroll at L3Harris

Enroll in the Accelerated Airline Pilot Track. This program includes airline-oriented training that takes you to Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) in as little as 12 months.

Step 2 - Build Your Experience as a CFI

All student pilots completing AAPT program are guaranteed an interview to become a CFI with L3Harris, so you can earn money while building flight hours.

Step 3 - Apply for the Cadet XDirect™ Program

At 1,000 hours of total time, L3Harris CFIs are eligible to apply for the Cadet XDirect™ Program. After the application and interview process, if selected, you will be given a conditional job offer to join GlobalX as a First Officer once you attain 1,500 hours. 

Step 4 - Assigned a Mentor

While working on your last 500 hours of flight time, you're assigned a current GlobalX pilot as a mentor. The mentor will help guide and prepare you for the transition from L3Harris CFI to GlobalX pilot. This provides valuable networking and additional training opportunities right from the start of your pilot career!
