United States : What Theyre Saying About the Forces to Flyers Research Initiative.

Airlines for America (A4A), the industry trade organization for the leading U.S. airlines, today applauded the Volpe National Transportation Systems Centers announcement of an initiative to help non-pilot veterans become commercial pilots.

Todays announcement is a tremendous step in helping our nations veterans gain high-paying, high-quality jobs as commercial pilots. As the U.S. airlines continue to grow, demand for pilots is on the rise and this program will prove to be pivotal in filling those positions, said A4A President and CEO Nicholas E. Calio. We look forward to welcoming those from the program into our network of passionate employees who operate the 27,000 flights each day that carry more than 2 million passengers and 50,000 tons of cargo.
