Career Path Programs

United is proud to help train our next generation of pilots with our Career Path Programs. By partnering with select United Express carriers and Lufthansa Aviation Training, United offers a quick and defined path for those seeking to become a first officer with us.


Career Path Programs offer a defined path to a First officer position at United for qualified pilots at United Express carriers CommutAir, ExpressJet, Air Wisconsin and Mesa Airlines.

United has welcomed a significant number of new First Officers from their successful participation in Career Path Programs and we look forward to continuing these partnerships.

Each carrier has specific program requirements. United closely monitors training, dependability and discipline records of all participants throughout their involvement in the program.

Please visit each partner’s website for complete program details and how to apply.
