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 an alternative path to traditional hiring for qualified pilots at United Express carriers CommutAir, ExpressJet and Air Wisconsin

In 2018, 35 percent of United’s new hires will be from Career Path Programs, compared to 30 percent in 2017

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