Avelo Airlines Selects Alliance Aviation to Bolster Existing Strong Pilot Pipeline

Alliance’s global Pilot Referral Network will further supplement Avelo’s growth plans

FORT LAUDERDALE and HOUSTON; July 21, 2022— Avelo Airlines announced today it has selected Alliance Aviation to expand the airline’s already healthy pipeline of qualified pilots.  

The addition of Alliance to Avelo’s existing portfolio of pilot recruiting partners will further supplement Avelo’s aggressive growth plans. Avelo expects to hire as many as 160 pilots over the next year. The airline is accepting applications now for anticipated First Officer openings beginning in October.  

Fort Lauderdale-based Alliance is the world’s premier commercial aviation academy with flight training campuses across the U.S., as well as in Colombia and Mexico. Through this partnership, Avelo will have priority access to Alliance’s Preferred Referral Network of U.S. and international pilots who have completed the academy’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)-certified training.

Avelo Airlines Head of Flight Operations Captain Scott Hall said, “While we have not experienced the pilot recruiting and retention challenges confronting other airlines, leveraging Alliance Aviation will expand our reservoir of top-tier pilots to draw from in the future. Alliance will be an exceptional addition to our existing portfolio of pilot recruiting partners. It is a great time to be a pilot and Avelo is a great opportunity for pilots at any professional stage to take their career to new heights.”

Alliance’s training and fast-track placement program is purposefully designed for driven and devoted pilots who desire a lifelong aviation career packed with fulfillment and adventure. Alliance will serve as Avelo’s preferred agent to assist in identifying, selecting and referring trained pilots as First Officers to Avelo. In addition to training and referring pilots from the U.S., eligible candidates from outside the country can participate in the Alliance Aviation certificate FAA Foreign Conversion Program which licenses pilots without U.S. citizenship to fly for domestic airlines.

Alliance Aviation CEO Federico Flores Navarro said, “We are delighted to announce this partnership. Avelo is a great brand to bring under the Alliance Pilot Pipeline program. Through this partnership, Alliance will present new job opportunities to our graduates in the markets we serve and will help Avelo achieve their aggressive growth plans.”

Alliance offers a First Officer Preferred Referral Network pipeline through its Boeing 737, Airbus A320 and Embraer Foreign Conversion Program. Through its referral network, Alliance will recommend highly qualified foreign First Officer candidates to Avelo for possible visa or work sponsorship, employment and obtaining reciprocal or advanced licensing in the U.S.

In addition to competitive compensation, Avelo offers pilots high seniority, unique quality of life and travel benefits, as well as a fast pathway to the left seat. Avelo also plans to open a new state-of-the-art Flight Training Center in Orlando in early 2023.
