Legends Airways is a proud supporter of our nation's Armed Forces.
Many of our staff members are prior service, including our School Director. We know firsthand the sacrifices you have made, and it is our goal to give back to you. That is why we have partnered with the Department of Defense as an Industry Partner for SkillBridge, to bring you the Patriot to Pilot Program.
The Patriot to Pilot program, provided by Legends Airways, is open to eligible DOD SkillBridge participants that seek to take flight in their new civilian career. The Patriot to Pilot program consists of two tracks: the free Wingman Track and the optional Pilot-Training Track. The Wingman Track, led by Aviation and Aerospace industry leaders within Legends Airways, is designed to prepare participants to become industry professionals. Participants will receive mentorship and career preparation from our Chief Pilot, Flight School Director, Vice-President of Operations, and Director of Operations.
In addition to the Wingman Track, participants will have the opportunity to pursue professional flight training within our Academy through the Pilot-Training Track. Participants in this optional track will take flight, pursuing their FAA pilot certificates and ratings in our academy aircraft and training devices, alongside our fully FAA qualified instructors. Full completion of all certificates is dependent on the participant's commitment, study habits, and prior knowledge. Participants do not need to have prior flight or aviation experience to enroll.
SkillBridge is designed for active duty, reservists, and guardsmen, to spend up to 180 days at a Department of Defense approved industry partner to receive on-the-job training and an internship in the civilian sector. Service Members continue to remain on active duty orders, with full pay and benefits, during the length of the SkillBridge Internship.
