ExpressJet Airlines is excited to announce a multi-phase partnership with Boldmethod, a digital aviation media company, to give readers an inside look at regional airline operations. Boldmethod is a landmark company that is transforming how aviation professionals and enthusiasts understand the aviation industry. The alliance utilizes Boldmethod’s industry-leading online teaching methods to educate, engage and empower future aviators in an innovative way.
The collaboration will focus on regional airline operations, an inside look at aviation professions and tips on beginning your aviation career. We’re looking forward to launching the first three segments in the series over the coming months:
First Flight of the Day: The first feature encompasses all the tasks that are associated with preparing for the first flight of the day, including maintenance preparation, pilot preflight and safety checks, flight attendant cabin prep, ramp operations and, finally, take off.
Pilot Interview: ExpressJet and Boldmethod take audiences through a typical pilot interview experience. The feature integrates the standard aviation interview experience with a culture that is unique to ExpressJet.
ATP CTP Course: Aviation enthusiasts will find the answers to questions regarding the ATP CTP course instruction, get an in-depth look at ExpressJet’s training program – the only part 121 carrier to offer the training in-house – and tag along as a pilot trainee completes the flight simulator portion of the course.
“We take pride in leading the industry in outreach to both future and current aviation professionals,” said Brad Sheehan, senior vice president of Operations at ExpressJet. “The partnership with Boldmethod builds upon the existing priorities of ExpressJet: educating, engaging and empowering the future of aviation to prepare them for a successful, long-term career. We’re confident that partnering with Boldmethod will enhance our reach to educate and inspire the next generation.”
“Aviation is an amazing career field, but getting an in-depth look into an airline career can be nearly impossible,” said Aleks Udris, co-founder of Boldmethod. “Together with ExpressJet, we’re producing stories that give future aviators an inside view of the airline world. We’re showing people what it takes to push a flight out on time – from the flight deck to the operations tower. We’re walking through an interview process, to help people prepare for any aviation interview, and we’re looking in-depth at training, starting with the ATP Certification Training Program (ATP CTP).”
“We know an inside view of the industry will show how amazing aviation is, inspiring more students to start aviation careers,” said Colin Cutler, co-founder of Boldmethod. “We want pilots to understand what large aircraft training includes, helping them prepare for the next step in their careers.”
Our partnership will allow for aspiring airline pilots, aviation students and professional enthusiasts to learn more about ExpressJet and the airline industry through Boldmethod’s sharable, digital flight training content. The features created as a result of the partnership will be available to ExpressJet and Boldmethod audiences online.
