United Airlines and ExpressJet have partnered to offer our pilots a direct path to a Flight Officer position at United through the United Pilot Career Path Program (CPP).
The United CPP guarantees eligible ExpressJet pilots participation in United’s hiring process and, once accepted into the program, the expectation that they will become a United pilot. Through the program, United has committed to hiring a sizable portion of its new-hire pilots directly from ExpressJet.
Here's how the program works.
The United Pilot Career Path Program offers a direct path to United for qualified ExpressJet pilots. Eligible ExpressJet pilots are guaranteed participation in United’s hiring process and, once accepted into the program, the expectation that they will become a United pilot upon meeting the service and eligibility requirements. Through the program, United has committed to hiring a sizable portion of its new-hire pilots directly from ExpressJet.
To be accepted into the United Pilot Career Path Program, new hire pilots must complete four simple steps:
The process for current pilots is the same, though the timeline will vary.
All ExpressJet pilots who support, or are qualified to support, our United Express operation are eligible. Currently, all United Express operations are supported by our ERJ fleet. The CPP complements our already-strong hiring relationship with United.
Movement to United is in seniority order of those who apply and are eligible for the program, and who remain in the program in good standing with all requirements met.
Both ExpressJet and United expect pilots to continually develop in their careers, and we believe that knowing you’ll interview for a position encourages self-improvement while still giving our pilots the best career progression opportunities.
Once a participant is accepted into the CPP, no further structured interview is required. As long as United is hiring pilots, participants who maintain eligibility criteria will be offered conditional employment at United, subject to minimum and maximum limits set forth in the CPP.
Participation in the CPP is completely voluntary.
