Default Cadet Programs

Hey All,

Iím in my first quarter of an AAS Commercial Aviation program at a Pt. 141 school. I know I have lots of time to learn about these programs and figure a lot out. But if anyone has experience in a cadet program/wingman program etc, Iíd love to hear about your experience, and which ones are great/not great.

For whatever itís worth, Iím 28 and am in MN.

Thanks!

Careful with cadet programs, they are recruiting tools and are designed to get noobs "on the hook" before they can interview at other airlines. It would be very short-term thinking to let a cadet program affect your choice of regional and possibly your long-term career progression. Whatever benefit you can get from a cadet program I can make at least that much money by picking up a 1-2 day weekend trip from OT at the major.

Prioritize your choices of regional based on location, upgrade, pay, training reputation, company reputation, etc. If your top choice(s) has a cadet program then feel free to take advantage of it, some of them do have some nice perks.

I would highly recommend looking into GoJet's Wingman program. There is no committment, no strings attached, and its a great deal if you get in. Flight benefits on United is one of benefits which I have used lots.
