JU aviation program’s “gateway” career opportunities spotlighted by JetBlue

JetBlue Airways spotlights its relationship with Jacksonville University’s Davis Aviation Center through its University Gateway Program in the airline’s newly published newsletter.

Within eight years of entering college – after completing a paid internship, obtaining a degree, working as a flight instructor, and getting hands-on flying experience with regional airline Cape Air – JU students participating in the Gateway program are fully qualified to interview for a training slot as a JetBlue first officer.

Also, JetBlue recently formalized an agreement with ExpressJet Airlines to allow students in the Gateway program to fly with ExpressJet after a year of service at Cape Air.

Here is the JetBlue’s newsletter:
