Students who graduate from the Seneca Airline Pilot Flight Operations program with the required academic credentials will be offered an interview with Air Georgian. Candidates who meet Air Georgian’s First Officer pilot criteria, and who successfully complete the interview and all standardized testing and evaluations, may be chosen to become First Officers on the Air Canada Express B1900D fleet.

“Aviation is a dynamic, growing industry and the demand for pilots is higher than it’s ever been,” said Dan Bockner, Vice President, Operations and Security with Air Georgian. “There are only a handful of educators that offer these programs and we are aware of Seneca’s excellence in producing the quality graduates that we need.”

Recognized as a one of Canada’s Top Small to Medium Employers, Air Georgian is experiencing rapid growth as an Air Canada Express partner. The company has been one of Air Canada’s most important sources for pilots for the past two decades and will continue to play a pivotal role in the future.

“This strategic collaboration with Air Georgian provides a direct career pathway for our students,” said Lynne McMullen, Director Business Development for Seneca’s School of Aviation. “It will also help the college gain valuable curriculum ideas that will allow us to continue producing graduates with real-world job experience aligned with industry requirements.”
