“With major airlines ramping back up to pre-pandemic hiring levels, pilots are extremely in-demand. It’s the perfect time to launch your career in aviation,” said Chris Erlanson, president of Nashville Flight Training. “In addition, financing options are available, making it easy to get started and train at your own pace.”

Nashville Flight Training recently announced it has joined with International Aviation Services (IAS) to offer local student pilots a direct, FAA-approved track to the highest certification in the industry: Airline Transport Pilot (ATP). The partnership provides a start-to-finish route for student pilots to gain the experience needed to fly with major airlines worldwide.

“Flying an airplane is an experience unlike any other, and it’s a career with amazing opportunities to travel to places near and far. If you have always dreamed of becoming a pilot, or you’re thinking about a career change, this is a great time to get started. The skies are calling!” Erlanson said.
