Florida Tech’s College of Aeronautics signed a new pathway agreement with Mountain Air Cargo (MAC) on April 24.
The agreement provides Aeronautics flight students with a defined path to a pilot position with MAC. Sophomores with at least a 2.5 GPA can interview with MAC and receive a conditional job offer.
MAC is one of two FedEx feeder airlines that are part of the “Purple Runway” program with the shipping company. Pilots from MAC can flow to a pilot position with FedEx after 36 months at MAC. Based in Denver, North Carolina, Mountain Air Cargo operates a fleet of Cessna Caravan and ATR-42 and -72 aircraft.
