Who We Are
At Gulfstream Academy you can be in the right seat of a Beechcraft 1900D in less than 4 months. And then, as a First Officer, you will enhance your professional pilot experience with an additional 250 hours of Multi-engine, Turbo-prop, Beechcraft 1900 First Officer flight time with Gulfstream International Airlines.
Gulfstream International Airlines is a FAR PART 121 airline operating a fleet of 21 Beechcraft 1900s carrying more than 90 thousand passengers per month on better than 175 flights per day. For almost a decade, Gulfstream has been recognized as one of the leading providers of professional flight training. We offer the fastest possible transition to the Right Seat of a commercial airliner.
There has never been a more appropriate time to begin your commercial pilot career.
In the late 1980's, professional pilots needed a minimum of 5,000 hours of flight experience to even be considered by an airline. In the current market, regional airlines are actively seeking applicants with as little as 1,000 hours to 1,500 hours of flight experience. This downtrend in PIC hours of experience is expected to continue while, at the same time, industry experts project an average of 7,000 new commercial pilots will be hired per year over the next 7 to 10 years. The Future Airline Pilots Association (FAPA) predicts that, in the United States alone, scheduled airlines will need more than 50,000 new pilots within the next eight years, and the Airline Transport Association (ATA) projects that, by the year 2010, passenger air travel will double over the rates experienced in 1999.
