Wow, those are some serious bonuses.

Chris

It says “can”. I don’t see any details on how Piedmont pilots would earn these bonuses. Does anyone know?

Ben,

It also says “If you have questions for a recruiter, please email FlyPiedmont@aa.com”.

I cannot say that this is accurate, but here is the rumor of how the bonuses are paid out:

Assuming that rumor is true, that’s a little misleading to say $180k when you can only receive either the 30k captain bonus or 30k upgrade bonus. :rofl:
Nonetheless, if true, that’s still some really good incentives for pilots to come to Piedmont and Envoy.

It’s 30k for captains/upgrade to captain + 50k biannual + 70k if you stay long enough to flow to AA. While yes, it’s not 180k and there will be some strings attached, it’s not just 30k either.

I dig some more digging on the Piedmont site. Pulled this pic.

It looks like Envoy is posting the same program as Piedmont.

With increased pay and flow to American, Envoy is the best place to start your pilot career | Envoy Air
