Aviation Pipeline programs:

Republic offers one of the most comprehensive Cadet opportunities for aspiring airline pilots, offering a conditional offer of employment as early as students complete their instrument or commercial rating through its RJet cadet program. Pilots are not committed or contractually obligated to Republic in this program while having the perks of a priority class date selection, mentorship opportunities, expenses-paid onsite visits to our IND headquarters and more. 

Cadets qualify to apply for the RJet Ambassador program, a program for selected students to serve as brand ambassadors on their respective campuses through outreach and programs. Ambassadors are part-time employees of Republic and earn a $200 stipend each month along with flight benefits and company seniority (not pilot seniority). Only RJet Cadets are given the opportunity to apply for the Ambassador position.

In May 2018, Republic opened the Leadership In Flight Training (LIFT) Academy, a commercial aviation pilot training school in Indianapolis. Graduates have a direct pathway to a job as a First Officer at Republic. Learn more at www.flywithlift.com.
