MetroAir Announces A New Mentorship Program!

Kansas City MO- MetroAir announces the roll-out a new program to enhance the initial experience of new pilots at the airline.
With the recent aquisition of Cirrus and the huge influx of new pilots at MetroAir, the staff and management felt it needed something to help it’s new pilots to feel more welcome and to get them started on the right track to success.

The airline’s CEO, Matt Calsada said, “It is sometimes an overwhelming task for our new pilots to wade through all of the information and processes that make this airline operate smoothly on a daily basis.” He continued, “MetroAir is also working with a few senior pilots to organize a Mentorship Program. The program will be geared towards new pilots with the goal of getting new pilots more involved and get them pointed in the right direction. Each new pilot will be assigned a mentor to work with on a one-on-one basis.” More detailed information on the Mentorship Program can be found on the MetroAir Wiki Page.

Since all of our new pilots are assigned to the Kansas City Hub, Derrick Medlin will coordinate all of the Mentor assignments. Upon being hired, their profile will be evaluated and Mentors will be assigned based on time zones and Mentor Team workload. Pilots will be notified by email, along with their new Mentor.
