LIFT STUDENTS EXPLORE CAPE AIR PARTNERSHIP

LIFT Academy and Cape Air recently announced their strategic workforce development relationship - offering LIFT students valuable experience as pilot in command (PIC) and an additional option for time building before they flow to Republic Airways as First Officer.
