LIFT Academy prepares students with unparalleled training, technology and support to ensure that have what they need to be successful in the program. Our students, upon completion of the program and after completing valuable time building and pilot in command time, are on a defined pathway to a career as a pilot at Republic Airways. With the top-notch resources provided, and support from advisors in one-on-one and group sessions, our student pilots have the ability to earn their flight licenses and ratings in as little as 12 months. Once ratings have been earned and students have “graduated” from the LIFT program, LIFT students are eligible to become certificated flight instructors or Cape Air pilots to begin earning money while working on building their flight hours.
While attending LIFT, students have access to state-of-the-art Diamond DA-40NG single-engine as well as DA-42 twin engine aircraft. LIFT currently has 47 Diamond aircraft, with plans to expand the fleet in the future. With a focus of safety, great technology and an airline ready program, LIFT students are prepared for their future careers flying at Republic Airways.
