Aviation Education Pathways

   Cranberry Aviation assists in scoping the search for young adults considering aviation as a future profession. While the onset of Covid-19 suspended growth in commercial and general aviation pilot shortage estimates, post-pandemic growth in the aviation industry will see the return of pilot shortages by 2023[1].  Aviation Education Pathway services are designed for parents with children starting their junior year in high school up to young adults in their 20s and 30s seeking to realign their career fields into aviation.

Initial Aviation Education Pathway Consulting sessions include:

  • Meet and Greet with Prospective Pilot and Parent(s) (if applicable).
  • Goal Assessment for the Aspiring Pilot(s).
  • Overview of Pilot Medical Requirements.
  • Explanation of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Regulated Aviation Training Programs.
  • Advantage/Disadvantage Comparisons of FAA-regulated Aviation Training Programs.

   The initial session ends with a question and answer session designed to aid the prospective pilot in searching for an aviation training program that best meets their assessed goals. Cranberry Aviation offers follow-on sessions with clients that desire direct assistance in choosing a flight school.  This assistance includes developing prioritized search criteria and questions that can be used to compare and contrast multiple aviation training program sin order to identify the best training platform for the aspiring pilot.
