Re: Introducing Destination 225°

Hi Kelby,

 

I am an alumnus to one of the Destination 225 University programs and prior military aviator (Navigator not Pilot). I already have some Part 135 experience, Class I Medical, Over 3.5 GPA in Masters Program at parter univeristy, and meet all other requirments (except for being alumni instead of a current student.)

 

Is there a way I can still be a member of this program? It seems like an amazing opportunity.

 

Thank you,

 

Paul

Hi Kelby,

 

I am very interested in joining the University program, but have already graduated a partner school. Can I still apply?

 

Thanks!

Hi @ChristianW20 & @haydhall

 

The answer to your question can vary depending on the level of flight experience you have and the pathway you are looking at under Destination 225°. For example someone with a CFI or ATP would likely be better off continuing down their current path and building more experience, ultimately applying through our traditional pathway.

Hi @Benzene,

 

Thanks for reaching out. You are welcome to bring anyone along that you would like! That being said, you are responsible for all of your housing and living expenses throughout the duration of the program.

Hello,

Im a current Fixed Wing PPL and have been invited to complete the ADAPT assessement in PHX in the coming weeks. Before making this life changing desicion i reallly need to wait for my significant other to finish her degree and start working (expecting completion in Dec. 2019) as i am the current source of income in my family. What is the likelihood this program continues in the following year (2020)? And what is the likelihood that Im selected again if i apply?

The thought of missing out on this once in a lifetime opportunity makes me weak in the stomach and knees. Your feedback is much appreciated.

 

Regards,

D. Jarvis

Hi @Cptjarvis,

 

Thanks for reaching out. The Destination 225° program will help Southwest reduce our dependency on the open market by allowing us to train future pilots and is something we plan on continuing into the future. Over the next year alone we are planning for several new classes. Please feel free to reapply at the time you are interested in starting with the program. Best of luck to your significant other in the completion of her degree!

First i want to apologize if this has been asked before, im not too great with forums.

 

Im very interested in this program but want to know what my first steps are. I'm about 4 months out from completing my 5 year contract with the military. I have no flight experience but some knowledge coming from an airwing background.  I also have minimal college credits/hours. I've already applied to the program, but nothing else. Are there any other actions i need to take before hearing back? Will the application viewer place me in the correct program accordingly? How long before i might hear back about my application? 

 

Thank you so much for the help!
