FlyHouse joins Destination 225° Pilot Pathways Program
In a move aimed at bolstering its roster of Part 135 first officer and second-in-command pilots, FlyHouse has joined the Southwest Airlines Destination 225° Pilot Pathways Program.

Los Angeles, California-headquartered private jet management and charter company FlyHouse has partnered with the Southwest Airlines Destination 225° Pilot Pathways Program, a springboard at Southwest for those seeking an aviation career. Budding pilots who aspire to fly in the right seat at Southwest must complete required coursework, flight training and all regulatory requirements to apply for their commercial pilot’s licences. Once they do, cadets become certified flight instructors and earn additional hours, qualifying them to fly for FlyHouse, now a Destination 225° flight partner.

FlyHouse CEO Jack Lambert Jr says: “This is an absolute win-win for FlyHouse and Southwest. We benefit by building a team of rising first officer and second-in-command pilots that will come to us through the Destination 225° programme. These cadets will fly for FlyHouse for a minimum of two years, or 12 months if operating as a captain, providing a much-needed level of pilot stability. For its part, Southwest can look forward to a stable flow of competitively qualified first officer candidates once they complete their tenure with FlyHouse, which, by definition, will include ongoing training and the accumulation of requisite flight hours.”

To join FlyHouse, programme cadets must have graduated from an accredited university with a Part 141 pilot programme or have completed their training through a Destination 225°-approved flight training academy and hold an FAA-issued commercial pilot’s licence with multi-engine land, instrument airplane ratings. In addition, they must hold (or be eligible to hold) an FAA first-class medical certificate, a valid passport making them eligible for entrance into all countries where FlyHouse operates and an FCC Restricted Radiotelephone Operator Permit.
