Liberty University: School of Aeronautics Makes Deal With Airline

Lynchburg, VA - Students at Liberty University's school of aeronautics will get a little help after they graduate.

The school signed a deal with ExpressJet, which guarantees their pilot graduates jobs with the regional airline. They have to meet specific requirements, including finishing all flight hours and maintaining at least a 2.5 GPA.

LU's agreement with ExpressJet comes after a long-term relationship with the airline.

"We have been very blessed in our growth, blessed in the quality of students, the instructors and the equipment we have and all of this combine together has led us to where we are today with this particular arrangement with ExpressJet," said Dave Young, the dean of the School of Aeronautics.

Leaders at the school hope to make more deals with other big airlines in the near future.
