Waypoints 1: Energy, Intelligence & Integrity



Do you want to be a flight instructor at our school? Or maybe join the maintenance team? Or our dispatch? That’s great! The first test is if you meet our hiring principles. Our crew and colleagues are very important. These are the people that we rely on for safety, to train a new generation of pilots, and to make sure we all reach our goals. That’s because of our mission; changing lives through aviation. You have to fit our mission, understand it and have Energy, Intelligence & Integrity. Let’s take a look at these three principles, and why they are important to us.



We celebrate and foster these traits in our students, staff and flight instructors. As soon as we get a application these are the first three things we check if the applicant has. It is important to have a healthy combination of all three if you want to work here at Wayman Aviation Academy. Not just to be successful as an flight instructor, but we believe you need to have these three principles to be successful at life too.
