We recently achieved two significant pilot training milestones for the April launch of our new Embraer E175 fleet.
Captain Pat Greene became ExpressJet’s first FAA-certified E175 Aircrew Program Designee (APD). With this designation, Pat may now certify other ExpressJet pilots on the E175 fleet. We’ll have a total of seven E175 APDs to support training efficiency and flexibility through our fleet growth.
In addition, Captain Jorge Rechani became ExpressJet’s first line pilot to earn an E175 type rating. Jorge is among more than 250 ExpressJet line pilots who will be certified to fly the E175.
Thanks, Captain Pat and Captain Jorge for representing us so well in these milestones! We’ll see you flying the E175s soon!
