A bridge agreement program between the MTSU aerospace department and College Park, Ga.-based ExpressJet recently paid dividends when six university flight instructors were hired after all completed the same-day interview process.

All six — Patrick Brightman of Cordova, Tenn., Leland Waite of Meridan, Idaho, Alex Neal of Sweetwater, Tenn., Jared Timok of Glen Allen, Va., Justin Forbess of Munford, Tenn., and Ethan Rawdon of Hohenwald, Tenn. — will join ExpressJet at various times in the coming months.

"For all six to get hired is a real testimony to how hard they worked and how much time they put into their efforts with their students," said Paul Mosey, MTSU's chief flight instructor at the Flight Operations Center at Murfreesboro Airport.

"All of us are very near to our flight hours to move on to the airlines," Waite said. "ExpressJet has chosen MTSU as one of their programs to source pilots. ... As MTSU graduates, they know that we deliver professional pilots who are prepared and ready to move on and go into the airlines."
