If you're an aviation student, Delta offers an awesome flight operations internship. I'm currently participating in it, as an employee in Pilot Standards at the Atlanta World Headquarters. We get unlimited jumpseat privileges, preferred hiring at ACA/Comair, and the chance to meet a lot of great people. In the 2 weeks that I have been in my internships, I have done the following travel:
|Route||Aircraft||Cabin||Purpose of Trip|
|SAN-ATL||767-300||Coach||Flight to ATL to start work|
|ATL-EGE (Vail, CO)-ATL||757||Flight Deck jumpseat||Special airport observation|
|LAX-HNL-OGG (Maui, HI)-LAX||767-400||Jumpseat||Trans-oceanic operation and special airport observation|
|LAX-ATL||767-400||First Class||Return to work after Hawaiian trip|
|ATL-CVG||767-300||First Class||Trip to attend a CRJ class at Comair|
|SAN-CVG||767-300||BusinessElite/Jumpseat||Return to work (Tommorrow)|
|CVG-ATL||MD-88||First Class/Jumpseat||Return to work (Tommorrow)|
The special airport observations relate to my work, which is to involve developing training for pilots to become qualified to fly into the special airports. Vail and Maui both require special qualification due to mountainous terrain.
There are currently 16 flight ops interns at Delta, working in various departments. If you're a pilot, and you are looking for an internship, this one is outstanding.
