JetBlue is turning supermarket clerks and baggage handlers into pilots
Airline JetBlue has reportedly kicked off its new program to make pilots out of people with little to no flight experience. Six people, including a supermarket clerk, a baggage handler and equipment operator, have already spent three weeks studying meteorology, aerodynamics and aircraft systems, and will start seven months of flight training next week. It costs $125,000 to join.
