Re: Porter Mentorship Program

It's quite an elaborate process for the school to qualify for the mentorship program. The schools in the program have all been audited by Porter to ensure they meet our quality standards.

Re: Being gay in the flight deck...

888000, There are companies out there that are very traditional, and some that are more progressive. Go to flight school, do what you love, and if you're good at what you do, you can come work for Porter Airlines! http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd235/johngronlund/Porter%20Pride_zps9b06gjqh.jpg
