My Path to FedEx
Lindsay Ervin, First Officer
During my senior year of high school, I was struggling to figure out what I wanted to do when I grew up. I had the opportunity to go on a flight with my neighbor, who was a retired airline pilot. John had known I was not interested in the medical field like the rest of my family.
It is hard to describe, but I loved flying instantly. I knew it was a perfect fit for me.
I spent over four and a half years at Mountain Air Cargo. During my time I have not only improved my piloting skills but have met and worked with a ton of great people.
The first time I heard of the Purple Runway Pathway Program, I thought it was a great opportunity. It has always been my dream to work for FedEx and I was amazed there was a pathway to achieve my goal.
I am extremely excited to be one of the first to complete the program. It is an amazing opportunity. The welcoming response throughout FedEx has been exciting to see firsthand.
After operating for FedEx through Mountain Air Cargo, I have seen firsthand what a great company FedEx is.
My advice for future Purple Runway pilots is to stick with it. If FedEx is your dream, keep up the hard work, the payoff is well worth the effort.
