JOB SUMMARY: There are three Flight Operations Internship positions available at the World Headquarters for Delta Air Lines in Atlanta, Georgia. This is a paid internship, including additional privileges such as standby travel anywhere in the Delta system while off duty. Each intern will be assigned individual duties; however, all three interns will be cross-trained and expected to work as a team to complete all tasks. Due to the large volume of hands-on projects, Delta’s Flight Operations interns will learn about the industry and gain valuable life experience in addition to the occasional job shadow opportunity. Most duties are Flight Operations (pilot) based and are valuable to anyone with a long term goal of becoming an airline pilot.
RESPONSIBILITIES AND TASKS: An intern at Delta Air Lines will assist management with the coordination of travel arrangements, calendar organization, as well as coordinating with pilots about speaking engagements. An intern will be required to update jumpseat approval letters and ensure the jumpseat letters are distributed accordingly. An intern will also be required to work directly with the technical pilots and the NextGen Working Group by assisting with projects which include recreating an event in the simulator to assess procedures.
JOB QUALIFICATIONS: Intern candidates must be enrolled in an undergraduate degree program with an aviation discipline, have a competitive GPA, and be in good academic standing with the University. An intern must possess excellent communication skills, be able to process complicated issues quickly, and maintain confidentiality when dealing with sensitive information. Due to the technical nature of some projects, interns must demonstrate a competency in technical skills to include but not limited to simulator tours, the collection and analysis of flight planning data, reading and summarizing new regulations, and the ability to quickly relate to the advanced jet environment. It is preferred that a candidate is actively engaged in student or community groups and has at least a private pilot certificate. Due to the extensive computer and desk work, a strong demonstrated working knowledge of Microsoft Outlook, Access, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint is required.
