The Delta Airlines Pilot Career Path Program was announced Wednesday and will identify, select, and develop the next generation of pilots for Delta. The Airline says it expects to hire more than 8,000 pilots in the next decade.  Delta is initially partnering with eight universities with aviation programs, including Minnesota State Mankato, to interview prospective pilots. Those qualified will receive a detailed plan and an accelerated timeline to become a Delta Pilot.

Delta plans to partner with more universities in the future.
