They've just had their one year anniversary. This snippet is from an internal article on the YX website;

"More than 200 students are currently enrolled in LIFT Academy’s flight training program, and its first students who began training one year ago in September have transitioned to certificated flight instructors as they earn flight hours required by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to become commercial airline pilots. The instructor position is qualified through the Department of Labor as a registered ATP apprenticeship. Students who successfully complete flight training at LIFT are guaranteed a job as a Republic Pilot."

They are also starting an A&P program as well.

I’m a CFI at Lift. There have been some growing pains in the early months but things have been running well recently. We have had around a dozen move on to Republic, although they all started with some certificates in hand rather than the full zero to hero.
