Western and American Eagle Airlines announced the deal Friday.</p><p>The airline says it will begin working with some students in Western’s College of Aviation when they are sophomores. They’ll become instructors at the school on graduation while being paid by American Eagle. That will give them time to add flight hours needed for an airline pilot’s license.</p> Fri, 05 Apr 2013 17:12:01 +0000 Andrew Robins 3829 at http://wmuk.org WMU gets new airline pilots as instructors
