Trans States Airlines becomes latest to join ATP’s Tuition Reimbursement Programme

Trans States Airlines has joined Mesa Airlines, Compass Airlines and GoJet Airlines in partnering with ATP Flight School to offer financial aid to aspiring commercial pilots as part of ATP's Tuition Reimbursement Programme.Trans States will assist with flight school loan repayment or refund a portion of flight training costs in exchange for eligible ATP participants flying for the carrier after gaining the required experience.“We're delighted to participate in this innovative new programme that offsets the costs associated with earning a commercial pilot license,” commented COO of Trans States Airlines, Fred Oxley. “While many regional airlines, including Trans States, offer signing bonuses to incentivise pilots, this programme is the first of its kind to subsidise training costs.”In addition to ATP tuition reimbursement, Trans States Airlines does offer a $10,000 First Officer signing bonus and covers the cost of the ATP-CTP course for qualified applicants. The airline is also authorised to run a Captain Qualified First Officer (CQFO) programme, giving experienced new hire pilots immediate access to the left seat.Justin Dennis, VP of ATP, added, “ATP students have access to numerous loan options for full financing of airline career pilot programme flight training. This agreement will allow for a portion of students' training costs to be paid for by Trans States Airlines.”
