Airline Sponsored Tuition Reimbursement

The Fastest Path to Frontier Airlines.

Trans States Airlines has selected ATP as a preferred training provider to build their pilot pipelines with the best training in the fastest time frame possible, offering Airline Career Pilot Program students airline sponsored tuition reimbursement. Here’s how you can take advantage of this program:

Step 1
Airline Career Pilot Program

Graduate from the Airline Career Pilot Program with CFIs.

Step 2
Build Experience as a Flight Instructor

Become a flight instructor with ATP — guaranteed instructor job for Airline Career Pilot Program graduates, earning up to $42,000 annually with airline tuition reimbursement.

Step 3
Airline Interview & Airline Tuition Reimbursement

Between 300-500 hours total time, interview with Trans States Airlines. If you accept the Trans States's offer, they make a financial contribution toward your loan payment and you make a commitment to fly for that airline. Payments are $5 per flight hour, based on how much flight time you acquire each month. If you did not finance your flight training, payments are made directly to you.

Step 4
Airline Pilot Job Placement

About two years after starting flight training, and with approximately $5,000 in airline tuition reimbursement received, you start your new hire class with Trans States Airlines. $500 monthly payments continue to supplement first-year airline pay for at least 12 months.

Step 5
Flow-Through to Frontier Airlines

Frontier Airlines

As a Trans States pilot, you can take advantage of a flow-through agreement between Frontier Airlines and Frontier, putting you on a direct path to an Airbus flight deck, with no additional interview required.
