Trans States Airlines

Trans States Airlines is pleased to announce that it has partnered with ATP Flight School to offer financial aid to aspiring commercial pilots as part of ATP’s Tuition Reimbursement Program. This program assists with flight school loan repayment or refunds a portion of flight training costs for eligible participants. In exchange, ATP pilots agree to fly for Trans States after gaining the required flight experience.

“We’re delighted to participate in this innovative new program that offsets the costs associated with earning a commercial pilot license,” said Fred Oxley Chief Operating Officer at Trans States Airlines. “While many regional airlines, including Trans States, offer signing bonuses to incentivize pilots, this program is the first of its kind to subsidize training costs.”

“ATP students have access to numerous loan options for full financing of airline career pilot program flight training. This agreement will allow for a portion of students’ training costs to be paid for by Trans States Airlines” said Justin Dennis, Vice President, ATP.
