Mesa Airlines and ATP Flight School have taken the first step to financially promote the pilot career with ATP's new Tuition Reimbursement Program. In this exclusive agreement, Mesa Airlines will offer ATP's current instructor group of 200 its tuition assistance program, Mesa TAP. In exchange, these pilots will commit to flying for Mesa Airlines upon reaching eligibility. Mesa also plans to invest in future student pilots through this program.

Mesa is the first airline to invest in pilots as they build flight experience through ATP's Tuition Reimbursement Program. ATP students have access to numerous loan options for full financing of airline career program flight training. This agreement will allow for a substantial portion of that payment to be subsidized by the pilot's future employer, Mesa Airlines.
