ATP Flight School is has enhanced its partnership with SkyWest Airlines. In an update to their current partnership with ATP, SkyWest Airlines has increased tuition reimbursement to $17,500 for pilots training with ATP Flight School.
ATP provides students with airline-oriented flight training; taking students with zero experience and paving a way to a successful commercial airline career with the SkyWest Airlines Pilot Pathway Program. After graduates complete the Airline Career Pilot Program in nine months, they are guaranteed a flight instructor job in order to gain the required flight hours needed to fly commercially.
As an ATP flight instructor, pilots are then eligible to apply for the SkyWest Airlines Pilot Pathway Program and, once accepted, begin incrementally receiving the $17,500 in tuition reimbursement. Flight instructors in the SkyWest Pilot Pathway Program also receive career mentorship, enhanced company seniority and a guaranteed first officer interview, and more. This approach to airline pilot recruitment takes an early investment in a pilot's career. It actively promotes the profession and makes it more attainable by helping ease the financial barrier aspiring pilots can face.
