Whether you are a military or civilian helicopter pilot, your training counts at CommutAir. Since many rotor pilots do not meet the FAA ATP or R-ATP minimums, CommutAir will financially assist you with up to $22,100 in making the transition from flying helicopters to soaring in commercial jets with ease. As an airline pilot with CommutAir, you will be on the fast track to a United Airlines flight deck through our United Career Path Program.

The CommutAir Rotor Transition Program, along with the grants available to you, is designed to fund your fixed wing career. With the CommutAir difference, you can choose YOUR local flight school or flying club with 6 months to complete your ATP or R-ATP requirements. This will allow you to build your future while completing your military obligations or current civilian position!
