PSA Airlines is hiring pilots and realizes the unique skillset and flight leadership that you as a military pilot can bring.

Most military rotor pilots qualify for the FAA’s lowest minimum restricted ATP. Although many of you have the 750 hour total time, you fall short of the 250 hour fixed wing PIC requirement or 25 hour multi-engine requirement. PSA is partnering with VA approved SkyWarrior part 141 flight school and will contribute up to $23,000 towards your flight time requirements in order to achieve the R-ATP.

Sign on bonus of $16,000 paid immediately with an additional $20,000 bonus paid after one year.
