PSA Airlines and SkyWarrior Inc. formally signed an industry-leading Rotor Transition Program agreement helping military rotor pilots transition to commercial aviation. PSA is partnering with Pensacola-based SkyWarrior and will contribute up to $23,000 toward flight-time requirements to help military rotor pilots achieve Restricted-Airline Transport Pilot (R-ATP) certification. Most military rotor pilots qualify for the Federal Aviation Administration’s lowest-minimum R-ATP. Although many of these pilots have the 750-hour total time, they fall short of the 250-hour fixed-wing Pilot in Command (PIC) requirement or 25-hour multi-engine requirement.

PSA’s Rotor Transition Program is different from other programs and offers more to pilots in the flexibility and affordability of the program. The program offers pilots the choice on how to fund getting flight hours and no GI bill use is required. Pilots can also build hours on their time, as long as it is completed in three months. Partnering with SkyWarrior also provides pilots the most competitive price-per-flight-hour in an affordable location, Pensacola, FL.

PSA’s new Rotor Transition Program initiative is just one way PSA Airlines offers the most comprehensive benefits to its pilots. PSA Airlines is the fastest-growing regional airline in the country, and with a true pilot flow through agreement to American, a career as a mainline pilot for the largest airline in the world can start with this program.
