Latest News

Compass Airlines has teamed with ATP to offer the ATP/Compass Airlines Tuition Assistance Program, which is the first time in history that an airline has reached out to help defray the cost of flight training for new pilots entering the airline industry. Compass will interview pilots for the Program once they reach 500 hours of flight time. Monetary contributions will be made directly toward pilots flight training while they are instructing for ATP and building quality flight time toward the ATP Minimums required to be hired by the airline. The payments will continue after the plot has reached minimum requirements and begins to fly for Compass.

For details on the ATP/Compass Airlines Tuition Assistance Program, please call ATP at 904-595-7950.
