ATP’s recruiting partner Compass Airlines has joined ATP’s Tuition Reimbursement Program as a sponsoring airline. The Tuition Reimbursement Program provides up to $11,000 be paid toward an ATP graduate’s and flight instructor’s flight training costs by Compass Airlines. The ATP graduate then agrees to fly for Compass when the pilot reaches 1500 hours of flight experience.
“We recognize that the path to becoming a commercial airline pilot can be expensive,” said Jacob Rosholt, Chief Operating Officer at Compass Airlines. “The ATP Tuition Reimbursement Program is a terrific opportunity to ease the financial burden faced by aspiring pilots, while simultaneously giving Compass immediate access to some of the nation’s top aviation talent.”
“Tuition reimbursement helps address the long-term need to attract new pilots into the airline career. Compass is helping innovate a real, sustainable solution to the pilot shortage by participating in this program,” said Justin Dennis, Vice President, ATP.
ATP graduates are meeting and exceeding their career objectives and positioning themselves for multi-million dollar careers flying for the Major Airlines and programs at ATP such as the Tuition Reimbursement Program are helping them succeed. These pilots will arrive for new-hire training at these airlines ahead of their competition, and enjoy all the benefits of greater seniority, because they chose to train with the school that has a thirty year record of setting pilots on the path to success: ATP.
