Latest News

Trans States Airlines has teamed with ATP to offer the ATP/Trans States Tuition Reimbursement Program which is the first time in the history that an airline has reached out to help defray the cost of flight training for new pilots entering the airline industry. Trans States will take pilots into the Tuition Reimbursement Program once they reach 500 hours of flight time, and contribute directly toward their flight training while they are still instructing for ATP and building quality flight time toward the ATP Minimums required to be hired by any airline. The payments then continue after the plot has reached minimum requirements and begins to fly for Trans States.

For details on the ATP/Trans States Tuition Reimbursement Program, please call ATP at 904-595-7950.
