SkyWest RTP Program

Rotor Transition Program, now offering $20,000 in tuition reimbursement for fixed wing transition training!

There has never been a better time for an experienced military helicopter pilot to transition to commercial aviation. Together, CSA and SkyWest Airlines offer up to $27,500 in bonuses and tuition reimbursement for military rotor transition pilots as they train, completing their R-ATP requirements in approximately 4 months.

Military rotor pilots who are hired by SkyWest through our rotor transition program will have the opportunity to quickly advance from first officer to captain. Pilots can upgrade to Captain in as little as three months, as soon as they have FAR 121-436 requirements. Learn more about what SkyWest can offer RTP pilots.
