Rotor Transition Program
As an experienced helicopter pilot, you’re in a position to rapidly begin a new career as a commercial airline pilot. Your previous experience means you have about half the requirements to complete compared to the average person. Your unique combination of experience, discipline, and commitment makes you an extremely valuable candidate to the airlines.
In AeroGuard’s Rotor to Fixed Wing Program in partnership with SkyWest, you’ll be able to complete all your training needed to transition into a career as a commercial airline pilot in about 4 months. Together, AeroGuard and SkyWest Airlines offer up to $27,500 in bonuses and tuition reimbursement for rotor transition pilots.
When entering into this program, you’ll receive a guaranteed interview with SkyWest and potentially a conditional job offer with SkyWest as a First Officer. SkyWest Airlines is the largest regional airline in the nation with 20 domiciles across the country from the West Coast to the East Coast. SkyWest offers incredible career opportunities to their pilots as well. First Officers can upgrade to Captain in as little as three months as soon as they have their FAR 121-436 requirements.

Option to receive $20,000 of tuition reimbursement upfront
SkyWest provides additional $7,500 bonus to military veterans upon completion of IOE
