Rotor to Wings

Are you a rotor pilot who's short the fixed wing hours required for ATP or R-ATP minimums? We provide funding that can get you ready for the Trans States flight deck in as little as six weeks. Best of all, there's no wait to start training. Unlike other rotor transition programs with a training backlog, you can start the Trans States program as soon as your schedule permits.

Train with the school of your choice, or use one of our pre-approved institutions.
