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 you​r schedule permits.  ​​

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