This unique program allows new hire pilots to come to training for two days, and then leave for up to 90 days to complete other commitments. When pilots return to training, they already have up to 90 days of seniority and may NEVER sit reserve as a First Officer.
Seniority determines everything for pilots, including schedule, base assignment, and upgrade time. Pilots are more likely to get their preferred base assignment right out of training with three months of seniority backing their bid. Plus, pilots in the seniority reservation program reach year two pay in 9 months instead of 12 months.
Something else to consider is upgrade time. Taking on 52 new aircraft in 2015-16 means that Trans States can offer one of the fastest Captain upgrades in the industry (12-18 months). Fast Captain upgrades mean that Trans States pilots start earning PIC time fast. And don’t expect to spend much time on reserve—Trans States pilots are spending two months or less on reserve before getting a line.
What’s more, pay at Trans States is among the best in the industry, and currently includes a $7,500 signing bonus.
