Trans States Airlines’ Express Hire Program provides a streamlined hiring process for pilots currently employed by 121 airlines.  Current and qualified 121 pilots are not required to interview with Trans States Airlines and will be offered an immediate class date, pending application approval.  To qualify, pilots must have completed training and be online at a 121 airline.

Pilots who take advantage of the Express Hire program are also eligible to take advantage of Trans States’ Seniority Reservation Program, which 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.  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.

Trans States pilots can now expect to earn up to $75,000 in total compensation during their first year alone, thanks to a new bonus package rolled out this spring.  Trans States also offers fast upgrades, great domiciles, and a culture like none other.  In fact, one new hire recently described the culture at Trans States as “more of a family mentality than an airline mentality,” while another said that Trans States “just feels like home.”

Compensation.  Culture.  Camaraderie.  You’ll find it all at Trans States Airlines.

Trans States Airlines
When Trans States Airlines began as Resort Air in 1982, it operated just a handful of Metro II aircraft and carried just under 7,000 passengers during its first year of operation—tourists, primarily, between its headquarters in St. Louis and a popular lake two hours south of the city (hence the call sign "Waterski," which Trans States still uses to this day).  However, things have changed a great deal since 1982.  Since that time, Resort Air has evolved from a small boutique carrier into Trans States Airlines, a carrier that served nearly 3 million passengers in 2015.  The Metro IIs have been replaced by an all-jet fleet of Embraer 145s, and Trans States now flies on behalf of United Airlines (as United Express) and American Airlines (as American Eagle), providing service to over 70 cities in North America with approximately 237 daily flights.  At Trans States, our mission is simple:  To remain flexible and responsive to the needs and challenges of our major partners and the aviation industry , while striving to do our best for our customers.  We are committed to providing safe, reliable and on-time air transportation and to delivering the highest standards in professionalism and customer service.  We’d love the opportunity to demonstrate this commitment to you in person.  Our over 900 employees look forward to welcoming you onboard!
