As a current or former military pilot, are you:

  • Interested in a lucrative airline career but don’t know where to start?
  • Uncertain if it’s better to join the airline now or wait until an active duty retirement?
  • Concerned about the initial pay cut and uncertainty with leaving the full-time military?
     

A military to airlines transition may be a great option if you desire:

  • Some of the highest paying flying careers in the world.
  • Nearly two weeks off a month — without ever taking work home.
  • Flexibility to live wherever you want despite working somewhere else.
  • Ability for you and your family to travel the world — for (almost) free — for life.
  • Opportunity to be part-time in a Guard or Reserve squadron.
