CommutAir, a United Express carrier, announces a Rotor Transition Program (RTP)

CommutAir, a United Express® carrier, announces its Rotor Transition Program (RTP) to assist military and civilian helicopter pilots transition to fixed wing aircraft at CommutAir,  United Airlines’ fastest growing regional airline partner.

Military veteran rotor pilots already meet the 750-hour restricted Air Transport Pilot (ATP) requirements, but many fall short of the 250 Pilot-in-Command hours required in a fixed wing aircraft. CommutAir will financially assist pilots with up to $22,100 to complete fixed wing certificate requirements.

The key differentiator of CommutAir’s RTP program is that an RTP participant can make their own flying arrangements at their local flight school or flying club and not require to relocate to some far-away “pre-approved” flight school.  Another distinguishing feature of the CommutAir RTP is that it is also available to civilian helicopter pilots seeking an airline job.

Through 2019, CommutAir will triple in size to an all-jet fleet of 61 aircraft and actively hire in all areas. CommutAir’s industry-leading Pilot benefits include:

  • Guaranteed Captain Pay after Year 1
  • Quarterly Captain Retention Bonuses
  • Rapid upgrades
  • Top-Tier pay and benefits – including the industry’s first and best Commuter policy
