PSA Airlines and SkyWarrior Sign Rotor Transition Program Agreement

PSA leadership and members of the recruiting team with representatives from SkyWarrior.

PSA Airlines and SkyWarrior Inc. formally signed an industry-leading Rotor Transition Program agreement helping military rotor pilots transition to commercial aviation. PSA is partnering with Pensacola-based SkyWarrior and will contribute up to $23,000 toward flight-time requirements to help military rotor pilots achieve Restricted-Airline Transport Pilot (R-ATP) certification. Most military rotor pilots qualify for the Federal Aviation Administration’s lowest-minimum R-ATP. Although many of these pilots have the 750-hour total time, they fall short of the 250-hour fixed-wing Pilot in Command (PIC) requirement or 25-hour multi-engine requirement.

PSA’s Rotor Transition Program is different from other programs and offers more to pilots in the flexibility and affordability of the program. The program offers pilots the choice on how to fund getting flight hours and no GI bill use is required. Pilots can also build hours on their time, as long as it is completed in three months. Partnering with SkyWarrior also provides pilots the most competitive price-per-flight-hour in an affordable location, Pensacola, FL.

PSA’s new Rotor Transition Program initiative is just one way PSA Airlines offers the most comprehensive benefits to its pilots. PSA Airlines is the fastest-growing regional airline in the country, and with a true pilot flow through agreement to American, a career as a mainline pilot for the largest airline in the world can start with this program.

PSA Airlines today opened its crew base at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), marking the fifth crew base in its operation. The new DCA expansion will be the crew base for 125 employees.

PSA currently operates 56 daily flights from DCA. That number has grown nearly 400 percent since November 2014 and the airline expects that number to continue to grow. PSA plans to continue adding departures operated for American from DCA, which offers this opportunity to open a new crew domicile, while creating schedule efficiencies for their network.

“This is exciting news for PSA as we grow our crew base footprint and offer new domiciles for our employees,” said Dion Flannery – President, PSA Airlines. “Today’s DCA base opening is proof of our growth and stability and further positions PSA as the airline of choice for the best aviators in the business.”

The wholly owned subsidiary of American Airlines Group has doubled its fleet size and employee base since the announcement of the airline’s imminent growth in December 2013. This will be their second added crew base since the start of this expansion.
