Convert Your Helicopter Time into Airline qualified 

Military rotor pilots only need 750 hours total time, including 250 hours of fixed wing time to achieve R-ATP minimums.

Here’s how it works

  • Our Flight Instructor assigned to you will audit your flying hours to determine how much fixed wing time you need.
  • VT AAA will work with one of our airline partners to help pay for your training.
  • You train as your schedule permits!
  • Upon completion of your minimums, you go to the airlines as a first officer.
