Rotary Transition Program

Use your previous experience as a military aviator to earn your ratings at reduced minimums. Take advantage of local grants, scholarships and GI Bill® funding as you gain the experience needed to breeze into a civilian career with an Airline, Cargo or Corporate company. Our flight instructors are professional, courteous and knowledgeable and many have military backgrounds just like you. We have the largest and newest fleet in Middle Tennessee; which means you don’t have to worry about aircraft or schedule availability. Our RTP students are able to build valuable PIC time by utilizing our aircraft to take trips around the country. We’ve trained dozens of RTP students who have made a successful transition to the civilian world, be it flying for an airline or some other career path. Come get your fixed wing add-ons with the best flight school in TN!
