Trans States Airlines Rolls Out Massive Signing On Bonus for Pilots

Trans States Airlines has once again demonstrated its ongoing commitment to providing industry-leading pilot compensation by rolling out a $44,000 signing bonus for new hire First Officers.  The new bonus, which includes an additional $6,000 bonus for pilots with a type rating, solidifies Trans States' position among the top paying regional airlines in terms of first year compensation. 

Total first year compensation for new hire First Officers will now approach $86,000.  Pilots with airline experience who are hired as Captain Qualified First Officers (CQFOs) can fly as a First Officer or a Captain, and can expect a minimum year one compensation package of up to $90,000, with the opportunity to earn even more when flying as a Captain.  Once on property, Trans States pilots can also earn referral and mentor bonuses.
