Republic Airline has partnered with ATP Flight School in its Tuition
Reimbursement Program to contribute financial support for pilots in
flight training. This program provides professional development and
career progression for pilots, setting the course to gain the necessary
experience to fly for the airline.
“This partnership gives us an ongoing and meaningful presence at the
training centers where we recruit,” said Tonya Gilbert, Republic’s
managing director of Talent Acquisition. “ATP’s students know that we
are making a tangible investment in their careers and in the school’s
program. We’re absolutely delighted to have established this kind of
relationship with ATP. They’re a great partner with a great reputation
for the quality of their instruction and the quality of their graduates.”
“ATP has proven that Tuition Reimbursement builds a predictable supply
of pilots, which is a competitive advantage for airlines like Republic.
With Republic’s entry into the program, pilots gain experience to
prepare them for a successful future in the airline industry,” said
Danielle Calnin, ATP’s director of Airline Business Development.
The ATP partnership enables ATP flight instructors to interview with
Republic between 300 and 500 hours total flight time. After a successful
interview and meeting Republic’s qualifications, pilots receive a
conditional offer of employment from Republic and tuition reimbursement
payments while working as a CFI at ATP. Upon meeting Airline Transport
Pilot minimums, pilots then begin flying at Republic and continue
receiving tuition reimbursement payments during their first year of
employment. Pilots enrolled in the program will receive up to $11,000 in
tuition reimbursement payments and up to $6,500 in bonus compensation.
Republic pilots train to fly the Embraer E170 and E175 aircraft, the
most advanced commercial aircraft in the industry. Since the creation of
its first partnership program in 2015, Republic has had more than 500
pilot cadets receive conditional offers of employment, many of whom
already have transitioned into First Officers with the airline. For more
