Helicopter Transition

Infinity Flight is pleased to be able to provide a Military Transition Program (MTP) in partnership with Piedmont Airlines. The MTP is designed to seamlessly convert military helicopter pilots who already have a solid foundation in aviation to fixed wing aircraft. This allows them to obtain a career with the world’s largest civilian airline in the fastest time possible.

In addition to $23,000 Piedmont is putting toward the training, pilots who complete the customized transition program will be placed in the next available Piedmont training class and receive a $16,200 signing bonus. Qualifying pilots will also be on a direct flow through track to American Airlines.

Pilots enrolled in this personalized fast track program can choose to use their VA benefits or utilize a variety of different funding options.

We understand that every pilot will come to us with different requirements. Give us a call and let us help you create a program that will meet your individual needs.
