Rotary Transition Program RTP

We Salute your Service!

Infinity Flight is excited  to provide a Rotary Transition Program (RTP) in partnership with Mercer County Community College. The RTP is designed to seamlessly convert commercially rated helicopter pilots who already have a solid foundation in aviation to fixed wing aircraft. This allows successful students to earn the Restricted ATP of 750 hours required to obtain a career with the world’s largest civilian airlines in the fastest time possible. The vast majority of students leave RTP training at Infinity with several job offers in hand and are able start their airline career in a matter of days or weeks.

Overview

The Rotary Transition Program (RTP) concentration of the MCCC Aviation Flight Technology A.A.S. degree program is a fast-paced flight training experience that provides commercially rated helicopter pilots who already have more than 500 hours of actual logged time the opportunity to transition into civilian commercial aviation with little or NO flight training cost if they choose to use their VA benefits. Each student will go through a transcript review process with the college prior to starting and will be advised of the classes they will need to complete in order to earn their Associates degree.

The RTP is a cohort-based model with start dates approximately every six weeks. The program is broken up into 4 phases: one online phase that must be completed in the six weeks prior to coming to New Jersey to fly, followed by three seven-week (approx.) flight phases that last 120-140 total days depending on a student’s start date. Please note that courses have a defined start and end date. Students cannot start a new phase until the next scheduled start date even if they finish a phase early. During the 3 phases of flight students will earn a PPL, Instrument, Commercial and Multi-Engine ratings along with 250 hours of flight time. 

RTP students are scheduled seven days a week (poor weather days are down time/study time) so it is important that students who choose to come through the RTP are able to devote 100 percent of their time to flight training.

If you are a student planning on using your VA benefits to cover all the costs of your flight training, please make sure you apply for your VA Certificate of Eligibility (COE) https://www.va.gov/
