United Offers Pilot Training for Military Pilots to Transition to Civilian Flying 

Turbine engines, whether flying vertically or horizontally, are still turbine engines. That’s why United is offering a pilot training pathway for military personnel ready to transition to civilian life. No need to worry about certifications or qualifications – if you’re a qualified pilot, you’re guaranteed a job as a First Officer at United. 

And here’s the best part: you don’t need your ATP rating before you apply. Earn it whenever you’re ready, before starting your new job at United. Transitioning careers can be tough, but United’s personalized support throughout the process will help ensure a smooth pilot training journey from military duty to civilian pilot. 

Reasons to Apply or Hire Pilots with Prior Experience 

Companies and pilots can both benefit from hiring people with prior piloting experience, no matter the type of aircraft: 

  • Reduced Training Costs: Experienced pilots have already undergone extensive training, which can save an airline both time and money in terms of onboarding and initial training costs. 
  • Proven Track Record: Pilots with experience have a proven track record of success in the industry. Their previous flight hours and performance can provide a reliable indicator of their skills and abilities. 
  • In-Flight Decision Making: Experienced pilots have been exposed to a variety of flight situations and have developed the ability to make quick, informed decisions in stressful circumstances. This is invaluable in ensuring passenger safety. 
  • Problem-solving Skills: An experienced pilot will have dealt with numerous challenges and unexpected situations. This experience enhances their problem-solving skills, making them better equipped to handle similar situations in the future. 
  • Familiarity with Procedures: Experienced pilots are already familiar with flight procedures, regulations, and protocols. This familiarity can increase operational efficiency and compliance with safety standards. 
  • Customer Confidence: Passengers tend to feel safer knowing that they’re in the hands of an experienced pilot. This can enhance customer confidence and loyalty, thereby potentially boosting the airline’s reputation and profitability. 
  • Mentorship Opportunities: Experienced pilots can serve as mentors to less experienced colleagues, sharing their knowledge and expertise, and fostering a culture of continuous learning and improvement within the company. 
  • Reduced Risk: Hiring experienced pilots can reduce the risk of accidents caused by pilot error, which can have significant financial and reputational consequences for an airline. 

With approximately 3000 of our active pilots already coming from military backgrounds, you’ll be joining a community that understands your experience and values your skills. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity. Apply now and let United help you soar to new heights in your career.
