Airline Pilot After Completing Training


Over the years we had so many students come to us in the same situation, just wanting more out of life. They expressed they didn’t care for their job, or their current line of work was hard on their bodies so they were looking for something different. 

Most already had an interest in aviation and many were already working towards their private pilot license on the side. 

When we looked for solutions we realized there weren’t many.

Their options were go to college for several years, wasting a ridiculous amount of time in classrooms learning about basic Gen Ed stuff that didn’t relate at all to what they would do as a professional pilot…

Or they could go to the big name school that most of us have heard of.  However, researching online forums quickly revealed that the big name school actually sucks.

They have no standard way of teaching and just cram people through. They have become known throughout the industry as producing sub-par pilots. 

We heard countless stories of people who were forced to take check rides when they were clearly not ready…

So waste several years or miss out on quality instruction that results in being a safe and competent pilot. 

We knew at that moment we had to step up and fill the gap

So we designed the Fast Track Airline Pilot Program to help you get through your training in less than a year, without cutting any corners on the quality of training you receive.


Will I be able to actually get a job as an airline pilot?

The airlines have shown the strongest hiring demand we have seen in decades. With a large number of current pilots facing mandatory retirement at 65 and a growing demand in air travel it has been forecasted that we will need 649,000 new pilots over the next 20 years! 

The airline industry isn’t saturated with pilots….yet!

I wish I could afford to become a pilot…

We knew this would be an issue for many people, so when we put together the Fast Track Airline Pilot Program we were relentless in our search for a financing partner to offer students a way to complete training and pay nothing out of pocket! 

Our recommended lender understands aviation and offers financing with deferred payments for up to 3 years, allowing you to not only complete the program, but also complete the time building phase before making full payments!

I live too far way…

No problem! We have put together fully furnished student housing to take off the pressure and allow you to focus fully on your training. You can even wrap the housing costs into your loan meaning you won’t have to pay anything out of pocket!

You may be wondering…”Can I even learn how to fly?”

Many people are shocked to find out that you don’t have to be extremely talented or smart to become a pilot. Most people will have no issue picking up this skill! 

Which school is the best?

We have simply put together the best school in every aspect. We have the best fleet with a variety of aircraft, the best team with both young and older highly experienced instructors, we train at the best airport which isn’t too busy but still offers valuable ATC (Air Traffic Control) experience, and we offer the best atmosphere with a student first approach to everything we do. 

What about the weather in Iowa?

Ahh yes….let me ask you, would you want to fly on an airline with a pilot who has never flown in the wind? 

When you train with us you will get exposed to all aspects of weather from flying through the clouds which we call actual IMC, to learning to deal with the wind, and of course you will learn about winter operations and avoiding icing. Pilots who train in the real weather are simply better pilots and significantly safer pilots.

Look, after going through our Fast Track Airline Pilot Program you will without a doubt be an exceptional pilot, with all the certificates and ratings through multi engine instructor so you will stand out from the crowd and be very employable!

“Us Flight Co is a top flight school in Des Moines. I have been pursuing my private pilots license while finishing my senior year of high school. Because of navigating high school classes I was matched one on one with an instructor. This has been a great match and I appreciate the one on one learning I am receiving. Us Flight CO’s fleet of aircraft is diverse and expanding. As a student you have plenty of hours for flying and ground instruction. There is also flexibility to work with your school classes or employment hours.”

Can I Work While I Do This?

A part time job is manageable while in the program, however to maximize flight time the more flexible you can be the better. A full time job is not recommended while enrolled in the program. If you need help covering living expenses while attending we may be able to wrap those into your loan.

complete the program as they are already familiar with our processes, aircraft and airspace.
