PSA Offers New Military Transition Program for Aviation Mechanics to Begin Civilian Career

PSA Airlines is offering separated military aviation maintenance mechanics a path to transfer into the commercial aviation industry. Experienced military maintenance mechanics, coming from either a fixed or rotary-wing background, who are interested in earning their Airframe & Powerplant (A&P) license are eligible to receive up to $10,000 to assist with the transition. PSA is supporting this military transition by sponsoring the full cost of the A&P course, FAA license testing, tools and toolbox.

“This new and exciting military transition program is one other way PSA Airlines is committed to finding the best and brightest individuals to join our Maintenance organization,” said Gary Pratt, vice president – Maintenance and Engineering. “With our incredible growth, there has never been a better time to join the PSA family and experience a culture that supports our team members and encourages professional development.”

Additionally, once a military aviation mechanic transitions to an FAA licensed A&P mechanic through this program, they will join PSA with industry-leading first-year pay and unparalleled benefits, including the following:

  • Industry-leading first-year pay up to $52,000
  • $2,500 sign on bonus
  • Up to $7,500 bonus based on verified experience
  • Comprehensive paid company training
  • Maintain one of the youngest regional fleets which include Bombardier CRJ900, CRJ700 and CRJ200 aircraft.
  • Relocation assistance of $2,500 for select bases

PSA says interested candidates will need to obtain the 8610-2 from a FAA Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) in order to take the PSA-verified course. Upon completion of the transition course and once a mechanic obtains their A&P license, they will be committed to PSA and have the opportunity to start working at one of PSA’s eight maintenance facilities.
