Zero Time to Airline

Launch Your Aviation Career

You didn’t run through the grass, arms outstretched, dreaming of working in a cubicle. You stared up at the sky, watching jets scream by, wishing you were in the pilot's seat.


We’ll help you get less than two years


Zero Time to Airline is a program built for those who want to live life off the ground.

With demand for pilots higher than ever, this is one of the best times in history to become a pilot.


But conventional flight training can take years to complete. The pace can move far too slow and many flight schools simply aren’t built with the intention of getting you to the airlines.


Our Zero Time to Airline program is completely different. Its entire purpose is to turn you into a pilot that every airline wants to hire.


We strive to create the best pilots in the country and we want you to be one of them.

What are the Requirements to Join?

The Zero Time to Airline program isn't available to just anyone. Here are the main requirements:


  • Must be able to train full time (8 hours per day)
  • Be 17 years of age or older
  • Hold a 3rd class medical certificate or higher (if you don’t know what that is we’ll help you)
  • Pass an entry interview
  • Have approved financing in place prior to the start of the program (we'll help you with this too)
  • US citizen or non US citizen with TSA approval

Our Financing Program

The total cost of this program is $75,995. Through our financing partner, you could be financed without payments until you're working as a CFI.

We’ve partnered with Meritize to give you a funding option that works. While a Meritize loan does look at your credit score, they also consider your past academic and other skill-based training (Please do not apply for for financing with Meritize until interviewing directly with Thrust Flight.).


We realize you may not have a long credit history, and that’s ok, you don’t have to have great credit, or even a co-borrower (but if you do, even better).
