Zero Time to Airline®

Launch Your Aviation Career

Zero Time to Airline is designed to train the best pilots our airline partners will hire.

We are not a pilot mill. Thrust Flight's goal is not to create the most pilots, but to create the best pilots. Zero Time to Airline is an elite program designed to create the type of pilots the airlines will hire first. Zero Time to Airline is not just flight training- this program trains students for a career flying for the airlines.

No, like really.

Schools tell you all the time that their price is all inclusive- but usually what they mean is they include everything they decided you need. We know everyone is different- you may need more training on your private than your instrument. That's why we actually do include everything you will need during your training. As long as you are progressing at a pace that will allow you to finish in a timely manner, we will train you as much as it takes. Ask our competitors if they can say the same!
