Hey guys! Had a quick question. So the $11,000 in tuition reimbursement sounds great but I’ve just started at ATP flight school and the word around here is that if you sign up for tuition reimbursement at an airline you forfeit your opportunity to get the sign on bonus when you start flying for the airline at 1500 hours.
The ATP website makes it out that you can get both tuition reimbursement and the sign on bonus at this page here:
If it’s not true then the $11,000 tuition reimbursement is only worth it if the airline you are applying to has a sign on bonus lower than $11,000. For example PSA airlines sign on bonus is $15,000 so I’d be better off to not sign for tuition reimbursement and hold out for the sign on bonus.
If anyone has any info on this I’d greatly appreciate it. Maybe anyone out there who has done the tuition reimbursement and got the sign on bonus. It’s had to find a definite answer anywhere.
Thanks again in advance. Great blog guys. I love reading your posts everyday. Keep it up.
