The $25,000 Tuition Reimbursement will be available from SkyWest for Cadets that are establishing a new loan with Pilot Access Loan, sign up to the SkyWest Pathway Program, and stay with the Cadet Program from start to finish, following two years as a Captain or 1,600 hours of P.I.C. time at SkyWest Airlines

Tuition Reimbursement will vary based on the loan amount as follows:

  • $100,000 and above = $25,000 Tuition Reimbursement

While this SkyWest Tuition Reimbursement of up to $25,000 is only available for Cadets using the Pilot Access Loan program, AeroGuard does also partner with several other lending partners to help make flight training more accessible, making your goals to become a pilot possible.

All AeroGuard cadets training in SkyWest’s Pilot Pathway Program will have a direct path to a job as a First Officer with SkyWest with a Guaranteed Interview.
