Those who have defended this nation deserve to be recognized and celebrated. RTAG is committed to honoring both veterans and their families.
RTAG takes pride in partnering with the best veteran friendly organizations and assisting them in their mission to provide veterans scholarships, grants & other benefits.
RTAG hosts conventions that bring together industry experts, schools, vendors, corportate partners and employers committed to hiring veterans across the U.S.
Since the beginning, RTAG has made education and mentorship a priority. RTAG Convention info sessions are taught by industry experts, with topics ranging from financial planning, resume prep, VA benefits, airline recruiter briefings, spouse education and more.
Rotary To Airline Group, or RTAG, began as a campaign to address the national pilot shortage with both professional and experienced Rotary Wing Aviators. This movement has since evolved, now endeavoring to place Veterans in the Airline Industry, regardless of their experience. Our Airline Partners recognize the value of our Veterans, not only placing them behind the controls but hiring them across the industry.
The Great Pilot Shortage is finally upon us! Stop what you’re doing and start your pilot training yesterday! Did you know that over the next decades there will be 2-3,000 mandatory retirements a year due to pilots reaching the maximum allowable age of 65?! Think about that. That’s 165-250+ pilots a MONTH needed! That doesn’t even include the ones who maxed out their 401Ks and want to retire early or the ones who will lose their medical before hitting 65! And the only way those major airline positions will be available to YOU will be if you start at your regional NOW!Read more
Many pilots that begin at the regional level have aspirations of eventually applying to the majors- American, Alaska, Delta, Fedex, United, UPS, or even Hawaiian Airlines. With higher pay, promises of better schedules, and today’s rapidly rising seniority numbers, the major carriers will be a great place to be for years to come-and they will be needing more pilot than ever over the next decade. Getting into the majors sooner can have a dramatic impact on career earnings-possibly amounting to millions of dollars of additional income over time.Read more
I keep coming back. The wealth of information and quality people in the group make it a great resource for all who are looking to enter into the airline industry.
RTAG is such a great organization. The amount of helpful information and general goodwill towards transitioning veterans is quite amazing. They helped me make the transition and gave helpful advice all along the way.
Best Veterans group out there! Absolutely outstanding group of some of the greatest Americans I know!
It is difficult to make decisions that will impact the rest of your life. Having someone in your corner matters…I highly recommend reaching out. Their counsel and advice were exactly what my family and I needed to plan our next move.
Hands down the most informative and supportive group, and the single greatest resource for transitioning military aviators.
