Mesa Airlines is looking for a few good pilots! The airline launched a Direct-Entry Captain Referral Program, rewarding referrals.
Here’s What You Need to Know:
The Deal: Refer a qualified pilot. If they get hired as a Captain at Mesa Airlines, you earn $20,000!
The Criteria: Your referred pilot must:
- Possess at least 1,000 hours of relevant commercial air carrier experience
- Hold an Airline Transport Pilot License (ATP)
- Have logged 100 flying hours in the past year
Speaking on this exciting initiative, Jonathan Ornstein, the Chairman and CEO of Mesa Airlines, remarked, “This program is our way of rewarding the community for assisting us in bringing top-notch talent into our fold. We’re not just offering a job; we’re offering a promising career pathway with Mesa, leading to United through their Aviate program.”

Payout Details: Mesa splits the referral bonus into two phases:
- You’ll be paid the first half ($10,000) when the referred pilot completes their training.
- The airline pays the remaining half after the pilot completes 6 months of service from their initial flight duty with Mesa.
