Frontier Airlines Partners With Code 1 Maintenance School to Help Veterans Become Mechanics
Frontier Airlines has partnered with Code 1 Maintenance in Tucson, Arizona to create a fast-track program for military veterans with aviation maintenance experience to become Frontier aircraft maintenance technicians.
On Wednesday (October 11, 2023), Frontier Airlines announced the launch of a new partnership with Code 1 Maintenance in Tucson, Arizona. The collaboration includes the creation of a fast-track program for military veterans with aviation maintenance experience to obtain all necessary certifications to become Frontier maintenance technicians. Eligible veterans will also receive a pre-employment sign-on bonus of up to $50,000, as they work toward obtaining their Airframe & Powerplant (A&P) license and employment with Frontier Airlines.
In Wednesday’s announcement, Frontier Airlines’ Director of Regional Maintenance and a U.S. Navy veteran, Sean Adams, said,
“Most A&P license programs come with a financial burden, especially for those just coming off active duty. Candidates typically pay for the program, lodging, food, and transportation. However, Frontier’s up-front bonus will allow our candidates to cover these costs and provide them with a job offer in hand once they complete the program.”
Also commenting on the maintenance training collaboration, Code 1 Maintenance’s Founder, Jose Zaragoza, said,
“We’re excited to collaborate with Frontier Airlines. We appreciate partnering with aviation companies that prioritize a positive company culture and support veterans.”
Frontier Airlines’ Vice President of Human Resources, Steve Schuller, added,
“Frontier is committed to supporting our veterans not only with meaningful job opportunities, but also well after they join Team Frontier. We recognize and appreciate their service to our country and provide resources such as our Veteran’s Business Resource Group to help ensure that they have a rewarding employment experience once they come onboard.”
Frontier’s new fast-track Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) program is designed to identify veterans who already have a background in aviation maintenance that will allow them to quickly navigate the required training and transition to employment with Frontier in as little as two weeks.
