"What I like most about TransPac is the respect everyone has for one another. From the other instructors to class managers and standardization department all the way up to administration, a positive attitude and willingness to listen goes a long way with me. Everyone is a valued employee here at TransPac." - Brian Sharpe

These are more than just flight hours, it's flight experience that is going to help prepare you for your future. Full time employees have 5 day work weeks and a competitive compensation package that provides health benefits and paid vacation. All of this offers qualified instructors the opportunity to work hard and quickly develop the experience required to grow their career, while also enjoying their time off.

"One aspect that I have come to appreciate about TransPac is that the company operates like a mini-airline. Airplanes are dispatched on time, and professionalism is demanded from everyone. I have had the opportunity to enhance my aviation skillsets, both in the airplane teaching students and on the ground establishing a foundation for a successful career." - Jeff McMickell
