Post Air Wisconsin Airman Trainee Program?

I'm currently a CFI at a busy flight school building 100 hours per month. I have 550 hours so far and just saw that Air Wisconsin has a program where you can apply to with just 500 hours called the Airman Trainee Program. Has anyone have experience with this program? Should I just wait till I have 1,500 hours and apply to various regionals instead? Apparently the Airman Trainee program comes with benefits, but I'm sure you have to commit to working with Air Wisconsin the moment you become a trainee.

It’s a pretty cool program in my opinion. They fly you out for the interview which is just a short written and HR interview. There’s also a company presentation and Q/A type thing. Buy you lunch and pay you 100$. If accepted you take a drug test and fill out forms. Once the background check passes you go to orientation and get flight benefits and all that setup. You call them once a month and update your hours and they pay you a little bit and you get to use the benifits which is pretty cool. No obligation to fly for AWAC after but it is helpful to see the company in a bit more depth then just one interview allows. Everyone at AWAC has been great in my experience so far and you really can’t lose by taking part in the program. Let me know if you have other questions!

If accepted into the program, would you be required to interview again if you chose to work for Air Wisconsin upon reaching ATP minimums?

No, once you hit your minimums (1000/1250/1500) you'd go right to your ATP-CTP course before Indoc.

My understanding is:

There is no commitment to them unless you utilize them for your ATP training (ground school and simulator).

There is another interview to become a first officer. Each month you are supposed to call in to update your hours and watch an online video. Those videos will help prep you for the interview.

Hope that helps.

Has anyone here attended the Airman Trainee Program interview recently? I have a couple questions, if I can message someone about it.

As long as you have the CJO/Get hired, you have completed the HR interview and so long as you apply and want the FO position when you have the hours, they will set you up with an over the phone technical interview.
