Default Cadet Program

Looking for feedback on the "Cadet Program" that seems to be all the rage with regionals lately. Anybody do this? Essentially just logging referral bonuses and building time, I know. Hoping for some insight on whether or not its a valuable experience.

I am in the Aviators program at Trans States, it is a good program to learn about the airline and talk to a bunch of line pilots in person. I am glad I have joined I am still two year at a minimum to get to an airline. The program is pretty easy for you to do. Message me if you have other questions.

Not to burst your bubble or rain on your parade but there's plenty of other better options than being a "cadet" for TSA. I'm guessing you're one of those in college in the sticks of Illinois. Most of the guys I fly with can't wait to get out yesterday if possible.

Thanks for the input, minimumwage. Your opinion is noted. Have a nice day

The Aviator's program is a fantastic way to meet line pilots, network, and get those travel benefits so you can live the jet-set lifestyle . The Airmanship Project is also a great entry for your resume.

Actually I am born and raised in STL, I enjoy it here, that is why Trans States or Go Jets is at the top of my list. Their Cadet program is a great no commitment program. I understand there are some options out there that have better perks maybe, but I am pretty content in staying in STL.
