Frontier Airlines Partners with Code 1 Maintenance School to Help Military Veterans Become Commercial Airline Mechanics

Licensure Program Includes a Pre-Employment Signing Bonus of up to $50,000

TUCSON, Ariz. – Oct. 11, 2023 – Frontier Airlines (NASDAQ: ULCC) is partnering with aviation maintenance school Code 1 Maintenance in Tucson, Arizona to create a fast-track program for military veterans with experience in aviation maintenance to obtain necessary certifications to become Frontier Airlines maintenance technicians. The new program provides eligible veterans with a pre-employment sign-on incentive of up to $50,000 as they work towards obtaining their full Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) license and employment with Frontier Airlines.

“Most A&P license programs come with a financial burden, especially for those just coming off active duty,” said Sean Adams, a U.S. Navy veteran, and Frontier’s director of regional maintenance. “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.”

The program is designed to help identify veterans who already have a background in aviation maintenance that will allow them to be quickly navigate the required training and transition to employment with Frontier in as little as two weeks.

"We're excited to collaborate with Frontier Airlines,” said Jose Zaragoza, founder of Code 1 Maintenance. “We appreciate partnering with aviation companies that prioritize a positive company culture and support veterans.”

Frontier’s partnership with Code 1 Maintenance, a company that is majority veteran owned and operated, aims to assist military aircraft maintainers in transitioning to new opportunities. The program’s mission includes educating and empowering veterans to contribute meaningfully to the aviation industry.

“Frontier is committed to supporting our veterans not only with meaningful job opportunities, but also well after they join Team Frontier,” said Steve Schuller, vice president of human resources, Frontier Airlines. “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.”
