Flexjet seeks pilots for 50 incoming aircraft
Flexjet has boosted its pay and benefits in order to attract 350 pilots for 50 new aircraft. First year pilots earn from $128,000 and benefits include home-based crewing, flexible scheduling and guaranteed captain upgrades.

Flexjet plans to hire 350 pilots to fly the additional 50 jets it will be entering into service by the end of 2022.

“We want Flexjet to be a career destination for pilots not only for the long term earning potential but schedule, quality of life and modern equipment,” says chief operating officer Megan Wolf. “No other company can match the innovation of our Domestic Red Label and International Large Cabin programmes, which uniquely empower pilots to select the programme that is right for them. We think of the pilot as an individual, not a number.”

Flexjet employs over 800 pilots who fly its fleet of nearly 200 aircraft including the Embraer Phenom 300, Legacy 450 and Praetor 500, the Bombardier Challenger 350 and the Gulfstream G450 and G650. And, in the coming months, the company will be entering into service 50 additional aircraft, increasing the number of aircraft in every fleet type by the end of 2022.

“At Flexjet, our culture is built around three principles, including putting employees first because they are the foundation of a service company,” says OneSky chief administrative officer Robert Sullivan. “When we are looking for candidates that best fit into our company, we look for characteristics that align with the two other principles: making decisions with a long term approach to relationships and having a fanatical attention to detail.”

Flexjet's recruitment team will be travelling the US to conduct interviews at aviation industry career events in addition to conducting virtual and in-person screening interviews.
