Flexjet Ready to Expand

In response to increased demand for business aviation flights, Flexjet announced a plan to hire an additional 350 pilots and add a further 50 aircraft to its fleet by the end of 2022. Currently, the operator has a team of 800 pilots who fly its fleet of nearly 200 aircraft. The Flexjet fleet includes the Embraer Phenom 300, Legacy 450, and Praetor 500, the Bombardier Challenger 350, and the Gulfstream G450 and G650.

“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,” said Flexjet Chief Operating Officer Megan Wolf.

OneSky Chief Administrative Officer Robert Sullivan said “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.”
