Flexjet increases pilot salaries

Flexjet LLC, a provider of fractional jet ownership and the only provider to offer a unique dedicated crewing model, has announced substantial salary increases for Red Label pilots, making them the highest paid in the industry, the company said.

Red Label pilots´ total compensation is greater than that of their competitors by 25 percent or more. This industry-leading pay, and the opportunity to fly the industry´s youngest fleet with the most desirable aircraft, are just a couple of the reasons why so many pilots are choosing to join the Red Label Program.

Red Label by Flexjet is the carrier´s premium offering, which has proven to be a differentiator among both Owners and pilots. Compensation of these highly trained and experienced pilots is so important to Flexjet that the company fought for its ability to increase salaries unilaterally in the Red Label Program in recent union contract negotiations.

First-year Flexjet pilots using the preferential bid schedule can expect to make USD 80,000 per year; a fifth-year Challenger 350 pilot could earn as much as USD 176,000 a year and a third-year Red Label chief aircraft commander flying a Gulfstream G650 could earn USD 205,000 annually.

In response to Flexjet´s unprecedented business growth and flight demand, the company intends to grow its fleet by 14 percent, which will require growth in pilot ranks by 25 percent this year. Prospective Flexjet pilots can apply via https://www.flexjet.com/careers/pilots.
