Private Jet Company Plans to hire 350 pilots

23rd Oct 2022

United States based FlexJet announced it will go public in second quarter 2023 by merging with Horizon Acquisition Corporation II. Kenneth Ricci, Chairman of Flexjet, said that priority is to preserve the culture of the company and focus on the employees. Accordingly, the airline plans to hire 350 pilots, as announced previously, who will operate 50 ordered jets that will be added this year.

Flexjet is stable on pilot attraction and retention as said in its press release during its announcement of becoming a public business company:

“The Company’s unique pilot operating model referred to as “Dedicated Crewing” is one that assigns pilots to one specific airplane N-number. This provides an extremely comfortable and safe environment for the Company’s flight crews and the familiarity with their aircraft increases dispatch reliability over similar aircraft not flown with dedicated crews. In conjunction with its dedicated crews, Flexjet has made a commitment to maintaining the highest compensation among its pilot peer group as well as attractive work rules, making Flexjet an employer of choice and reducing pilot attrition during an extremely competitive pilot hiring environment. Flexjet’s average pilot new hire has more than twice the flight hour minimum required for application and 36% of our pilots have been with the Company for more than 15 years.”
