Pilot In Command job at Priority Air Charter LLC in Apple Creek OH
Description, duties, responsibilities
Priority Air Charter is an FAA approved 135 On-Demand Air Carrier. We currently operate 3 Cessna Caravan’s and 3 Pilatus PC12’s. The operational area includes the entire continental United States, Mexico and Canada.
You will be transporting auto and aircraft parts, medical supplies, donor organs, oil field equipment, tooling for power plants and any other items that need to be somewhere quick.
We operate in an “On-Demand” flying environment. This means the majority of our trips are not scheduled ahead of time. Auto assembly plants may be shutting down, mechanics may urgently need the part you are transporting, surgeons and patients need the organ you are bringing. To accomplish our missions, we have a basic schedule for our captains. All of our pilots operate on a 10 days on in a row and 4 days off/ 9 days on in a row and 5 days off in a row schedule.
Upon completion of a trip, you are off duty for a minimum of ten hours of rest. More rest time applies if needed to satisfy maximum 8 hours of revenue flight time in a 24 hour period rule.
Because of the urgent nature of our flying, full time pilots need to live within 15 minutes of our airport (OH22). This enables you to have “wheels off” in 45 minutes during the day and one hour at night.
When we are busy you could fly 4-5 trips per week. During the slower times it may be 1-3 trips per week. Most Caravan trips are out and back. However, a caravan captain may be left away from home base due to weather or freight schedule. A lot of the PC12 trips can be a couple days long with multiple flights to numerous airports.
Most of the flying is single pilot IFR after the training is complete. All our training is in house including the check ride. New pilots start off in the Caravans and move up to the PC12’s after 500-1000 hours PIC in the Caravans. Exceptions to this are made if a pilot has PC12 experience. Full time pilots are averaging 600-1000 hours per year.
Base pay is $924.00 per week. After 38.5 flight hours per 10 day cycle you would be paid $17.50 per flight hour. Also, after 38.5 non-flight duty hours you would get an additional $12.50 per duty hour. (This covers loading-unloading, waiting for the next trip, customs and other non-flight time.) The company covers your hotel costs plus a $45 per day per diem for meals when overnight away from home base. For each international trip, the pilot gets an additional $25.00 bonus. You earn an extra $100.00 when you do a double trip. (A double trip is when we book a second trip after you are out on the first one and we get paid for a leg we don't fly.) We provide health insurance that we pay 100% of the premium for you, your qualifying spouse and children. There is possibility of profit sharing at the end of a busy month. Average yearly income excluding profit sharing and health insurance is $48,000-$5,000 with benefits.
We do fly in a wide range of weather and about half the flying is at night. Our dispatchers book the trips, file flight plans, print out weather for the trip, fuel the airplane and have it waiting outside for you when you arrive. All our airplanes have XM weather, Garmin 430W or 530W's and are certified for known ice. We do our own maintenance and all airplanes are washed at least once per week. I don't think you will find many 135 airplanes that are as well taken care of as ours are.
