Flexjet Increases Red Label Pilot Salaries

Makes The Group The Industry’s Highest Paid

Flexjet has announced substantial salary increases for Red Label pilots, making them the highest paid in the industry.

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 leading 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.

“For more than 25 years, Flexjet has challenged the status quo of fractional private jet travel,” said Michael Silvestro, Chief Executive Officer of Flexjet. “We are proud to announce additional investment in our pilots that will further enhance our industry-leading approach. One of our core fundamental principles is that employees are the foundation of a service organization. We feel strongly that our pilots are key to our business success. Proof of that commitment is offering compensation unmatched by any other fractional provider in the industry.”

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

Other pilot benefits include:

  • Over 80 domiciles to choose from and the ability to change as the pilot wishes
  • Company-paid travel to and from domiciles
  • Every pilot is trained to PIC FAR Part 135 standards, making each pilot eligible as a Captain
  • 24/7 support from Flexjet’s state-of-the-art operations control center
  • Medical plans to cover families for less than $200 a month
  • Company-paid short and long-term disability, life insurance, loss of license insurance
  • Highest per diem in the industry, dramatically improving the day-to-day experience on the road

One of Red Label’s most distinctive features is dedicated crewing. This feature provides Flexjet pilots with a sense of ownership and familiarity with their assigned aircraft and teams. This also enhances the travel experience for Red Label Owners. Red Label pilots enjoy very competitive quarterly bonus incentives based on performance.

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.
