Air Wisconsin Announces Enhanced Industry-Leading Pilot Hiring Incentives

Higher Cash Bonuses, Other Enticements Added To Program To Attract Pilots

Air Wisconsin Airlines has announced significant enhancements to its existing bonus program, increasing the value of cash bonuses to $57,000, including $8,000 for pilots type rated in a turbine aircraft.  When added to Air Wisconsin's competitive wage structure and best-in-class benefits, these increases position Air Wisconsin as the regional airline industry leader in new hire pilot compensation.  During the first three years of employment, a new pilot will receive between $260,000 and $317,000 in total pay and elected benefits.

New hire pilots can expect to upgrade to Captain in 18 to 24 months—likely faster for pilots hired in the next several months—as Air Wisconsin dramatically expands its pilot group in connection with its recently announced long-term agreement with United Airlines. 

In addition to industry-leading compensation and fast upgrades, Air Wisconsin pilots enjoy a structured, rapid career progression to United Airlines through the United Career Pathway Program.

According to Bob Frisch, Air Wisconsin's Chief Operating Officer, "Today's announcement highlights Air Wisconsin's commitment to attracting qualified pilots to its growing pilot group and creates best-in-class compensation to go along with the rapid upgrade opportunities created by our new partnership with United Airlines."
