Flights Inc offers unparalleled career opportunities for our graduates. Students who complete their Private Pilot, Instrument Rating, Commercial Pilot and Flight Instructor Certificates with us will be given an opportunity to checkout as a Flight Instructor.
Flights Inc places a high value on the quality of our flight instructors. We are not a Ďpilot millí; we hold the quality of training and the quality of our future pilots as our first priority. Our instructors are not simply trained to pass the checkride; they are trained to be effective, efficient and responsible professionals.
With this in mind, instructors at Flights Inc are paid well above the national average. Our independently contracted instructors make a minimum of $35 per hour (as compared to $12.50 per hour at a comparable national competitor). Furthermore, Flights Inc is a busy flight school issuing around 200 pilot certificates per year. So, our instructors not only have the opportunity to build flight time, but also to build a financially sustainable career.
Applicants who choose to stay within our organization are offered a guaranteed interview with our sister company, Key Lime Air. This part 121 air carrier operates Dornier 328 Jets, Embraer 120s and Fairchild Metroliners in both passenger carrying and cargo operations.
