PILOT OPPORTUNITIES

Whether you’re fresh out of flight school or you’ve been flying for decades, Ameriflight offers the opportunity to get the most out of your career as a pilot.

For new pilots with budding careers in aviation, the path to becoming a Captain has never been more accessible. And for pilots with more experience under their belt, Ameriflight affords the opportunity to keep flying beyond the age of 65. This means that our pilots are able to continue pursuing their passion.

Depending on aircraft, Ameriflight allows pilots to earn the title of Captain at just 750 flight hours.

Beginning a career with Ameriflight means having access to top-notch training and promising opportunities. Working side-by-side with seasoned experts will set you up for success as you grow in your passion and profession.

Our pilots rack up PIC Turbine multi-engine hours while perfecting their stick and rudder skills in a hands-on work environment. Piloting turboprop aircraft in IFR conditions hones the instrument proficiency and airmanship that serves as the backbone of the rest of their careers.
