Galesburg, IL and Iowa City, IA

Jet Air is seeking talented pilots who value professionalism, teamwork, and safety.

Why fly for Jet Air?

Professionalism: We care about our crews and clients, which leads us to pursue the highest level of safety. We have an implemented Safety Management System, well-maintained aircraft, and an experienced team to work with.

Longevity / Growth: We have been in the business for 50 years, growing through various economic times.

Home-Base Operation: We have a strong customer base of local clients for both Part 91 and 135 flights, making a large percentage of our flights day-trips so pilots spend more nights at home. While we do diversify and fly for Jet Card companies and brokers, we do not keep any aircraft on the road full time and do our best to maximize the quality of life for our crews.

Family Oriented: We take care of our team members and their families. Examples of this include our annual staff and family Holiday party and the ability to choose hard-days off for important dates (birthdays, anniversaries, etc.) rather than being locked-in to a set On/Off schedule.

Jet Air offers competitive pay and benefits to all eligible team members. Full-time pilots can choose hard-days off in addition to vacation time. Pilots do not need to report to the office on non-flying days. Other benefits include health insurance, life insurance, 401(k) matching, profit sharing, aircraft rental discounts, paid training, hourly and overnight per diem, and more.
