King Air Pilot in Command – Full-Time 

About Us: Founded in 1991, Silverhawk Aviation is a trusted and respected charter service provider that creates upscale, comfortable, and memorable private charter experiences. We focus on connecting Midwest customers with destinations across North America, Central America, and the Caribbean. Our growing charter operation is adding pilots who put people first, do whatever it takes, and never settle. If those values are important to you and you desire a better work-life balance, we would welcome the opportunity to get to know you better and share our vision of the future with Silverhawk.


Company Ownership Program: At Silverhawk, our company ownership program makes you a true partner in the organization. Each year, every participant receives plan units that work very similarly to receiving stock. In short, as the company grows and profits, you are rewarded with an annual profit-sharing bonus that grows with your plan units. In the future, if it ever made sense to sell or partner with another company, you’d share in the sale proceeds.

Job Description: Our King Air Pilot in Command position requires 1500 hours total time and 50 hours multi.  Full-time pilots average 15-17 flying days per month. Our King Air pilots typically perform weekday trips throughout Nebraska and Kansas and are home nightly.
