Citation Ultra/Encore 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 Citation Ultra/Encore PIC position requires 2500 hours total time and 500 hours multi. Full-time pilots average 15-17 flying days per month and work a 10-5 schedule, with several nights of the 10 at home. All Citation flights consist of a PIC and SIC. We often cater to dedicated repeat clients to popular vacation destinations across the U.S., Mexico, and the Caribbean.
