Phenom 300 operator GrandView Aviation is raising starting salaries for captains to $110,000

GrandView Aviation, the 26th largest operator, based on charter and fractional flight hours, is upping pilot pay.

Airshare, another prominent Embraer Phenom 300 operator, increased pilot pay last month.

Direct hire captains starting salaries at GrandView will be $110,000. That includes a $12,000 hiring bonus available for those already type-rated in the Phenom 300.

The operator has a fatigue management program that includes a maximum 12-hour scheduled duty day, and a compensatory rest program.

Employee healthcare is covered 100% with the ability to add dependents to the insurance, in addition to the company’s loss of medical/license coverage through Harvey Watt & Company.

The company also provides a 401K matching plan with 100% vesting from day one.

“Providing a top-tier benefits plan enables our employees to focus on safety and the task at hand instead of worrying about medical costs and how to cover a deductible,” said David Hughes, Director of Human Resources at GrandView Aviation.

“We’re putting the health and well-being of our team before all else.” Said Jessie Naor, Chief Operating Officer of GrandView Aviation.

GrandView Aviation will continue its growth plans into 2022 by hiring over 70 pilots through the third quarter.

The charter and jet card operator projects it will fly 20,000 hours in 2022. It plans to increase its fleet size by 50%.

The company is headquartered at Martin State Airport outside Baltimore. It has bases in Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Austin, Phoenix, and Denver
