Against a continuing shortage of pilots, Jet Linx is stepping up incentives for its folks who fly the airplanes

Jet card and management provider Jet Linx Aviation announced the launch of its new Time & Tenure Career Pathway for pilots.

The company says it reaffirms “its commitment to attracting and retaining top pilot talent.”

The move comes against a continued pilot shortage.

“This newly defined professional pathway for pilots in the Jet Linx workforce is aimed at providing more stability and predictability to pilots with defined titles and salary progression based on their total time and time in type, as well as their tenure with the company. The pathway offers formalized salary bands and clear matriculation from First Officer to Senior Captain across Light, Midsize, Super Midsize, and Heavy jets in the Jet Linx nationwide fleet,” according to a news release..

“Jet Linx has always been committed to providing its pilots with the best possible working environment and opportunities for career advancement,” said Jamie Walker, Jet Linx President & CEO.

He added, “With the launch of the Time & Tenure Career Pathway, our Company is taking our commitment to a pro-pilot culture to the next level. This groundbreaking program comes after many conversations and extensive feedback from our flight crews, carefully conducted over the course of many months.”

Through the program, current pilots at the company can qualify as Junior Captains with fewer hours than Direct Entry Captain requirements while enjoying captain pay and duty assignments.

The pathway also allows pilots to earn Senior Captain status, saluting their continued service to the Company with five additional floating holidays and increased incentives for flight time.

Additionally, Jet Linx pilots will be the first to receive access to open positions, continue to enjoy priority in upgrades, and, most importantly, will retain salary and benefits when moving to a new aircraft or size category.

To ensure competitive compensation relative to the industry, pilots receive a compensation review every six months with a guaranteed annual merit increase.
