Jet Linx launches training partnership with Southwest Airlines; Reorganizes Flight Coordination department

The separate moves are designed to ensure Jet Linx has a future pipeline of pilots while enhancing the experience for its aircraft owners and jet card members

With new bases in New York, Chicago, Boston, and Austin opening this year and plans to expand to California and South Florida, Jet Linx unveiled two major initiatives designed to provide high standards and plentiful pilots for its customers.

With an industry-wide shortage of pilots, the Omaha-based aircraft management company unveiled today a three-way partnership with Southwest Airlines, the nation’s largest domestic carrier, and CAE, a global leader in pilot training for civil aviation. Jet Linx currently has about 250 pilots, a figure that will reach 500 by 2023.

The 3rd annual event brings together the private jet management and jet card provider’s over 500 employees to focus on safety

Jet Linx Aviation is grounding its fleet of over 100 private jets for a day once again as part of its third annual safety summit. By dedicating the entire day to advancing its rigorous safety standards the Omaha-based business aviation operator looks to highlight its focus on the subject.

The company claims to be the only air carrier in the United States to voluntarily halt operations for this type of event. The focus of the Safety Summit this year is safety culture, safety management, and how to identify potential hazards.  The day includes a special keynote session from Jim Hall, former National Transportation Safety Board chairman, on organizational contributing factors in aviation safety.
