CommutAir,a United Expressregional airline, today announced it is increasing its sign-on bonus to $50,000 for captain-qualified candidates.
“Our rapid growth continues to drive opportunities across our expanding operation with jet deliveries continuing,” said Joel Raymond, Chief Operating Officer. “That rapid growth has increased our demand for experienced leaders in the left seat— so much so that in addition to a $50,000 sign-on incentive, we are offering immediate upgrade slots for captain-eligible pilots.”
As one of the fastest-growing regional airlines, CommutAir appeals to pilots who want to move up the seniority list quickly. This also allows for shorter reserve times, so pilots are in the air, doing what they love, more often.
Qualified candidates entering captain training will see a total first-year benefits compensation package of up to $122,000 and the ability to move quickly to a mainline carrier.
Domiciles for this regional carrier are EWR and IAD. The industry continues to get better and better.
Dont forget about the upcoming RTAG convention at Fort Rucker, AL. I will share details as more become available, but there will be regional carrier recruisers in attendance as well as numerous regional and mainline pilots to answer questions.
