Nothing contributes more to your overall safety than a professional in the cockpit.
That's why Flight Options® recruits and retains the best pilots in the industry, bar none.
Through highly selective recruitment and training programs, our pilots and crew provide an unsurpassed level of commitment, expertise, professionalism and skill which meets, and often exceeds, the exacting standards of the Federal Aviation Regulation Part 135. Type-rated by the FAA, Flight Options’ pilots complete two annual training events – one in a flight simulator and one in-aircraft with a FAA certified check airman.
The combined experience of the crew members onboard your Flight Options flight averages over 25 years, and over 20,000 flight hours. Since Flight Options inception, our pilots have logged over 1.2 million hours of flight time with over 900,000 legs flown. Having flown over 16,000 legs into and out of difficult terrain such as Aspen,CO, the highly experienced crew members aboard your Flight Options aircraft are ready to take on any mission.
Each Flight Options pilot has an average of over 10,000 hours of flight time and is type rated by the FAA. Each has an Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) classification, is trained to the exacting standards of Federal Aviation Regulation Part 135, and undergoes a comprehensive training program at CAE SimuFlite, the world's largest training facility. In addition, our crews utilize our specially designed online supplemental ground training system for additional training on specific processes and procedures.
Each Flight Options aircraft is operated by two type-rated pilots in the cockpit. In addition to their extensive flight time, crew members complete annual simulator training and each Pilot-in-command completes a biannual practical-check ride in their aircraft. Because of our industry-leading standards and top-of-the-line training programs, we have the safest and most professional pilots in the industry.
