Top-tier pay gets better, pilot bonus increased to $22,000!

Our top-tier pilot pay just got ever better! New-hire pilots to ExpressJet will now receive a $22,000 sign-on bonus, plus an additional $5,000 bonus for an eligible type rating.

The first $5,000 of the bonus is paid during week one of employment, and the remaining amount, including the type-rating bonus (if eligible), is paid after successful completion of Initial Operating Experience.

With the increase, ExpressJet pilots can now earn upwards of $71,100 during their first year on the job!

ExpressJet is growing with new Embraer E175s, and we’re looking to hire more than 600 pilots in 2019! Pilots who interview can expect immediate class dates and to be complete with training and flying the line within approximately three months.

If you’re thinking about signing on, give us a shout. We’d love to talk.
