dream jobs don’t have to exist

only in your dreams

We were created with a love for people and a passion to serve

now hiring  certified flight instructors

Are you looking for a place where you can make a difference while working as a CFI?
Are you hoping to join a team where you are invested into…as you invest in others?

If the idea of getting paid to fly, while you help others realize their aviation dreams, sounds almost too good to be true, let’s talk! We’re looking for confident and motivated full-time Certified Flight Instructors to join our Part 141 Pilot Academy. Upon completing our new CFI training and orientation, you will provide flight training for customers in our rapidly-growing pilot academy, where CFIs have the opportunity to log up to 150 hours of billed instruction in a month. We purposefully work to grow and develop each CFI as they lead and train customers. This is your opportunity to join a hard-working, fun-loving team in aviation whose collective mission is whole-life impact.

What are we looking for?

  • Strong teaching skills. A great CFI is not only an excellent pilot, but is also an A+ teacher.
  • Motivation and positive attitude. Our most successful students are a direct result of highly-motivated CFIs, who bring their infectious attitude with them every day.
  • Strong organizational, analytical, and problem-solving skills. If you can get your ducks in a row, keep your fingers on the pulse, go over things with a fine-toothed comb, and kill two birds with one stone, all without letting the grass grow beneath your feet, we should definitely talk.
  • No drama. We fiercely protect our collaborative, mission-focused team culture. If you can’t help passing along whatever gossipy tidbit you just heard through the grapevine, please don’t apply!
  • Bonus for CFII, MEI, and/or Cirrus experience.

A few things about us:

  • Located smack-dab in the center of the country, we enjoy a good variety of weather (from sunny skies and warm temps, to clouds and snow); excellent examiner availability with low examiner fees; and some of the friendliest, most hardworking teammates and customers you’ll ever meet.
  • We have a BRAND NEW state-of-the-art flight training facility and large hangar at KLNK.
  • We only hire passionate, motivated people who have a heart to help us fulfill a greater purpose.
  • Our Missionis to inspire and enable aviation dreams—one relationship, one aircraft, and one flight at a time.
  • We believe that we were created with a love for people and a passion to serve.
  • We have fun and like to celebrate successes.

What will you be doing here?

  • Providing flight instruction in our technologically-advance fleet
  • Participating in regular team meetings where your input is desired and valued
  • Celebrating customer and personal successes

If this describes you, we want your resume! Enjoy excellent pay in a thriving aviation community and join a mission-minded team with strong core values. Apply now!
