Avatar Airlines plans to operate Boeing 747-400s in a domestic-only operation (including Hawaii) adding a couple of destinations in the Caribbean and Mexico at a later date with no flights much over about 5 hours in our plan.
Avatar is looking for experience Captains with B747-400, 777 or 787 type ratings with approximately10,000 flight hours or more. This would require a USA FAA issued Airline Transport Pilot certificate, Class I Medical certificate, and legal status to work in the USA (citizen, work visa, etc). Those with similar aircraft experience will likely be considered for copilot positions to begin.
Consistent with Avatar’s progressive culture, line holder pilots will be paid as follows: Captains – up to $378 per flight hour, X 78 hours average per month (about $353,814 per year) with First Officers at a rate of up to $257.78 per flight hour, X 78 hours average per month (about $242,237 per year) along with sharing in all of the company benefits. Reserve pilots would be paid the same hourly rates but at 70-74 average hours per month guarantee.
Please note: Although Avatar requires its pilots to invest in its private equity offering it should not be looked upon as a fee for employment, but rather an opportunity to own a piece of a new and better airline, one that plans to be debt free, well capitalized, profitable and admired by the public.
