Thank you for your interest in Avatar Airlines as a pilot. We plan to operate solely with the Boeing 747-400 to start up. Avatar plans initially a domestic-only operation (including Hawaii), perhaps extending to a couple of destinations in the Caribbean and Mexico later on. No long-haul flights over about 5 hours in our plan.
We are currently looking for 747-400 Type Rated pilots with a minimum of 10,000 flight hours. 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 – $378 per flight hour, X 78 hours average per month (about $353,814 per year) with First Officers at a rate of $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: you will be “required” to invest in Avatar Airlines private equity offering (see below). In addition, you must also be verified as an “accredited investor” (see definition below) and make a minimum investment of $75,000 (recommended at $150,000). Your seniority number will be based on the date your investment funds are received.
If you meet all of the above requirements please request an interview and we’ll schedule a Zoom video conference so we can get acquainted and answer any questions you might have.
