Currently hiring exclusively pilots that have required minimums to upgrade to Captain in the Saab (1,000 hours 121, PIC 135, etc.) due to expected quick upgrade requirements.

You must include all minimum requirements in the application, or your application will be rejected. Prefer listing aircraft flown with position and hours in each seat.  All applications are reviewed and follow-up questions are sent out if Flight Operations is interested in your qualification.  Following that, invitations for interviews are arranged in Honolulu that involve one on one interview and demonstrating non automated instrument flying skills and procedural knowledge.  The entire process will take about 2 hours.
