National Airlines

Orlando, FL

Company Website

  • All pilots are home based (US) and are DH to work from an approved home airport. Schedules are 17 or 18 days on (30 or 31 day month) and 13 days off per month. Crew members DH to/from work on their available days not on days off. Pilots bid schedules in 3 month periods. Days off are bid as no flying is published in advance due to the business model. Because of this the flying on the available days is very fluid. Pay is bi-monthly but will change to monthly as of August 2022. After one year of service 14 Paid Time Off days (can be used as sick days or vacation days) are allotted annually. Classes of 12-14 pilots are planned monthly for the foreseeable future. 
  • PTO days used for vacations are bid in groups of 5 days and the vacation periods are awarded by seniority. The 13 monthly days off are attached to the 5 vacation days giving an 18 day vacation twice a year. 
  • National Airlines added 4 B747-400 aircraft to the fleet last year and plans to add additional 747s in 2022. The airline also plans to add 2 A330 in the first half of the year. National Airlines was nominated for 3 “Heroes of the Pandemic” Awards for 2021 for our efforts in transporting needed supplies around the globe.
