NOW HIRING - SIC Hawker 800 Pilots - Birmingham, AL



The Second in Command is so designated as the SIC for a flight or series of flights in accordance to the principals and procedures as required by FAR Part 135. The SIC is responsible for the safe execution of flight duties to which he or she is assigned. The SIC will support the PIC in their final authority in the operation of the aircraft and exercises Operational Control on the Tier 2 level as described in Chapter 5 of the General Operations Manual.  The SIC must meet minimum qualifications as specified by Federal Aviation Regulation Part 135.245.

The fixed wing pilot schedules are a rotating 8 days on followed by 6 days off duty assignment. While on duty, pilots serve a 12-hour shift (or up to the maximum allowed under Part 135 if on mission) from home and must be able to meet that program’s specified call-out time in order to meet the planned launch time of a trip. Pilot shift assignments consist of either a day duty period or a night duty period and are scheduled the month prior by the Base Lead Pilot to provide pilots sufficient opportunity to prepare their rest cycle. Pilots can expect to serve the same duty period during their assigned 8 days on shift and then rotate to the next duty period during their next 8-day shift assignment. Changes to duty periods within a 8-day shift assignment are discouraged but can occur depending on local needs at the Base.
