Career Path

PlaneSense, Inc. is proud to offer a favorable career path and hire from within. We have always upgraded to PC-12 Captain, Instructor Pilot, and Check Airman based on merit, not seniority. Once a pilot has the minimum number of flight hours required by FAA regulation to be a PIC (1500 hours), the upgrade will depend on several factors including: total PC-12 time, overall performance and professionalism, an upgrade test, and an evaluation training period. MEL Commercial, ATP, and CTP course opportunities are provided as needed.

PC-12 crew members  may transition into the Jet Flight Operations based on seniority. PlaneSense has a growing fleet of Nextant 400XTi jets and will soon have six Pilatus PC-24 jets.
