What are the top factors or features customers care about when flying private? 

The top factors customers care about when flying are the safety of our aircraft and pilot training.

Safety of Aircraft

Airshare is an FAA-certified provider of complete jet aircraft maintenance. Our maintenance team provides full-service aircraft care, including routine inspections, repairs, avionics installation, and more. This means our team performs regular maintenance inspections to ensure our aircraft are safe to operate and all systems are in good working order. These inspections are conducted regularly to address possible failures before they become an issue.

Pilot Training

Airshare pilots, both PICs and SICs, require extensive training. To be eligible for hire, our pilots must have minimum hour requirements, ATP multi-engine rating, a first-class medical certificate, and an FCC license. Once hired, we request pilots’ PRIA Records and require a drug screen. If they pass, pilots go through online training, initial indoctrination training, simulator training, and then must complete and pass our Initial Experience Program (IEP). If successful, the pilot will then be released to the line. All Airshare pilots must complete recurrent training every six months.

Airshare is committed to safety and quality as core values as an organizational priority. We shall persistently demonstrate and measure high levels of safety consciousness in our daily operations.

How does Airshare keep pilots and other crewmembers safe?

All Airshare personnel are expected to continuously take an active role in identifying and mitigating hazards and risks pertinent to the operation. Each employee is personally responsible for performing their duties in a manner that gives primary concern to the safety of passengers, their safety, and the safety of fellow employees and equipment entrusted to their care.

Airshare crewmembers shall adhere to strict professional discipline and utilize the various layers of protection afforded to them through Company Policy/SOP, Manufacturer Policy AFM/POH, Federal Regulations, and the Company SMS. Each of these layers of protection provides various components of limitations, and collectively they provide risk mitigation to the operation. The crewmember must understand and respect their personal limitations, aircraft limitations, and environmental limitations.
