CL PILOTS Frequently Asked Questions

 

1.  What information can you provide us on your pilots?

All  of our pilots are captains and hold an Airline Transport Pilot (ATP)  certificate, are type rated in the appropriate Challenger Jet, have a  minimum of 7,500 hours total time and a minimum of 1,000 hours in the  Challenger. Our pilots receive recurrent training on an annual basis at  Flight Safety International or SimuFlite. All of our pilots hold a First  Class Medical certificate and a current Passport. No pilot has ever  been involved in an accident or an incident. We will provide you with  all appropriate documentation on each pilot including training records  and TSA clearances.

2.  On what continents have your pilots flown Challenger Jets?

North  America, South America, Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa. Our pilots  are very experienced in trans-oceanic crossings. We have recent  experience with operations in Africa, southeast Asia, Russia and the  former Soviet Republics, China and other countries in the Pacific Rim. 

3.  Are your pilots unemployed and doing this while they are looking for a full-time position?

No! Our  pilots probably fly more hours per month than the average corporate  pilot or charter pilot. Our pilots are seasoned professionals who enjoy  the variety of missions they fly and the changing locales they  visit. Our pilots are not looking for a job on your aircraft or with  your company and will never put you in the uncomfortable position of  asking you for a job. 

4.  What is your customer service philosophy?

Our  pilots understand that their job is to provide a safe flight and  superior service to the passengers. Our pilots are cordial and polite to  everyone and know the importance of privacy and will follow your  directions concerning passenger contact and requests. 

5.  What time periods are your pilots available for?

Our  pilots are available by the day, week or month. Just let us know what  your requirements are and we will work to meet your schedule. 

6.  How much do you charge for pilot services and how do you handle travel expenses?

We  have a two-tier rate system, domestic and international. Our base rate  is our daily rate. We offer lower rates for weekly and monthly terms.  Please call or e-mail us for rates. We  have no problem providing you with our rates, we just prefer not to  publish our rates on the internet. Travel expenses are charged at direct  cost. We use a local travel agency for booking airline tickets and  accomodations. The benefit of using this agency is that a travel agent  who is familiar with our operation is available to us 24 hours a day in  the event any changes need to be made to an itinerary.   

7.  How quickly can arrangements be made for pilot services?

We  can make next day arrangements for you in most situations. However we  recommend that you contact us now so that we are familiar with you and  your operation. By planning ahead we will both be ready when  you need our services.
