Desert Jet | Citation CJ3 First Officer

What’s it like to fly for Desert Jet?

90% of our flying is during the day and 100% of it is flying with awesome team members helping you create a WOW customer service experience for your passengers.  Our fleet consists of jet aircraft meticulously maintained by our own FAA Part 145 maintenance company.

Our average duty day is 8 hours, average number of hours flown monthly is 50, and average days of flying per month is 15.  However, for those that want more flight time, 70-80 hours per month is possible.

We will train and type successful candidates.  Opportunity exists for upgrade to captain as soon as your peers deem you ready.  Our co-pilots are mentored by our captains on a continual basis to prepare for captain upgrade.  Our IOE program and Captain's Board each provide continual mentoring and feedback loops to our co-pilots to ensure they have a successful upgrade. As an SIC, you will fly – A LOT!  And, you will continually be trained for that day when you upgrade to captain.  Our SICs are type-rated by Desert Jet, which means you gain valuable PIC experience on empty legs, when your captains deem you ready for the experience.
