The case for using contractors
At AB Aviation Services LLC, we strive to provide quality, safe, well-trained pilots to operations interested in maximizing profit and cash flow while retaining flexibility in staffing and scheduling to keep your aircraft flying.
Four weeks of pilots being unavailable for work due to two(2) weeks of training per year plus two(2) weeks of vacation per year at $1442.31/week for a total of $5769.23
Consider $116,033 /$700 = 165.76 days of my contract services on a Lear 45, and 154.71 days on a Lear 60. Yet when I am not contracted to fly, you incur zero expense, allowing your company to optimize staffing on a daily basis. Thus maximizing utilization, flexibility and cash flow for your company, and management clients.
