These expanded incentives are a sign of Air Wisconsin's commitment to attract and retain experienced pilots and greatly compliment the other valuable benefits, which include Air Wisconsin's pilot 401(k) plan, work rules, and some of the best health insurance options in the entire industry.
"This enhanced bonus and retention program is designed to retain our current base of quality pilots and quickly build that base in order to meet our growth plans," said Bob Frisch, Air Wisconsin's Chief Operating Officer. "We expect to hire over 400 pilots in the next two years, and this program secures our ability to recruit and retain experienced pilots capable of quickly progressing from first officer to captain."
Air Wisconsin also offers a referral bonus of up to $4,000 to employees who refer new pilots.
