Business aviation hiring is expected to remain robust in 2023, as the industry continues to experience strong demand for industry professionals. Despite some potential economic uncertainties on the horizon, employers are expected to continue to encounter job candidates whose priorities are not simply higher compensation. “Pay is obviously the big driver” in looking for a new job, notes Jennifer Guthrie, CEO of In-Flight Crew Connections. “But second to that is quality of life, benefits and [the question of] is it a better company for them and their family?”

Those who work in business aviation seldom have a lot of free time away from their jobs. Nevertheless, it’s important to make time for opportunities that further professional development, as doing so often brings value far exceeding the time spent.
The need for qualified workers across business aviation is as strong as ever. While pay remains a top consideration, there still are really good people out there who are looking for compensation and culture, notes Jennifer Pickerel of Aviation Personnel International.
