If flying is your passion and you consider safety and quality of life as your priorities, then they want you to join their team! North Star Air offers you the opportunity to succeed in a projected career path with “real-world” experience in their great Canadian North, considered “the best training in the world.”
North Star Air is a rapidly growing airline with over 250 dedicated employees providing passenger, charter and cargo service in a safe and reliable environment. Their airline services over 50 remote Northern Ontario, Northern Manitoba and Nunavut locations with a fleet of 16 aircraft, including Pilatus PC-12, Basler BT-67, Dash 8-100 and ATR-72-500F. With 50+ departures daily, they fly over 24,000 hours per year, holding a Gold AR/GUS status.
They are a 604, 703, 704, 705 Operator based in Thunder Bay, Ontario, with additional base locations in Pickle Lake, Red Lake, Kapuskasing, Sioux Lookout (all in Ontario) and Thompson, Manitoba. If you have a base preference, they will try to work with you to make it happen, but they are only able to fill positions that they have open.
They offer a competitive pay scale with a comprehensive benefits package and attractive scheduling. You will spend 6 to 12 months on the ground where your duties will include, but not limited to, Dispatch, Counter, Ramp Attendant, Fueler Crew, and other day-to-day operations. During this time you will learn all the skills needed to become a First Officer in their fleet. They believe the best way to learning something is to live and do it and not just read about it. They have redesigned their Ground-to-Flight line to reflect this philosophy. It is their intention that you will be able to apply these skills once you are flying for them.
