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. Our 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, we fly over 24,000 hours per year, holding a Gold AR/GUS status.
We 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, we will try to work with you to make it happen, but we are only able to fill positions that we have open.
We 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 our fleet. We believe the best way to learning something is to live and do it and not just read about it. We have redesigned our Ground-to-Flight line to reflect this philosophy. It is our intention that you will be able to apply these skills once you are flying for us.
Relocation: We allow 14-day complimentary housing to help transition to our network. Note: We will be unable to house individuals requiring Quarantine as we must take all care to protect our existing staff.
COVID-19: Please note: Quarantine periods or other mandated restrictions will be observed. Successful candidates must be prepared to follow government mandates for inter-provincial travel and pandemic procedures.
The preferred candidates should meet the following requirements: CPL, Group 1 IFR, 250 hrs TT, IATRA, however we are willing to take some candidates who have at least 200 hours and a Group 3 IFR.
You must be enthusiastic, dedicated and hard-working with excellent communication skills and customer service skills. Northern flying and/or military flight experience would be considered an asset.
