FedEx Feeder Flight Operations

Our Cargo operations are supported by FedEx and their extensive support system. This improves pilot QOL by providing reserved training dates at Flight Safety International, cargo loading crews, and timely maintenance. In addition, we provide pilots with an electronic flight bag and schedule with work life balance in mind. We fly routs that allow more time at home than passenger airlines. We have CASS and known crewmember privileges to supplement our other flight benefits. We are also part of the Purple Runway FedEx Pathways Program.
