Skyborne Airline Academy and JSX, an award-winning U.S.-based Part 135 air carrier, have announced a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to supply First Officers for its Embraer ERJ fleet.

The MOU allows Skyborne to provide experienced former flight instructors the opportunity to fill First Officer positions at JSX, once they meet JSX’s strict hiring standards, including having achieved at least 1,000 total flight hours and 50 hours of multi-engine time. This agreement helps JSX source qualified pilots while giving Skyborne CFIs the opportunity to enrich their professional experience with a U.S. Part 135 air carrier.

Captain Ed Davidson, Managing Director, Skyborne Airline Academy, says: “Our agreement with JSX marks the first time Skyborne has partnered with a charter operator, and we’re delighted to be supporting the business aviation industry. With more people flying privately in the U.S. than ever before, relationships like this help address the demand for well-trained pilots. JSX is well-known in the industry for delivering exceptional service, so we are very pleased our CFIs will have another avenue of employment with a trusted partner that shares our drive for excellence.”

JSX owns a fleet of 77 Embraer ERJ jets and provides public charter service to a growing network of popular destinations across the United States. The agreement between JSX and Skyborne was effective from April 22, 2022.
