TMC’s commitment to the safety and security of every client is reflected in our fleet's safety record, which is among the highest in the industry. As a participant of the FAA’s Safety Management System Pilot Project, we send a clear message that we are committed to investing any resources necessary to ensure the safety of our passengers and employees.
Pilot Training and Certification
In order to attract and retain a team of highly skilled, experienced crewmembers from every area of the aviation industry, we strive to provide an outstanding training experience, top-of-the-line equipment and competitive compensation packages.
Our pilots have an average of 8,000 flight hours. Newly hired crewmembers must satisfy strict performance standards beginning with, initial indoctrination, full motion level “D” flight simulator training, and a comprehensive initial operating experience program with a qualified standards captain. Captains and first officers annually participate in FlightSafety International recurrent flight simulator training, company indoctrination, and captains must pass a check-ride in their assigned aircraft type every six months. We are proud to say our pilots operate under strict FAA guidelines as well as published company standard operating procedures to ensure a safe and predictable flight experience.
