Why Carson Air?
Does the thought of living out of a suitcase and being away from your home and loved ones for half of your life not appeal to you? Does being herded through airport terminals/security, sleeping in hotels, and constantly eating on the road for the rest of your career not sound good either? Carson Air flight crews and AME’s know their schedule well in advance and are all based in the beautiful province of British Columbia, providing a work-life balance rarely experienced in the aviation industry.
We provide a great and flexible schedule, so our team members don’t miss any important moments in their personal lives!
Premium Aviation Work Schedules
Our Medevac Pilots typically work a 4 days ON / 4 days OFF schedule.
Our AMEs typically work a 5 days ON / 4 days OFF schedule.
Carson Air supports a large fleet of aircraft which include spare aircraft, allowing maintenance personnel the time they need to ensure quality in their work. This also affords a better opportunity to complete the work during a scheduled shift therefore maintaining that all important work/life balance.
For maintenance, Carson Air provides factory approved technical training in addition to ongoing in-house advancement training within the organization. For medevac pilots, flight training is provided in advanced simulators to ensure the highest level of training and safety.
If you have desires to help in training, mentoring, procedure development, etc…. and want to be more than just a pilot or an AME, we embrace that, and encourage our people to take on additional roles and help drive and lead the company! You’re not a number here – you are part of the team!

Stability & Experience
By predominantly providing essential services to residents in Western Canada, Carson Air is exceptionally well positioned to remain stable and healthy during periods of uncertainty in the aviation industry. During the recent COVID-19 pandemic, many air operators were downsizing their workforce while Carson Air was expanding operations in health and cargo operations, helping the citizens of BC and beyond. During that time, we were able to provide jobs back to some of our previous hard working team members who had previously left to larger air operators.
