Love Your Job

Life as a pilot here is good. Our pilots enjoy their work and are valued for their professional skills and talent.

The perks of working at Porter

Walk to work

Enjoy an urban lifestyle and walk to work. Porter's hub is BBTCA, at the foot of Bathurst Street in downtown Toronto. Our unique airport means it's easier to get right to the flight deck and into the air, without delay.

Like who you work with

Porter is young at heart. It can feel pretty small in the flight deck at times. It's nice to enjoy the time you spend there, and the people you work with.

Competitive and rewarding

We offer great wages and benefits, including health and dental, income protection, retirement savings, and, of course, travel. You'll earn smiles from your passengers, your teammates, and most importantly, your friends and family.

The best of work-life balance

Our training standards are best in class and short-haul flights mean you’ll have more time at home.

The view never gets old

The view in and out of Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (BBTCA) is breathtaking, across from the beautiful Toronto skyline. Flying at the island requires discipline and skill; even our most experienced pilots embrace the challenge.
