The Government Is Probably, Definitely Looking to Hire a Pilot for Area 51 Right Now

Travel Jobs

If you’re looking for a pilot job that’s a bit out of the ordinary, you might want to check out this job posting on engineering firm Aecom’s website. Janet Airlines, the unofficial name of the classified airline that serves the United States Air Force, is looking for a First Officer. Janet has its own terminal at Las Vegas airport, and is generally believed to fly from Area 51 and other classified areas, transporting cargo and passengers.

To become a First Officer on this classified plane, you’ll need at least 3,000 hours of flying experience, with a thousand of those hours as the commanding pilot, and another thousand in an aircraft powered by turbines. Perhaps most importantly, you’ll also need to qualify for a TS government security clearance. While you shouldn’t expect to be handed a pile of classified Area 51 documents on your first day, the transporting cargo and passengers may give you a unique insight into the mysterious area.

While the secret airline does not commonly post job openings to the public, this past January they were also looking for flight attendants. Given the unorthodox nature of the airline, however, it’s unclear exactly what that job description would entail.

Whether you’re a UFO enthusiast or a pilot looking for a new challenge, visit the Aecom website to submit your application.
