Have You Ever Heard of Janet Airlines? Because They’re Hiring

Have You Ever Heard of Janet Airlines? Because They’re Hiring
Sharon Hsu

Janet Airlines comprises of a fleet of 11 planes that operate under the United States Air Force. Founded in 1972 and based out of a private terminal at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, the highly secretive airline is believed to transport military personnel and serves the Nevada National Security Site among other classified locations.

The job posting might sound like something out of a science fiction novel or movie, but it is entirely real.

AECOM, the defense contractor that operates the United States Air Force’s Janet Airlines, is hiring a pilot to join its secretive fleet.

Nicknamed Janet for their call sign, which many believe to stand for “just another non-existent terminal,” the airline is known the distinctive red line along the bodies of their aircrafts, for primarily servicing the Nevada National Security Site, which includes Area 51 and the Tonapah Test Range, and little else.

The AECOM job posting requires a candidate to have an impressive range of skills and credentials, including a minimum of 3,000 fixed wing flying hours (at least 1,000 of which must be as pilot in command) and 300 in-seat hours within the last 5 years. Given the classified nature of the work, the pilot must of course also qualify for a government security clearance, and the listing notes preferred candidates will also have experience piloting high-performance jet aircrafts. Recent AECOM postings for flight attendants also lists security clearances as a must-have.

The fleet’s 11 vessels, which operate out of a private terminal at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, include 6 Boeing 737-66Ns and 5 smaller crafts.
