We are currently seeking full-time Survey Pilots to conduct survey operations in high performance Cessna 200/300 series aircraft at our headquarters in Philadelphia, PA. [This position requires residence or relocation to Philadelphia, PA area]

An ideal Keystone Aerial Survey Pilot will not only be able to fly safely and efficiently but be willing and able to learn and apply all the concepts, procedures and tasks related to aerial surveying. Pilots can expect to fly at least 300-500 hours per year and travel as necessary for the company. Pilot non-flying duties include; preparing/coordinating missions, aircraft cleaning/organizing, training, and other tasks as assigned by Flight Department management.

Why work for Keystone?

We offer an opportunity for pilots to utilize all their skills: cross country, IFR, high altitude, low altitude, operating in all airspace, etc. Keystone’s fleet consists only of high performance aircraft, mostly multi-engine. Our projects may require our crews to travel extensively anywhere around the United States.

In this position, pilots will be able to apply their intelligence in addition to their piloting skills to accomplish something more challenging than ‘point A to point B’ flying. We are a thriving, growing organization. This is no ordinary Part 91 job – it offers exciting flying opportunities, but involves a LOT more than flying. We are not just looking for great pilots, we are looking for great pilots who can become great survey pilots.
