Benefits
  • We feel that employees are able to add value to our company when they have the tools available to them to limit their day-to-day stressors that occur both inside and outside of the workplace. To that end, Double M Aviation offers fully paid medical insurance for our employees. We cover 100% of the monthly premium so it’s never a question of if the insurance is affordable 
  • We think everyone should have options. Our current healthcare plan has a Health Savings Account (HSA) option. Our employees are encouraged to contribute to this pre-tax plan directly from their weekly paycheck

We know each employee’s needs differ, so we offer additional healthcare options that can be added to the base healthcare plan such as coverage for dependents, dental, vision, etc.

Upon hire, employees are automatically enrolled in the Paid Time Off (PTO) program. The hours accrued during the initial month of employment are prorated according to the hire date and are immediately available for use.

We believe in planning for the future. To provide our employees with a clear path to a successful retirement, we participate in a Company Match 401k program. Employees become eligible to participate in this program at the end of their 90-day probationary period and are fully vested immediately.

Another way we can reduce an employee’s at-home stress is by providing uniforms with company-paid laundry service. At the end of each week employees bring in their unlaundered uniforms and receive a new set of uniforms, ready to wear for the upcoming week.

Our employees enjoy working in aviation but have at-home lives that benefit from a traditional schedule that allows them to be home with their families every night. This schedule is not the norm in aviation, so we are excited to be able to bring some consistency to our employee’s schedule through our scheduled work hours. 

At Double M, we prioritize merit-based wage increases over tenure-based ones. We believe that employees should be rewarded based on their ability to successfully complete assigned tasks, rather than solely on the duration of their employment. To ensure fairness and flexibility, we encourage wage reviews to be requested by an employee’s management team at any time, not limited to just once annually.

Employees receive an invitation to create an Amazon account with a company paid Amazon Prime membership that can be used for both business and personal purchases. Employees can also connect pre-existing Amazon accounts with the company paid Prime membership to enjoy the benefits of Prime that way as well.

The annual bonus program at Double M Aviation is designed to foster a culture of recognition and appreciation for our employees. We attribute our success to their dedication and hard work, and this program is our way of saying thank you and encouraging a long-lasting commitment to our shared goals.

  • Year 1 Bonus: 2% of total earnings
  • Year 2 Bonus: 3% of total earnings
  • Year 3 Bonus: 5% of total earnings
  • Year 4 Bonus: 7.5% of total earnings
  • Year 5 Bonus: 10% of total earnings (max cap)

We offer various paid and unpaid leave options to accommodate employees who require extended absences from the workplace. These policies are crafted to provide support to the employee while also enabling both the company and its employees to plan for the future effectively.

Company

Culture

To us, this means we recognize that our employees have a life outside of their job. Making a commitment to long term employment means we recognize that our employees go through different seasons in their lives. We make every effort to walk alongside our employees through these seasons and support them in every way we can.

We strongly believe that everyone wants to be proud of the company they are a part of. To this end, we strive to be the best at what we do. We have made a commitment to our customers and our employees that safety standards will be upheld and the end product will be exceptional. Employees can be proud to be part of the Double M family knowing the highest standards of aircraft safety are at the core of what we do.

We believe in giving back. To accomplish this, we have established the Double M Foundation, a non-profit organization through which we can give back to the local aviation community. We ask our employees to set aside one Saturday the month of April as a paid-work day to participate in our annual Fundraiser during the Sun ‘n Fun Fly-in. 

In the ever-changing business climate, the only way to succeed is to constantly evolve and grow. We are always exploring new avenues of growth that will provide growth opportunities to the business and our employees. Since 2015, we have expanded to include a charter company, Double M Charters, and established a non-profit organization, Double M Foundation.
