The FAA has standards that must be met for pilots, and pilots need to have done 1000 to 1500 flight hours of flight experience before being able to fly charter jets, or where fractional operators are involved. Often 2500 hours is required for fractional operations. These are operations where there are multiple owners of aircraft which command there use.
A number of charter companies use pilots of minimal flight experience as this can save money, as the more experienced a pilot is the higher the wage. Other charter companies use pilots with many hours of flying experience.
