In 2007, Pilot bought Marathon Petroleum’s shares and entered a new partnership with CVC Capital Partner in 2008. Two years later, Pilot Travel Centers and Flying J Inc. entered an agreement, officially creating Pilot Flying J on July 1, 2010. Culture Pilot Flying J is a family-owned and operated business. While much has changed over the last fifty-plus years, Pilot Flying J stands by the same principles upon which it was founded decades ago: integrity, customer service and valuing team members.
