Has anyone heard of or have any info (pay rates) about Travel Management LTD based out of Elkhart, Indiana? APC doesn't have them listed under fractional or under charter. I talked to one of their pilots that said they work two weeks on two weeks off. Maybe APC can start add them to the list of charter/fractionals. They fly Beach Jets and Hawkers.

A friend of mine just got laid off from TM right in the middle of his tour. He was very senior with the company but on the wrong aircraft. They didn't slide him into a different jet. So much for seniority and loyalty.

Anyone know the salary ranges? FOs and Capts? I presume upgrade could take a long while for a newhire. One positive is that pilots are homebased from what I hear...
Any idea what aircraft type the latest newhires would start on? I would assume the Beechjet since the fleet is almost all Beechjet now. Wouldn't mind jumping into one of those new Hawkers...

He was laid off from the Citation. They have a lot of Beechjets and were supposed to be getting Hawkers. The story kept changing so he never knew what planes were getting parked and what planes were getting bought or kept. Either way......seniority didn't apply. The guys were simply sent packing. They weren't trained for the other jets. Good luck.

they use to pay 40k for FOs and 60k for CA;s ... starting pay........

That seams a little low i would think. But then again, we go for it. I would hope there is some height to the pay scale as well but then again it doesn't do you any good if there is no loyalty to seniority. My company recently rolled a few head and 'convinced' the most senior pilot into retiring.

Something else to think about. I was second to least senior but what is the point of getting rid of me. I wouldn't save them much money at all so they would have to cut a few more jobs if they just cut the bottom.

I had a friend of mine try to get me a job there about a year ago and I never heard a word from the CP. I did talk to some TMC pilots around that time and they were worried that they were very slow business wise but the owner kept buying more and more Jets.
Thats all rumors though. I do know that the starting salary was 45K for an FO in the BeechJet.
