Default BBJ operators?

Does anyone know of an operation that operates BBJs and might be hiring?

If you're ex-UAL, DAL, or Continental the Beanie Baby guy, Ty Warner, looks for contract BBJ pilots all time, and gives prescience to military pilots, and previous heavily experienced 737 guys first... You won't find this on the web in too many places, but he flys out of KDPA, and tail number is N888TY.

There aren't many BBJ's in the US...

You'd probably have more luck looking abroad.

Wayne Huizenga has a BBJ out of FLL. Goes nicely with his G-V and the Dolphins paint jobs match.
Not sure of hiring though.

I think he got rid of at least the BBJ once he sold the dolphins. It was a nice paint job though.

I talked to three of his pilots in Tampa 6 months ago and it was being sold to a British guy. They are down to two gulf streams and I think one pilot was getting ready to retire.

In 2008 he sold 50 percent and another 45 in 2009. But I though I saw the BBJ for sale a few years ago, dolphin logo and all. Guess he didnt sell it then...

At KFLL, there is a whilte BBJ with a blue stripe across the side, and up the tail..... it's over near the GA ramp. Saw it a couple days ago taking the airport shuttle to the 'port... Better try and get on with something like Netjets, or ExecJet or whatever one of those charter companies have a BBJ laying around. I can't see you flying that much though... Not for an outrageous whateverthehell it costs to fly those things...

NetJets doesn't have BBJ's anymore. Some Vegas casinos still operate them... I think MGM and Venetian still have them.
