Default Flexjet Pilot Recalls

Anyone hear any news on pilot recalls at Flexjet for the busy season?

wait..... just for the busy season??? some of those guys found other jobs, what they're suppose quit, go fly for flexjet and get benched again three months later??

the other thing is what happens to your unemployment benefits if you're going back to work on a temp basis?

To make it more clear, with the up coming busy season does has anyone heard any news of pilot recalls at flexjet. UCLA, I am well aware of unemployment and finding other jobs. I am just looking for any credable intel on any pilot recall timeline.

Last I heard, and who really knows anyway, was that crew levels are set now until May 2010. Actually, "they" claim that staffing is 15 more than FG wants, but they are holding on to them.
If you listen to the daily brief line, some days are very, very busy, a few are slow. Demos are up, but so are charters and deadhead.
Some say that the schedulers are claiming they need more bodies, but I don't know if that is true.
What the effect of the swine flue will be, nobody knows. Could make a royal mess of things.
But, the company is operationaly profitable, so there may be a glint of hope, but I doubt you will see recalls until mid next year.
The truth lies somewhere out there, but it seems to change by the minute.

Mid next year? Wow, I hope that comes true. Some good news in this sector is way overdue.

If today is any indication,,,,,,

Hours, way up. Charters, more than normal, lots more than normal, while we still have a lot of planes uncrewed.

A good number of demos, but seems an issue to fill the need, a recoverery becomes a major issue. And still we have plans parked.

Oh, and deadhead is bad news. Getting worse by the day.

True brilliance at the top.

here is speculation from the line, i repeat specuation. my two cents worth which is actually .5 of a cent in this economy, so guys dont get your hopes up. things are picking up slowly and the staffing is correct for the airplanes that they have. there are very busy days, but before they bring people back they will go back to a 16 day line. however as flying increases here in the busy season, and by the time they might need more guys, and can get them back up to speed, it will be the slow season again. what seems logical is next summer maybe july or august. they are selling shares and doing plenty of demos so its just a matter of time. i know this stinks for everyone but things will turn soon. if ya look at the cycle in the industry about every 10 years things go bad for awhile and then its good good.

There is some news that they will be bringing around 6 planes back online either this fall or spring '11. Not sure why there is a big spread like that. I don't know if that means recalls or just make everyone there work 1-2 more days a month. Lets hope that recalls are in the near future.
