Anyone on the forums currently flying for these guys? If so, had a few questions:

How does the QOL compare to AD?

Do guys also fly for the ANG / airlines, or is this a full time gig?

Looks like Draken has a location in France (Nimes), is this primarily retired NATO pilots?

Appreciate an PMs as well on the subject. Thanks!

Did you see this thread?

I'm former ATAC. Don't know anything about Draken.

There is a small cadre of fun-time guys - most are part-timers.
Most are airline types who make themselves available for periods of times during the month for use. Sometimes you get used - sometimes you don't.
QOL? It is like a home-based fractional. They airline you to where you need to be. You stay in Hilton/Marriott style hotels. You get per diem.
