Seems odds that a department THAT big wouldn't look within to fill a position like that...

What happened to the person previously in that job. Retire, take another job, "get retired"?

Two positions divided into three. Internal candidates may apply as well. So far, haven't heard of anyone applying.

You fly for Walmart Zap?

How many airplanes and what type? I'm not looking just wondering

We have around 15 Learjets (40/45), a G650, and a Global Express in the US.

WM Canada has a Learjet 45

WM Central America has a Learjet 31a

WM Brazil has a Learjet 35

I think you should apply Zap and then hire me to fill your old spot. :)

Neither of those are good ideas! ;-)

•Airframs and Powerplant (A&P) licensure with Inspector Authorization (IA).
If a mis-spelling/typo will get a resume thrown in the trash, does the same apply to a job announcement? ;)

Sounds like a good job.

We have a couple guys who worked at stores and distribution centers in high school and now fly. Probably the most successful is a local boy who pushed shopping carts and now he's a Global Express Captain. Worked here his whole life.

Another worked at a distribution center in college, went to Comair academy, came back, and worked here ever since. He just transitioned to the G650 a few months ago.

Wish I didn't still have a year left on my Active Duty Service Committment because I would have liked to apply. I guess I should start working on flying certifications because it looks like it helps with these sort of jobs. This is like exactly what I'm looking for when I get out. Any idea on salary range?
