I donít know about a Learjet iaero has 2 hawkers in Miami. That registration says international services aviation.

World Atlantic has a Learjet, if they still have it.

anyone think it's a conflict of interest for Amos to be part of the iAero group, and be an owner in it's competition?

Constant unheeded safety allegations and complaints to the Dir. Safety that nothing was done about. There was a time when Pilots on the line said that if you wanted a safety concern noticed, you needed to file an ASAP, or contact the FAA hotline. Even that route was corrupted by the village idiot. But we all know where it comes from. Management culture starts at the top.
Unfortunately, as most of the recent post shows in vivid colors, Same old *******T, different day.
We need to clean our own house. It smells just as bad.

In MIA just lack of experience from mechanics. When I know more about components and doing the bite test you got an issue. Thatís how we get our butt handed in Mia.

Even then a self test doesnít always show the issue or can be replicated on the ground. These dinosaurs are worked hard and each have their own gremlins. The extra -400s I think have the most issues, they seem to be mostly electrical for some reason since we got them.

Iíve written up a pack about 4 times and every time they did something different. About the 5th time they just did a massive change out of the packs.

We throw buku parts at acft trying to troubleshoot. Most of the time it works. Other times itíll persist but only inflight.
THIS IS WHAT MEXI is talking about. His glass house. Before he started throwing stones.

I do believe I did not give my consent to be recorded when I called into Benefits two weeks ago to confirm my Short Term Disability paperwork. HIPPA is being violated in all these cases. Payroll Manager, Tina Brannock who abruptly resigned from Swift, left due to the fact she did not want her signature on any payroll records as money is being stolen by the leadership team there. Tina further states Brandon uses all laptops provided to employees to remotely dial into the laptop and access information. He has been known to activate both the camera on the laptop and speaks so he can hear what is taking place in the privacy of your home. Payroll is a mess and Brandon refuses along with Boris to address the various coding issues in Blue 1. Tina has been asked on numerous occasions to falsify payroll records. She also has evidence to support Swift knowingly violated the CARES ACT funding by laying off several employees after receipt of the funds. There is currently no one in HR and no one heading up the Payroll Dept. Spoke with Teresa, and she stated they asked her to stay on after paying her additional severance to stay on. Makes you wonder why an entire HR dept walked out? Is it due to finding violations of way too many laws? If you are a pilot or any employee who has been provided with a company laptop from Swift Air, ensure you completely shut it down and close it. This is an invasion of privacy into my home. Federal wire tapping and taping phone calls coming into two critical department such as payroll and HR violates the employee's right to privacy and confidentiality. Be very aware with your company assets.
OH, yes. Then there was this. This is what some current and some former employees, who felt mistreated thought about our own company management. But Mexi wanted to throw stones at others before doing something different in his own house.

Default The truth, as written by others

On the other thread about the SWIFT / I AERO, Miamitmster said that I was telling lies about the company. So I urge him, and anyone thinking about working for this this place to read this, and the other 2 threads. I suspect all of what's written by former, and CURRENT employees may shed some disinfecting light on who is lying.

Well, it seems they let the Fox back into the Hen house, and guess what.
He's back at it again.
When will they learn......
But then again if you need dirty work done, you call someone who has done it before, and is willing to do it again.
