Chief pilot is John Joyce when I last called 2 yrs ago. 845-567-7410.
169 Route 17K
Newburgh, NY 12550.

I gained this info my calling the main reception desk at G.E. and asking for their Flight Dept. I have found this technique although dump, works with many companies with flight depts.

I've met Mr. Joyce and have been on the company BBJ. Amazing airplane!! He told me he made less than an airline 737 captain but that the job is very stable (obviously). I'm sure you get stock options and stuff too.

He also told me they do a lot of international travel, especially to Europe.

I'd just be guessing here, but I'm confident that he makes just under a 10+ year 737 captain at the highest paying airline. I'm sure he's comfortable.

I heard they are selling the BBJ, anyone know if this is true? Are they replacing it?

Default Ge

Do some checking on who the new chief pilot is before sending your info in. I fly a BBJ, only for another couple of trips for another corporate operator. The word is that their has been a corporate reshuffle of some of the top guys in the flight department, top guys got fired and were replaced from the outside. That usually means and makes trouble for the troops. One of the 73's appears to be on the market. I'm not sure if its getting replaced or not.

I've gone to training with some of the different guys flying the 73 from GE. It appears to be a pretty senior ride. From what the guys said during training was that the new hires really are assigned to airplanes like the challengers.

I heard at the NBAA Regional Forum in HPN that the BBJ was sold, for 10 million more than they paid for it.

They also took delivery of a Global, not sure which model.

Yes they are, it's listed in the major corporate airplane for sale magazines.

"From what the guys said during training was that the new hires really are assigned to airplanes like the challengers."

That's a bummer...

I am over in Geneva at Ebase right now. The BBJ that GE sold was to the Aero Toy Store. Aero Toy Store re-sold the BBJ on the first day of the show this week (Tuesday morning).

They sold it to an investment company out of FLL. I just talked to one of the new pilots in SFO early this week. Really nice fella.
