Default Quest Diagnostics?

Fellow pilots,

Looking for feedback on the company flight department?

I agree 100% about Quest being a good organization. We (Airnet) used to fly their cargo until Quest figured it would be more beneficial to take care of their transportation needs on their own. After I left Airnet, I looked into them. If the location were more favorable to my family, I wouldn't have thought twice.

I have no actual hard evidence whatsoever to back this up (I haven't researched them outside the flight dept), but I would bet that Quest Diagnostics is a solid organization all around.

Thanks. I agree If I lived closer it might have been a good job. 1.5 hour commute one way would bite having to do it every day.

When I was flying for SmithKline before the buyout we had a pilot sleep room at Reading Airport. I would guess that with there new hangar a new sleepover crewroom was added. I flew for them for 4 1/2 years and I lived in Philly at the time. That was in the mid 90s and all the old faces are still flying there. SmithKline was an awesome job with very challenging flying.

Baron B58's, Eclipse Jets, and (I think) PC-12's are based in RDG. PM AmericanSoldier for the inside scoop. He's a buddy of mine from back home...
