When the COVID-19 related shut downs started happening, we froze hiring. We now have two new INDOC classes next month. I think these classes were previously scheduled, but postponed. I havenít heard if any other classes will be planned for the near future. We likely wonít see the same amount of attrition for a while.

The positions on the website ARE for openings in the Global and CL300 on the XO side. Here is the link to both. Good luck. I believe the number per aircraft is pretty small 1-3 per airplane I believe.

hope that helps

Correction...the position is for a CL350, Vista Jet operations and work rules.

My apologies for the confusion

Just want to clarify, looks like both vista and xojet have postings now? One says crew resources, and one says xojet aviation?

Also, if anyone knows, do they want pic listed to only include aircraft listed pic, or pic from dual, or also manipulate of flight controls?

The job postings are for future positions but no active positions. Submission of a resume/app allows the company to review and have resumes on file so positions can be filled as they become needed.

If interested I would submit the app. When the hiring freeze is lifted Iím sure myself or others will post on APC to keep folks up to speed. Sorry for any confusion.

As for your other question, can you provide a little more clarity as to your question?

ďAlso, if anyone knows, do they want pic listed to only include aircraft listed pic, or pic from dual, or also manipulate of flight controls?Ē

I will do some more research. Thanks

Thanks for the response!
Apologize for the lack of clarity. Some places only want to see "signed for the aircraft" pic, while others include dual in their desired totals, or repo type flights as long as pic rated, even if both pilots were captain. Juts wanting to have the correct version for my application.

I saw that for upgrade xo wants 150 pic in type, and they have you get that by being appropriate typed and count your actual flight controls time for it, so just wasn't sure on the time prior to xo.

Thanks again!

Found in a Forbes article

Vista Global Holdingsí XOJET Aviation, the third biggest U.S. charter operator by flight hours, said it is adding four super midsize jets to its 43 Challenger 300s and Citation Xs. Plans call for 20 more, according to a spokesperson.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/douggol.../#2d95b3251fb0

Flights increasing. Bodes well for future hiring but no announcement.

Default Good News XOJET Hiring

Heard from company sources hiring has opened for Pilot positions. No info on how many but non company sources such as Forbes has quotes from company spokespersons that 4 aircraft are being added to our fleet.

I know of one new X being added next week but not sure if that is one of the 4 or not.

Regardless, more airplanes are being added. BTW , some people are departing for other jobs so while attrition is way down, there are occasional departures for various reasons/positions.

The application process is through Jobvite located here https://jobs.jobvite.com/xojet/jobs/category?c=Pilots

The link to apply is at the upper right side of the page.

Former XO pilots can reapply through the same process.

Donít know how many applications are on file but assume the number is quite large considering the times.

Good luck!
