I would stay away for now. Plenty of other operators out there to choose from.

I interviewed here more than a year ago. I was super excited about the job. However at the completion of the interview I was offered the position, and I’ve never had that happen ever in professional aviation. Usually there’s at least a few days wait before a phone call or an email. I was very surprised. I then asked the hiring folks who were meeting with me for a day or so to “think it over” and I was met with immediate pressure to accept the job right then.

I ended up turning it down just from how bizzare the experience was. I wasn’t exactly a super competitive applicant (this was for a PIC position) so all I could think in my head was “Why do you need me so bad”?

Best of luck to all the pilots here to find greener pastures.

At the Women in Aviation Conference, American Airlines gave out 52 CJO's after a 25 minute in-person interview. These days, they figure tat you have 3 or 4 other offers, so they were just trying to get you before someone else did. Or maybe, you were just that good...

Default Please tell me the rumor is not true..

Hey all,

I just heard a VERY bad rumor that 50 pilots were furloughed from Jet It today.. I don't know if this is true or not, but I certainly hope not. When just one pilot loses, we all lose. Can anyone confirm this?

If it is true, there are a ton of companies hiring right now, including FlyExclusive. We are hiring Direct Entry Captains, no type required and are right down the road from GSO in ISO. Not to be an opportunist, but after 5 furloughs under my belt, I hate to see a pilot on the street anywhere as I know how painful it can be.

Sorry - yes you’re correct and I’m pretty familiar with the 121 process these days. I suppose I was referring more to corporate aviation positions where most of my work has been. In all my experience I’ve never been pressured to accept a job or been offered a job on the same day on completion of an interview in part 91 or 135 - except with JetIt. Combine this with a really strange vibe I got in the interview process, I just couldn’t move forward with it. I can’t really describe how much it felt like I was buying a used car and the salesman was blocking the door from me trying to leave.

This post aged well. According to an article, owners are ****ed. Questioning why phenoms are also grounded. There’s something strange that’s not public. It’s almost like they saw the writing on the wall financially and management used this as a reason to shut down because they are bankrupt.

See: Emery Worldwide Airlines, May 2001. It happens.
