Thank you for your quick response Cosmo. I was a captain with Contour Airlines on the EMB 135 when this mess started and was furloughed so crossing my fingers.

Is some of you turbine PIC, and or are you typed in a CL350? Or typed in something other? Seemed like they emphasized the typed rating in the posting. Iím similar times, no rejection letter this time though. This summer, the TBNT came about 1 month after applying.

TBNT letters are always tough. These are different times in terms of what the hiring pool looks like.

Some things for you or others to think about.

1. Internal recommendations are very helpful. Doesnít guarantee an interview or job necessarily but if that is something one doesnít have, scrub your contact lists for folks you may have flown with to see if any landed at XO.


2. Check out Flightaware.com and visit a nearby FBO when an XOJET is RON or passing through. Chat with crew and pass along your interest. It maybe a nobody like me or it maybe one of recruiting pilots, check airman or someone you can at least ask and compare contact lists with to see if someone you know is at XO.

3. Send a nice note back to recruiting if you get a TBNT letter. Be respectful and if you remain interested and if so that you will be reapplying at the first opportunity.

4. Keep adding to your resume (like I need to say it, no insult intended), fly flawless, no busted checkrides, community volunteer work (probably not a factor in making initial interview cut but useful depending on companyís view of volunteer work.

5. Strike up conversation with an XOJET pilot in uniform whether commuting, FBO, hotels, etc. Same reason as note 2 above.

Good luck and fly safe.

3000TT, 1500hrs jet time at a regional, currently working 121.

TBNT

Itís funny (in a bad way). I went to the regionals because corporate flying always required higher mins than 121. Now that I have the hours to apply I find out that 121 pilots are unpalatable to companies like VistaJet, XO, etc.

There were several 121 regional pilots in my new hire and I know of others here also. That being said the app quality is probably higher than it has ever been, the times we live in.

Keep building hrs, progressing and as you know without having to say it, you are fortunate to have a flying gig...to me the fact you want to leave that world to come to XO (many here have that story) would make you an intriguing candidate to bring in and talk too...spoiler alert...not on hiring or interview team, sorry.

fly safe
