Itís not happening at all in 2024 but if the rest of the crybabies leave with me in January you can bet itíll be 2031.

Scheduling runs you into fatiguing almost daily, you rarely get an awesome layover and/or enough time to enjoy the layover, and when the airline industry sees concessions is the only time NJA pays better. Don't leave NJA to chase upgrades or contracts at a particular airline. You have to be built for the NJA lifestyle. Some people are, and some people aren't. I wasn't. FDP masked a lot of issues because you can solve a lot with money. Now that the airlines are all paying top dollar, and upgrades are down, it makes NJA feel pretty behind the eightball when the honeymoon of FDP wears off and you realized they simply threw money at you to ignore the plaguing issues that have never gone away, and never will. Scheduling will always be the way it is, the dynamic nature of NJA will never change. If you love flying private jets to random places and can make the lifestyle, pay, and benefits work, then awesome.
It sounds like you have had personal experiences and frustrations with your job at NetJets (NJA). Job satisfaction can vary among individuals, and it's important to find a career that aligns with your personal preferences and priorities. The aviation industry, like any other, can have its ups and downs, and different companies may have different challenges and perks. It's crucial to assess your own priorities and find a job that suits your needs and brings you fulfillment.

I am one of the ďcrybabiesĒ that actually left NJs after being there for about a decade (including the five years I was furloughed). I realized once the 2015 contract came out that NJs would never compare to the majors, so I did something about it. I still think NJs was a fun job, but why would I settle for less pay and retirement for doing more work? It just depends on what your life goals are I guess. Now Iím a captain for Hawaiian Airlines with much better pay and QOL. To each his ownÖ

Default Contract

I'm considering applying at NJ despite OP's warning. I have to assume there is a contract since they're gonna buy a type rating...how long must you stay there to fulfill the contract?

Do you mean like a training agreement? We donít do that here.

No there isnít. I think as a pilot I would honor at least a year. Let them get some money back out of that type. But lots of people leave for different reasons.

Iíve always felt that anytime there is a training contract or bond that the company is forcing people to stay rather than hiring the right person and provide the right environment for them to want to stay.

Itís a two way street.

NetJets is the only Fractional I'm aware of that has a Union. I don't think the company could impose a training contract without negotiation with the Union.

That is correct. We had one from late Feb 2000 until 2005 when we wrote it into the CBA that it is not allowed. I highly doubt you would ever see one allowed again.

We are having new hires not even last a year. If a Legacy carrier calls, run and don't look back. Even if our pay goes up to Delta wages, just the nature of 135 our work rules will always lag or stink relative to a Legacy carrier once you hold a line.

I dont believe our pay will ever go up to Delta/United wages. Never.
