I dunno, if you put it up against 135 O2 regs, seven day tours, cleaning airplanes/lavs, loading bags, or flying into places like BLM or VNC on season it would be an interesting survey.

hey another question for you netjet folks, Whenever I send the application with my resume and all (fedex?), do I send my letters of recommendation and all that as well? I guess my question is, is it ok to just send a big packet of stuff? What other application tips do you guys have? Thanks!

Default getting to work--NetJets

Pilots can utilize any of 100 crew bases.

I see the above blurb in the benefits package PDF. Does this mean NetJets is responsible to get the crewmember from the domicile to the trip start point?

Or is the crewmember responsible for any commuting? (I'm thinking in the sense of "home-basing", where the company buys you a ticket if necessary.)

Forgive me if this is addressed on a different thread.

Thanks.
Zach

Zack,

The company will get you from your home base to your airplane to start the trip. It could be by airline, rental car, limo, etc. You will receive your travel info usually around 1800 the night before. Your responsibility is to be at your home base to start the tour (theoretically at 0001.)

On the last day, they are responsible to get you back to your home base by midnight. Otherwise, they have to pay you for 2 extended days (ie: big bucks).

When you airline, what kind of ticket do you get? First class or coach? Do you fly SW or just AA, CL etc? Saw a guy with a NETJETS hat on the other day going from CMH-LAS just wondering if he was a pilot or just wearing the hat.

The best answer to all of your questions is, "everything is random," but I will try to expand on it a little. You will get the cheapest ticket that is most convenient to the company. So typically on day one you will get the most direct flight that has you show after 8am (before 8am day one you make overtime). First class does happen once in a while if that is all that is left and they need you somewhere, also I think if they have you fly over 5 time zones you get first class so Europe or HI-east coast you will be in 1st. Going home they will (depending on if they need you) plan your last day based on the cheapest ticket. Being based in PBI they sometimes get a cheaper ticket to FLL and then they have me rent a car or take a limo to PBI. As far as the airline you get goes, it all depends on where you go, and where you live, if you live in CVG you will fly DL most of the time and if you live in BNA you will fly WN, and so fourth (there are a few airlines on a no-fly list that you will not fly on). In the past two years I have flown on DL, US, UA, NW, CO, AA, WN, and AT. I am a Silver Medallion on Delta and coach middle seat on the others. As far as the guy going to LAS with the hat, who knows, they gave us a box of hats and shirts last Christmas, so my neighbors have them, its anyones guess who it was. Hope this helps.

I'm not going to speculate on your first question because all it would be is a guess.....

As for the second question, you retain longevity when upgrading. If you upgrade during your 4th year with the company (on the 5th year payscale) you would start at 5th year Captain pay.

Under the old contract, pay for larger aircraft (GIV/V and Falcon 2000EZ) used to be based upon "time in program" but that no longer exists.

Thanks, Omaha; that's what I wanted to hear.
