I just like the fact that I will live longer than the average cargo pilot. I thought about going cargo before NJ. That was until I saw how FDX and UPS prematurely aged my squadron mates. No thanks. But, to each his own.

Its interesting to see how far it will grow before it becomes large enough to attract the government, cut throat competition, a private equity outfit thats going to take it apart or get sold off .
.....so I am familiar with Netjets....


You could of fooled me.

....UPS was moving airfreight in the 30's

They actually began service in 1929 but suspended it due to Great Depression.

Resumed in 1954 and were flying in airliners until 1988 when they established their own airline, and are now the 9th largest. Yeah, I'm familiar as a shareholder.

UPS is a good stock, hold on to it. I will hold my BRKA until Warren dies, a truely brilliant man.
They actually owned the fleet prior to 88.

Really. I have recieved a great education about NetJets that could not be pulled from a financial statement.

You have fun now

Does anyone know if in addition to internal recs, a non internal LOR's could help at all. I have one from my boss where I worked line (and still do) for 5+ years highlighting my customer service experience. Figured it can't hurt.

Has anyone heard anything after the standard email of they have the app and will hear something?
Just wondering what to look for?
Also, any time line to it?
Thanks.

Hello to all,
This is my first post. I thought I’d pass on another data point regarding apps to NetJets and their response.
I applied August 11th and got “we are reviewing your application and will get back to you…” the next day.
Yesterday I got the email that a few others have received which read, “we are looking for someone that better fits our needs…” It was addressed to me (not Dear Applicant).
I’m obviously disappointed.
My background for what it’s worth:
25 years in the USAF (Retiring in a few months)
6000+ PIC multi engine jet (F-15E and A-10)
One internal Rec
No formal customer service experience although I tried to tie in some “customer service like” stuff I’ve done in the Air Force.

I’ve enjoyed reading the posts. Very informative as I look to start a second career.

Regards,
Jethro
