Talking Citation Shares

Questions:

Are customers allowed to smoke during flight?

If so does the smoke make its way up to the cockpit; is it noticeable?

Are their cockpit doors, curtains..etc?

Will CS ever add the Citation X to it's fleet?

Does it matter what you get your ATP in? " Piston vs Jet"

The reason I ask is my time is in the CRJ and I do not want to hang around for another 4 years waiting on an upgrade so I plan on doing the All ATP's route in the Seminole in the next couple of months. I almost have the minimums but no ATP. Is the ATP a hard minimum or is only the written accepted?

Thanks Again and Good Flying!

I got my ATP in a Seminole and had loads of SIC Jet time, but no turbine PIC. I was hired and am awaiting a class start. I also did the weekend course at ALL ATPS.

My guess would be that if it says ATP, they want an ATP. If you are flying an RJ and almost have ATP mins, you should probably be able to get the ATP within a few months.

NO SMOKING on CS aircraft! Period!

No plans for the X.

ATP-MEL is all that is written on the certificate. Mine was in a Seneca I many moons ago.


Good luck and be persistent if you really want the position.

Does the 7 on 7 off start on a particular day? Do you ever get weekends off?

All 7/7 schedules start during the week. The specific fleet type drives which day of the week you start. Every other weekend is off with this arrangement.

Hey EXTW,

Are you normally gone all 7 days or does it depend on the type of aircraft you are on? Any day trips at all within those 7 on? Thanks.
