Default Flexjet hiring ?

Got word from my son, who is a Lear Capt. that Flexjet may be recalling and possibly hiring due to some early retirements. He doesn't know much more, since he is on vacation. Maybe someone else out there can confirm this. GOOD LUCK!!

They have a class of 4 this month. Not sure how deep into the 85 former Flexjet pilots they went to find them - but they did use the list.

Considering that there were over 100 people laid off in the past years or so,,and,,I do think they will give them the opportunity to return, I think it would be quite a long time before the call goes out for new hires.

Just talked to the son last night. Evidently there are going to be 4 more recalls offered. Must be kind of short handed since he likes to bid 12 duty day periods, but can only hold the 16 day duty periods. More $ but interferes with his other part time job.

Flexjet Reports Major Business Boost

Flexjet Reports Major Business Boost
Email this article |Print this article
By Russ Niles, Editor-in-Chief




Flexjet, the aircraft management arm of Bombardier, says it's hiring pilots to meet the demand of a huge increase in business. While airframe companies have continued to say demand for their products is flat, Flexjet says demand for its services is up 83 percent in the first quarter of 2013 over the same period in 2012. "With the economy picking up speed, owners who have been tentative since the downturn have started to gain more confidence and are taking more and more trips," said Flexjet President Deanna White.

Sales of fractional shares went up 108 percent and jet card sales jumped 48 percent. At Easter, White said flying hours reached levels not seen since 2007. And while OEMs may be waiting for the same effect, White says the uptick in her business mirrors the general improvement in the world economy. "Having the Dow Jones Industrial Average reach a record-breaking 15,000 points is not only a significant financial milestone, but also very good for our industry," she said. "People are ready to get back to business, and Flexjet takes them there."

Just wanting to breath a little life into the thread again and see if there is any new info out there. I see from the APC page that there were 4 recalls in April and in May. Is there any word on if they had any recalls for June or July? I am hoping for a new hire slot after the new year. Still have just a little time to spend in the Army before I am done.

More recalls starting in August and most likely more thereafter if business stays the way it is. As far as new-hires at the first of the year, highly unlikely they've made it through the list if furloughees at that point.
