Saw their add on climb350 seems a little too good to be true. Might be one of those flybynight outfits. tread softly

Basically they are looking for people to work for free until the airline gets off the ground. You won't get the best talent in the industry like that. With the low fares and business plan they are proposing, how well do you think the pilots will get paid? Skybus would have been a luxury airline compared to these guys. No thanks!

there was a very funny thread out here a while back about this dump. notice the pic of the 747-400 is a 747-100 an dhtey phot shor (poorly) their name on the tail. their home page look like a Nigerian scam "name your bank" home page.
one of the bennefits for the employees listed is "toilets". yup,no porta pottys there , an actual toilet....what a luxury!!!.
this dump has been trying to get off the ground for a few years now. if they ask you to pony up some money so can be a "share holders" then it probably is a Nigerian scam.

In the past, moderators of APC have intervened and have contacted the so called officers starting an airline to prove validity. If there are any moderators/ Co founders reading this, would it be possible to work your magic so we may put this one to bed for good??? Family has been on and off the boards for a long time and I personally do not buy it.
