[QUOTE=Mox Nix;2712233]Not seniority-based, it's more specific to the aircraft you're assigned to... meaning tail #, not type. You're normally tied to one specific tail, and you coordinate your scheduled OFF days among the other pilot(s) assigned to that airplane. Some planes are crewed with 3 pilots, some are crewed with just 2. That depends on the contract that the company has with the aircraft owner. Jet Linx doesn't have their own fleet, they do aircraft management for airplane owners.

Well said, Mox Nix. Jetlinx has made some major improvements over the last two years to improve pilot retention, but at the end of the day, your owner has a lot to do with your QOL. They take safety and rest very seriously (basically fly 91 with the same rest as 135), but if your owner wants a lot of charter, they'll be aggressive scheduling it. Life will be much easier if your owner buys a 3-pilot crew (and they all stick around). That said, I flew it both ways (3 and 2-pilot), and I averaged 75% of the days on standby; 50% of the days flying; and 25% of the days RON. Your mileage can (and will) vary.

There is no pay scale. It is all negotiated.

When I first started at Jetlinx the days off were 5 days a month and the 401k was 2% of 6%. Not even sure what that means

Now it is 8 hard days and 6% match if 401 k. So the company realized that they need to make some changes. They still need to keep improving this but where they run into a problem is they do not own a single airplane.

If they were to increase hard days off, they would have to tell the owners to increase the amount of crew members for their airplanes. Thus increasing the cost of the owners. The aircraft owners pay for all pilots salaries, training, hotels, meals, uniforms, etc.

I was at this company for multiple years. The moral is at an all time low. They are struggling to keep pilots and their turnover was over 30% last quarter. The base presidents are all salesman and do not understand anything from a pilots perspective. The base leadership despises pilots and that is not an understatement.

If I were you go to flexjet. The pay is better more days off.

How does it work if they have a plane but based at a non-domicile? For example, they have a 605 listed under Atlanta, but itís Birmingham based crew. You have to drive or fly to BHM for your trips, and any standby is at a hotel/crashed type deal? Do they want you to live in BHM?
