For now, the program covers flights departing from airports east of the Mississippi at a fixed hourly rate of $5,795 (not including FET). Deicing is not included in the pricing, there is a 72-hour window for reservations as available. Flight minimums are the same 60 minutes as its existing jet card programs."

flyExclusive is a third-party operator and our fleet of Encore+'s complement the Uniform Pop King Air's. In addition to the light jet program, our Excel & new Ten fleets have supplemental lift and recovery capabilities for the Wheels Up fleet.

No need for nervousness, we appreciate all the flying you all are sending our way!

In fact, there is some nervousness among our pilot group that we will soon be required shed our polo shirts for button downs with epaulettes and there is even talk of a tie...to make an important customer happy!

After observing some of your pilots at TEB and other places last week, perhaps a uniform that fits and is clean would be a first positive step..... lol

Talking If you see something, say something...

Bro,

You're one of us, so if you see something, you should say something..

Me personally, I enforce those of us with more stray nose hairs, than hair on top... "Dude, don't you have a Wife or girlfriend to let you know when your tentacles are going wild"

LOL.

Nice 1st post.

I do agree pilots are there own worst enemy due to there own greed and selfishness.

Why this thread?

I am sure you can get more feedback from a more followed thread.

The Wheels Up purchase of TMC should quiet down the rumors of a deal with Gama/Wheels Up.

Hey Beek,

There are definitely INDOC classes for late June and late July, but I’m not sure how full they are. Beyond the late July INDOC class, I’m not sure, but I know that it is due in part to simulator slot availability.

I do know that they usually stop calling people at least two weeks before, so that the new hire can give a proper two weeks notice to their current employer. So unless the pilot is immediately available, they would have an offer at least two weeks before INDOC starts.. None of that calling late Friday afternoon..”Can you be here for class Monday?”

-CJ2s retired from fleet with exception of one, which is mainly being used as an errand runner and for crew movement. CJ pilots transitioned to Soverign, Excel, & Encore fleets.
