Default Tipping

That's good to know! I was really curious about that, as previous employers always made sure we went down with a "big bag of cash" sort a speak. I'm half way through FS now, looking forward to joining you guys on the road!

PS, several lifetimes ago I flew for Netjets, and before we would go down to Mexico, we would raid our supply out stations and make up what we called "Mexican bribery baskets". We would load them with mini's, chips, soft drinks, etc... Everything always seemed to run a little smoother when we handed one of those baskets to our handler.

Not that I would be against it, though. Itís not like we are some 3 jet operation with 10 pilots that they prey on, we are a pretty big operation so nobody messes with us for chump change..

You can apply online, essentially, youíll be flying parts and MX crews to fix aircraft that are broken. I canít speak to details regarding pay or anything else, but itís a great company and good group of people to work for, with opportunities to advance to the 135 side flying a jet. Iíd encourage you to apply and get in touch with the recruiting team.

Hey 727DRVR I canít send PMís but I finished the in person interview on the 29th with a woman who I have forgot her name, but I know she works under the Director of Ops and with him. She is a typed pilot and from Cali was super awesome to talk to. I have 1,500 ATP-CTP done and written done but told me she really liked me and would put in a good word with Director of Ops but I have zero turbine time. I have Glass time and really expressed the understanding of the risk but Iím looking for a home not a stepping stone and was wondering how much or little of turbine time would they like? I shouldíve asked in person. Also any tips or anything? Iím a NC native so it was awesome seeing the facilities and future plans.
