I don't think that MGM would be a problem, just my guess. I used to fly out of 71J near Rucker.

Hey,

It depends... They are trying to fill positions for typed, current, and qualified street Captains for the Citation X and the Encore first, so if you don't have one of those types it will take a little longer.

I know that it's cliche', but be patient. Also, if you have less than 1800 TT and 100 Multi, then they probably won't be in a hurry. They will put you in the system, but they won't call you until you show that you have met those minimums. If you PM Amphibian, then he can check for you....

Aircrew Academy computer based training at home= 40-60 hours.

Basic Indoc= 1 week in Kinston.

Type Rating= 2-3.5 weeks at Flightsaftey, depending on assigned airframe.

IOE= 2-eight day rotations.

Most importantly: Salary and per diem start day one of Indoc.

Default FlyExclusive New Hire

Just wanted to post a message about my recent experience as a new FlyExclusive First Officer. Iím very grateful to Amphibian & B727DRVR (who I have met in Kinston during Indoc) for their helping me as a new hire.

I just completed my Sovereign Type rating in Orlando at Flight Safety after Indoc in Kinston. Everyone at FlyExclusive was very friendly, helpful and totally professional in every aspect of the onboarding process. The Chief Pilot who ran the Indoc class did a terrific job of teaching the Part 135 material, along with other company personnel explaining many other facets of corporate on-demand charter operations. (I recently retired after a 35+ year career from the Part 121 air carrier world).

I begin one of two 8 day IOE rotations next week, and look forward to the challenges that lie ahead, and learning all I can about this new adventure. There was some 135 flying in my early years, but a lot has changed in the amazing new avionics, and aircraft technologies; so Iím excited to be a part of the growing team at flyExclusive...

Hey guys,

Am new to APC and just had a few questions regarding flyExclusive.

I'm married to an American girl and we're making the move up to the States a little later on this year (just waiting on a Green Card) and I'm trying to find out about the different types of flying/companies available. Part 135 seems like it would suit me especially with the 8on/6off schedule, and being home based.

My questions are:

1) What is the quality of your time off? Are your families excited to have you home or are you grumpy from being jet lagged/long days?

2) I currently have 3500TT, around 1800 Multi engine/multi crew, and 800 TPIC. With these hours what are the chances of getting onto something large that does long haul flights?

3) And lastly, is flyExclusive considered a career airline, or do guys tend to use it purely as a stepping stone onto bigger things (Major Airlines)?

Thanks for your help
