Hey HR,

We are still hiring pilots like mad, with classes of 23-26 per month. Our attrition is good attrition, if there is such a thing, with United, Delta, American, and FedEx being final destinations for our pilots. We have also lost several to great positions that they could not turn down at EJM and Netjets. We need to hire like this to meet the staffing requirements for 47 new jets coming between now and 2025.

Here is some information for you. Do with it what you wish. I put in with Fly Exclusive on the same day that I applied with 4 other companies. Heard back from 3 nearly immediately (I meet the hiring requirements on all - including being typed on one of their current aircraft and one of their future aircraft). Fly Exclusive & one other company I have yet to hear back from. One would assume that their selection criteria may be significantly different than other companies, that or they are so back-logged with applicants that they are too busy to get to it. Who knows.

Heard back from them today. I would surmise that they are just really busy.

Training contract is 28K for year one...none after that.

Not sure about the 30 hour bonus

FO hours are paid at $50/hr over 30. As far as an average goes itís hard to say. Totally dependent on aircraft MX/availability and demand. Youíll have good months and bad months. If* you get a good plane and can keep moving Iíd say 60-80 hours a month is fairly common on most fleets

What's a "good plane"? They seem to be advertising a lot for CJ and XL fleets. What would be the average monthly hours for these fleets?

by good plane I mean one that doesnít go down for MX, Both fleets are decent, but itís kind of a roll of the dice sometimes, know what I mean?
