Something is going down within the company as they are being super hush hush. They got a warning from wall street about being late in filling their annual report. They got 6 months to file it or they get de listed.

Whats the latest at FE? Anyone know what's happening with hiring? A friend who left FE a few months ago said things were not great. (maintainance, finances, morale, attrition etc...) Anyone know more?

Sorry about my radio silence and not getting back to your question, but we have been dealing with my Mom"s health crisis combined with the fact that I can no longer use my iPad on this Forum due to the glitch.

So yes, there has definitely been some turmoil here since they made the decision to park the Gulfstreams and the Citation X's. Also, with our deliveries of the new CJ-3+'s from Textron being delayed, it seems like we have overhired CJ pilots until Textron catches up. Many of the new hires that were destined for the CJ were now directed to the XL, and some pilots newly typed on the CJ were also moved over to the XL. Therefore, with all this internal shuffling around, classes were cancelled and candidates were moved to later dates, disappointingly for them. Meanwhile, dual typed pilots like me from the X are flying the XL, but still getting X pay while we wait for enough Challenger 350's to absorb both the G-IV and X pilots. Funny thing is that I am making considerably more money on the XL because it flies more than the X.

The decision to park the Gulfstreams and the X's I think was a good long term decision, but this wasn't cheap in the short run. Hopefully, though, when the dust settles, we will be stronger for it. No guarantees, though, so time will tell. I start Challenger 350 training in the Fall, so I am really looking forward to that.

Good luck my friend. Dealing with change is never easy and rarely graceful...your words about a hopeful future are rarely seen by posters on the forum...I know your many readers wish nothing but the best for FE and you.

And it looks like they want FULL ATP, not just written done.

I just got an offer from them on the CJ. Any current pilots have any updates on what's going on? Are pilots still sitting for moths waiting on OE?
