Word is that JS is adding 10 Phenom 300s and 10 larger aircraft (potentially Legacy 600/650s) next year alone. Some pretty big expansion plans.... Makes sense since they now have a good brand and sizable customer base.

There is no sim eval. It's a 3 panel interview, all TMAAT and personality based.

Thank you, DH.
How much do CJ crews on the east coast fly per year?
Any recent updates specific to the east coast?

Not what I hear. Friend on the inside tells me all the emphasis is on the secretive "JetSuiteX".

Health insurance that isn't too good. 401(k) - with no match. Vacation time was pretty good.

Another insider told me that the Phenom 300's will simply replace the CJ3's: no net growth. Larger aircraft are seen as the carrot to keep people interested.

Would not surprise me. JS has created a good brand and customer base so far. To keep them, JS has to offer more capable flying options because other large operators like Delta Private Jets, Wheels Up (XLS) and the fractionals offer a wider variety of options and flexibility to customers.

Sure, the Phenom 100 works well on the California to Vegas or SDL flights, but what if those same customers need to fly to Dallas or Miami from SoCal with 4 pax and bags? How many CJ3s are available out West to cover these types of trips? I think flexibility of options to meet trip needs is a big deal to these customers. The Phenom 300 is certainly versatile from a range/performance standpoint and dual flying with the 100s makes it a no brainier.

When are we going to hear more about the rumored Legacy 600/650 order? Some initial rumors and then nothing....

JS moving into the large cabin market with the 600/650 Would be a big change to the business model. Selling empty legs for 69 bucks in a Legacy will quickly bankrupt the company. The JS model works for them right now with light cabin planes, but I am not sure transferring the model to larger planes will work.
