Anybody heard of these guys? They're are based in FLL, flying 402's and 414's. My buddy is trying to get a gig there. Any info about QOL on these guys would be awesome.

Thanks

I was wondering the same thing. Sounds like a good outfit.

I had a friend who went down to check them out in person, I will ask him what he found out, and post it if I hear anything.

I spoke with these guys a few months back. Pay is not above $30 and they seem very nice, with beautiful equipment. my boss used to work there and said that they don't pay/fly enough to make a decent living, but that could have changed. If you want to know more, PM me and I'll find out all that I can from the man.

I worked there for a little over two years. Dave and Lisa (owners) were without a doubt the best bosses I have worked for. They genuinely care about their pilots. If you need time off, all you have to do is ask. They will do the best they could to accommodate you. Looking back on my time there it was a great job to get your feet wet. You learn a lot and fast bc you are responsible for practically everything. From pax mannifest, apis, weight and balance, filing, to flying, you do it all. The pax themselves are almost always in a good mood bc they are traveling for vacation purposes. 99% of the flying you do is to the Bahamas. I can honestly say in my time there I flew to every airport in the bahamas that can fit a 402. The flying was fun and very rewarding. Having said all of this, it is your typical 135 south florida operator. The airplanes are far from perfect, but they wont kill you. Summer flying is few and far in between. I would go weeks without flying from july 5th- Sep/Oct. As someone mentioned, you get paid per flight hr. Thats it. No salary, no guarantee, no benifits. It was my first charter gig, and it helped me become competitive enough to get a 'jet job.' I didnt make much, but the tips helped out A LOT. If you're young, single, and somewhat debt free you'll survive. By survive I mean you'll make more than a first yr FO at a regional, but thats about it. If you are trying to support a family or a loved one, my advice would be to look elsewhere. All in all I cherish my time there, and would do it all over again if I had to.
