Red Wing Aero?
 
Anyone? Pay? QOL? They do maint in Wisconsin and they also fly a citation. Just wondering if anyone knows anything about the charter side?

You must have seen the ad on Climbto350. I think it's strange they only require a Commercial Multi and 1000 TT to be an SIC in a Ciation, while every other company requires a type rating and type in type. Maybe they have a high turnover rate or something or crappy SIC pay or no pay? The mins. just seem a little low for this job, especially in this economy.

Yea it just seems like a weird post in general. The "this is a 135 job if you cant fly 100 hours a month and be gone 20 days" thing kinda turned me off but im just trying to find someone with some first hand knowledge.

I know somebody who used to work there. He really liked it until he tried to leave. They pulled some wierd stuff to get him to stay. They told him that he over flew a VOR check one time a while back and would report him to the FAA if he quit and stuff like that.

Couldn't he have just filed a NASA report? Seems hard to be able to control someone for over that.

They will hire anyone with a commercial cert. pay is crappy 30k sic, 45k pic! You fly 20 days a month and there is no set schedule. You could be out for 5 days or 12 days at a time. Its a bottom feeder charter operation. I've known people that have worked there. When they tried to leave they do pull some shady stuff... They pull Hobbs meters just to get more flight time in between inspections. Just to name one major no no. But they will have a pile of low timers that don't give a s*]t about the bad stuff that goes on. They also sic type you at sim com! Which carries no weight if you plan on using that another company. Unless its from flight safety or simuflite. Most insurance companies won't accept it. Your life would be better not entering that mess.

Skip RWAC. They travel you on your days off, have you sign a non prorated training contract and "base" you where ever/when ever it is convenient for them.
Upgrades are offered with another training contract.
