Got on with them in 2018, yes the only ugly is the training contract but since I live less than 30 mins from the airport I knew I would be with the company for a while. Am on a managed A/C, so far really good, 3 pilot rotation so we do 20/10 I end up flying like 8 days a month. Pay depends on where the aircraft is based but itís negotiable but I can honestly say itís better than XO and Flex Jet Pilots pick their hotel , company card and a decent per Diem, but could be better. Company is ok nothing bad to report, MX is spectacular I must say. Company pays 500 towards iPad, but CAE gives you one also. If lay over is 72hrs and more rental car is an option. PM me for more details

Be cautious. While I hope everything stays that way for you. One day behind closed doors if a pilot finds greener pastures and it become 2 crews only. You may find working conditions as a whole different experience. The company nor the A/C owner wonít park a plane for 10 days or 1 for that matter if thereís money to be made. And the DO and CP will care less then that ugly contract will come into play when you donít see your family for weeks it wonít be as Rosey of a picture as you paint. Remember 135 rule on guaranteed days of 13 in a quarter. Jetselect rules are a guide line not a guarantee like they promise in an interview. PM for further questions.

This is a pilot economy no reason to sign a 50k contract. It’s only there for Jetselect managment to abuse you.
Just got a connection invite from them on Linkedin.
What could POSSIBLY go wrong ?

Thanks for the info. Would need a pretty good reason to leave my current gig, and what has been discussed above does not even come close to providing
