    How do they do it at EJA?

    also.. Many of the clients or owners are in the fractional program so they can stay out of the airlines, and have some control over the flight. A lot of them only like to see the Captains flying, and if that is what they want to see then there is no problem in keeping them happy, and FO's get...

    How do they do it at EJA?

    yes not always, but most of the time every other leg is empty, at least on the ultra. Some of the other planes only fly two legs in a day and they are both pax legs. On the trust discussion, my last three flying jobs would only allow the captain to call and initiate an abort. I was almost...

    Employment Contract at EJA

    Oh Yeah.. Forgot I was going to include this in my first post, got distracted by that wife business. I know what the price on my training contract was and I also know what FSI charges for the type rating and all the other training EJA has them do, and it is as much as double what EJA put on my...

    am I current? opinions, please

    How I always looked at it The way I always looked at it when I was CFI'ing was that approaches as an instructor do not count toward your currency. This is merely the way I always interpreted it and without digging for my FAR's I can't give a real solid explanation why. Seems like under part...

    Employment Contract at EJA

    No Kidding! No kidding Chuck, I can't imagine having this career and living with that everyday! I honestly hope that is someone impersonating a pilot's wife and trying to stir things up, if not I guess we can only be glad she is in no way connected to us and EJA. I guess I will go back to...

    Question for Exec Jet pilots

    My thoughts I could just repeat everything everyone else has said, but I will just give the specifics that drew me to EJA. 1 - No more commuting! (I live at a gateway) This cuts at least 4 days spent commuting off my work schedule each month. 2 - EJA safety policies. They don't just teach...

    Type of Sim for the Interview Eval.

    Sims The most common sim used at most interview locations is a King Air. BUT, when I interviewed last year they told me to plan on a King Air 90 and when I arrived I was told I was using a Falcon. Not a big deal whichever you get, they both had analog gauges and you just set the power...

    Photo film through security

    What I have been told I have asked about this at several airports because I often carry film in my bags. SUPPOSEDLY if you put it through the x-ray at the gate screening area (carry ons) it will not affect it unless it is 1000 speed or higher. I may be a little worried if it is 800 speed (the...

    SkyWest Pilot Career Program????

    My thoughts I have always thought of Skywest as one of the best regionals around to work for, but I have to say reading about this program they are endorsing has dropped my opinion of them just a bit. I guess programs like this have always come along when the hiring slows down and the mins go...

    Fellow pilots, your opinion please....

    EJA Observations In the past, a phone call was a key to getting noticed at EJA. You would send in a resume, call and see if they got it, send in the app they give you, and call and see if they got it etc etc.... Now, EJA is specifically requesting that people do not call. The only calls they...

    Fractional minimums

    EJA Mins I don't know much about the others, but EJA mins are pretty set at 2500. Realistic hiring mins right now are in the 5000+ hour range. A lot of very high time pilots in the pool right now.

    Any Suggestions?

    Don't listen to above crock! I too would like to see that world! Companies expect to see a bunch of CFI time in your "ladder" up the career. Without it they start to wonder. Admittedly in the recent past (pre 9/11) some low end hiring scooped up some fairly low timers and they got a lucky...

    Eja

    Clarifying Just some clarification to the 200 more to be hired this year, this number sounds lower than has been reported. This is because many of the classes are already full for the year. They are scheduling new hires into classes for as late a July last I heard. The two hundred is in...

    Anyone have any info on Evergreen?

    Like they said... ...plan on being furloghed anytime they feel a bump in the economic road. Great opportunity for experience, but not a place to plan on spending a career. DC-9's do domestic stuff for the post office and last I heard some for DHL or something. The 747 are probably doing...

    EJA indoc

    Indoc Indoc is two weeks (m-f only) So you end up staying about 12 nights from the Sunday before it starts until the following Friday. Unless you can go home for the weekend then I guess you are stuck in CMH. Right now some people are doing indoc after simulator and some do it after, just...

    EJA indoc

    Hotels If you are looking for points then the Towneplace suites by marriott is an option. It is the same as Candlewood (49) and will get you some points. The rooms have a full kitchen, couch, everything you need to eat cheaply in your room. A lot of my class stayed at the candlewood, not...

    More luggage questions

    I have another question regarding EJA and luggage. I am wondering if I will continue to need to lug around my flight case I have used for years carrying piles of jepps and other books. What does EJA require you to carry? Also, should I take it to my indoc to carry home books? Are they going...

    EJA A/C Assignment

    What I got... At my interview I answered that I wanted to fly the Citation X, but I was excited to fly any of them, they all looked good to me. I am now scheduled for the Ultra in late Feb because I elected seniority over size (does size really matter??). I think a lot of what determines the...

    UAL chapter 11

    Didn't mean to come off so cold... Sorry to set off such a riot on here, I do apologize for the statement about bankruptcy not happening to a better airline. I have some emotions about them due to their lack of customer service over the years as a business traveler, shouldn't have let that...

    UAL chapter 11

    My 2 cents Not to fuel the rumors more, but I heard it like Taco explained it, if those things happen then chapter 11 will happen. Especially if and when the mechanics raise goes through, that will push them over the edge. The reason for chapter 11 will be to get "emergency action" on the...
