United States Steel in Pittsburgh, PA just let six pilots and eleven mechanic go today. They are getting rid of two Hawker 900xp's and keeping a Falcon 900Ex Easy.

Anyone knowing of any pilot positions open for a current HS125 or DAEasy or G-IV, G-V, G450, G550 please let me know.

Holy $hit. Aviation in PIT can't catch a freakin break. I was down the street at Bayer when we closed on 12/31 (amidst record profits just to get the planes off the books - you're welcome more expensive and less flexible NetJets). You guys, us, Heinz...jeez. Keep your head up. With your quals I don't think you'll be looking long. It just probably won't be in PIT. I got out of town, and I think a good chunk of the Heinz guys were expecting to also.

Are they going to one plane?

Actually we had three aircraft. Not sure how many mech's remain. There were also avionic techs included, along with admin staff that were sent packing.

Jeez that really stinks, sorry for your troubles. Look for jobs in Houston, there are plenty of GV/550 operators and a few Hawker. Mostly Part 91 oil type companies, but some charter out of Hobby and Ellington. Good luck.

Were they not supposed to be getting Challenger 300's to replace the 900XP's? If they are the two matching one's with blue belly's, We tried to buy the 2012. Wanted a price that was far from realistic.
