Does anyone know if Penske has a Flight Dept? I work for there truck leasing division and was wondering if they had a Flight Dept. and if they did what type of aircraft they fly, etc. I can't find anything on there corporate website at work, so I thought someone out there might know something.

Thanks,
Brokepilot

Yes they do!
Lear's and Turbprop ATP's (2)
Since you already work for them you should try to
send'em a resume , you never know.
Expect a lot of overnights!
Good luck!!

Yes. Penske Jet. It is a subsidiary of Penske Corp. I had diner with Roger Penske many years ago (my Uncle had a CART/Indy team) and back then their mins. were very, very high even for a Co-Pilot position. He's a nice guy, but boy would I NOT want to work for him.

penske

They have several planes in 3-4 different locations. Lear 60 in LIT and one in Pontiac. They just got rid of a Citation X. They have
3-4 planes based in ILG. They fly their tails off.
A friend of mine flies for them out of LIT.

I heard a story (can't remember when) years ago, that "back in the day", Penske would land his lear on the Indy motor speedway. sounds like an urban rumor.

Thanks to all of you for the info. I am trying to find out more through the internet and other sites, but there just isn't very much out there.
