    Work rules at NJA

    Pilots only please I worked at NJ for a little while and left as soon as I could like everyone else I 'm sure. The main reason (other than feeling like a made and being paid less than any limo driver) was the safety issue. Yes the planes are nice but that is a given in any co. 10 hours...

    Don't lose your cool NJ guys

    Tactic...Tactic That's just a low offer and I don't think anybody is expecting you to take it. (Except your MEC>>>??$$??) The main problem at NJ is that they don't have training cost but training income. It's more advantageous to train a new CFI than to pay a senior captain for the...

    If i was an owner
