brewerdog,

I love it dude. You are so right. Every thread becomes a whining-netjets-pilot post at some point. I avoid the yellow ties at all costs in FBO's because I know what I'm going to hear...

Study the Aspen and Rifle approach and departure plates. Questions will be asked about climb grads, radio set up on the approach into Aspen, etc.

Be prepared to discuss your background. They like Part 135/fractional background. Some 121 guys on board.

Very low stress interview, a get to know you type thing. In a few months they may give you a sim session in PBI when the Piaggio sim comes up. So now you get to skip that. Interview probably in PIE or CDW. Depends on where you live.

Oveido,

Unless I'm mistaken, I believe that brewerdog has already interviewed, and been hired. I believe he's asking about flows and such while he's waiting for a class date.

I think whats going on at nja is the best thing to happen to g.a. in a long time. I disagree with some of their tactics, such as same pay for all fleets, and retro pay, but their going to get something, that means the rest of us frac guys will get more. The frac life has now become a stepping stone job, when it should be a career job. Now back to your regulary scheduled program.

Dont you learn those things at training? Flows speeds and such? Isnt that what training is for? Otherwise it would be home study!

Brewerdog,

Are you coming on as PIC? I've been in FL now for a bit more than 2 weeks. First week at Flightsafety, then over to PIE. PM me and I can give you some scoop. I can attest to the fact that for a turboprop this thing is a rocket!

ProLine 21 Equipped Avantis at Avantair?

I just saw a Piaggio ad with the Collins-equipped Avanti. Will Avantair be getting any of the upgraded cockpit versions themselves? What percentage of any new Avantis will be the upgraded version in the future?

Also, any recent news or rumors about more jet aircraft in the future (beyond the few Premier Jets already on the property)?

I agree flows and speeds are for training, but the AIM and parts 91 and 135 are good things to know before you get there ---Brewer

The Premiers (2) were turned back to Raytheon last week.

They were maint pigs for brand new aircraft, Raytheon Services was slow to respond to maint and parts. Mgmt got fed up and said take them back!
