For the Citationshares folks,

When are the CJ3s expected on the line and how many do you expect through the end of 2005? Anyone out there actually flying them - any impressions? Are newhires being hired into the CJ3?

Lastly, from an owner perspective, what's the advantage of a owning a share of a CJ3 vs. the Bravo in terms of operating performance and share cost? Any big differences between the CJ3 and the Bravo?

Yes

I can't help with the rest. Sorry.

Will CS CJ1 pilots also fly CJ3s?

I think I saw a CJ3 a week ago at LAS. Looked longer than a CJ2 - very nice looking.

My question is, will the CJ1 guys at CS also be rated in the CJ3 or will they be distinct fleets?

I was curious about that too. Will the CJ1 pilots fly both the CJ1 and the CJ3 or will they have distinct pilot groups for each fleet?

Any CS guys out there? Bravo Pilot? Anyone else? ECHO ECHO ECHO

Can anyone at CS also break out the number of aircraft you have per fleet? How many Bravos, CJ1s, Excels, Sovereigns and now CJ3s? Thanks

The way I undertand it the CJ guys will get differences training and will fly both aircraft.

We currently have

13 CJ1
27 Bravo
21 Excel
1 Sovereign

2nd Sovereign and first CJ3 sometime this month.

Good luck

These, Sir TC, are my mottos/credos. The rest of the stuff I just plain forgot in my old age.:p

I REALLY want to fly the CJ3. Anyone have one they wouldn't mind lending to me for a while?

My beloved straight CJ was sold last week. WAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!

English,

You know of an operator out east that has two CJ2s and has a 3 and another 2 on the way. Too bad you wont work for peanuts.

PS I dont work there anymore - not that it matters, I wasn't on the CJ.

Pilot Base

Is there any talk of Citationshares possibly putting a base in the North Central part of the US? Like MSP or STP for example?

Here are the pilot bases as spelled out on their website:

BOS, HPN, EWR, BWI, ATL, MCO, FLL, MIA, ORD, DFW, DEN, LAX, SFO, PHX, CVG, SAT, STL, BNA, MCI, IAD


Would you consider ORD, STL or MCI as somewhat central? Doesn't look like MSP is incldued which is strange given that there are so many pilots in that area...

I did see that on their website, that is why I asked the question. Thanks for the answer though.

Yeah. I'm allergic to peanuts.

I thought you might have moved on. Best of luck to you in your new gig.

Just saw the first CJ3 online today....and yes new hires ARE going into the 3, bringing 2-3 a month untill the end of the year. The guys who are flying the 1 will stay in the 1, the 3 is its own fleet.
