Doesn't say, but can you image what kind of hotel they put you in, if you ever get a rent a car, never get a crew meal, do they even pay perdiem?

enough
u kidding me?

I bet that this guys gets more resumes than he will ever need. The way things are going, I can believe anything. Throw in sleeping in the aircraft waiting for the owners after an oceanic turn. Perfect.

Ya know, I'll even bet this dude will be on the cover of ProPilot Magazine as their "feature" flight operation. Even better.

In the end, you get what you pay for.

Jeezus now I gotta go have a drink -

Even though I've been unemployed for 5 months (800 CA), that still doesn't appease me. Let someone else, who is stupid enough to take it, have it.

I am typed but not current in the HS-125.

Screw that and I have been unemployed for 6 months.

Tough job market. I'm going back to school to be a CEO.

I'm typed, not current, and probably about to lose my job, but I'll go do something else first. I've never worked for anything like this in 25 years, not going to start now.

Sad...




The IRS is gonna love that...

Yeah, amazing on how some dirtbag outfit will spend millions on a jet like that, then nickel and dime someone to death who wants to fly it.

And the IRS could jump all over them over the contractor thing. They are treating someone exactly like an employee, but then calling it a contractor to avoid payroll taxes.

You should. If they have been doing this for some time, imagine the audit they would get.

Shoot, why even make this a paying position? Any pilot should be happy in this economy just to have such an opportunity!

I wonder if that pilot from the A-Team is available!
