I just wanted to say a quick thanks to everyone here who has consistently provided good information about NJA - I just got the call for the U-Boat on the 14th and and really looking forward to coming over there and working with you all. For those who are curious I had my application packet walked in on the 13th, interviewed on the 26/27th and was just offered a class date of the 14th today. I have about 3600 hours total, mostly turbine and not much PIC. Sounds like a good place to work under the new TA and I am very happy to get the offer. Thanks to everyone here who can look past their differences and provide those of us on the outside a look at how things operate there.

Welcome aboard. Although not the best TA, we are on the road to setting the standard-for the better I hope. The fractional industry is still in its infancy. I think you will enjoy it if you can get over all the crazy things they do upstairs.

Pervis--let's help the FNG Twotter out. What are the top 10 crazy things you'd like to see improved? Honestly, I know you wouldn't want the newby starting off with a bad impression or anything, so what's the list? If constructive, I'm certain they will be addressed.

I'm going to be in the Citation Ultra (U-Boat). They made it sound like the majority of hiring for the next few months would be Ultra and 400XP slots and maybe a few X slots too.

Welcome to the family!

Much like our Union bulletin board, if you cut through the negativity of a select few here, you will find very useful information and generally positive, helpful, and happy folks.

Solidarity Brother!

Don't get me wrong. The flight managers, dispatchers, wx folks, and Asst Chief Pilots are all super to work with. I have a problem, like everyone else with scheduling. To have such a vital department not directly controlled by ops and totally unaccountable is crazy. That's what I meant. Lots of examples-too many to list-and we all tire of hearing we don't see the big picture. Hell, they don't even open thier eyes.

That is what frustrates the most hardened veteren. My point was to say just sit back and avoid the frustration trying to figure out a better way. They won't listen anyway.

Yep, we still have them. I believe we have 14 right now with at least one more coming. I'd love to have a lot more - it's a great airplane for what it does and a very good improvement/development on the Ultra.

Well, we were supposed to get CJ3s instead. But apparently Citation Shares had a verbal "non compete" clause with NetJets in regards to XLs and Xs. They weren't supposed to use them in their fleet. Then they did. So Santulli got pissed and bought Beechjunks. This is from Bill Boisture. So take it for what it's worth.
