Could this be the JANET flights out to area 51? Do you need time in UFO to be considered or maybe have a little green in your blood?

Because of the nature of the TS clearance, its probably going to be pretty hard to get that job as a civilian, unless you are a guard/reserve pilot, or already have a job requiring that clearance. I would guess military pilots would be much more preferred also, due to the locations they fly into.

One would probably get to see some unusual aircraft occasionally, although I doubt those are just left on the ramp.

If I'm not mistaken, the Dept. of Energy was responsible for operating these 737s out of LAS. I'm not sure if that's still the case. Anyone have current info?

I dont think those are, since those are mostly to go out to the certain nellis range complex, to take civilian contractors there. EG&G has always had a big presence out there on the DOE areas, and I am sure some of their aviation activities are for DOE, just not these. I think AFSC owns some or all of these 737s.

DOE activities on the areas that are actually under DOE control are a lot less than when the nuke testing was going on full steam.

I used to work for a company that ran a weekly shuttle out there. I could never go due to the security clearance. None of our pilots ever got to see any UFO's. The ramp was always empty and hangars locked up tight.

However, I heard on the Art Bell show that there are aliens being held captive there. That sounds kinda neat.:)

The JANET flights are operated and crewed by a large defense contractor, EG&G. The B-737 Aircraft are owned by the U.S. Govt. Due to high security clearance reqs. they only hire former military for flight crew positions.

I can't tell you how I know this, it's still classified...:D

I've heard of a BI, and an SBI, but an SSBI? That really is super secret special.

I flew T-43s at Mather before it closed. I also had a TS clearance from flying EC-130s. I thought about taking a job flying Janet when I retired but after talking with a couple of their pilots about how boring their days were, I decided against it. Really boring job.

A couple of times in the past two years, an unnamed company advertised for DC9 crews to be based in AZ and NV for a "government contract" and said a "top secret clearance" would be required.

I contacted the outfit doing the job posting and was told hiring was put on hold. That was the last I ever heard.

A MOFSA was conducted and it appears it might have been Ross Aviation in ABQ. I guess they must be doing something akin to this EG & G ?

Well Ross was and is flying on DOE contracts, involving moving certain parts between Pantex, ABQ, DOE test site, etc. Also used to fly a twin otter back and forth between ABQ and Los Alamos for a while I think. They still do DOE work, but not as much as in the past, there just is not as much work do to I think.

Prob part 91, since it is a "airline" but in-house for DOE/Govt

same as Con-Air, etc
