When the CL60s and Lr60 left Jetride (Aka Airnet) they started their own company called Jetselect. Jetride was doing a lot of business on these aircraft by getting work from Bombardier Charter, or whatever they call it. The KC based 601, a midwest based 604, and a LR60 from who knows where, owners got greedy and wanted to start a company of their own. Now you have Jetselect. Be careful, as these are the worst type of people to work for. Aircraft owners sucessful in other business outside of aviation thinking they can "show the aviation folks" how its done. You dont want to be there, as you can see by the professionalism they showed you in ignoring you and your attempts to contact them.

I can tell you from first hand experience that the people running Jetselect are grade A, 100% pure scumbags. JetRide is 100% better becuase those douche bags left.

Pretty much what I said. What comes around goes around is a statement that will eventually ring true with this operation. This business is too small to do the things that they have done, so I can't imagine that they will be around very long, and now that they have burned Jetride, no reputable operator will take them when they come crawling back begging to be put on a 135 cert. I don't think Bombardier will put up with the things they do, but who knows, maybe they will if they think they are going to be selling them a new 605. Like you DangerKitty, I speak from 1st hand experience. Maybe you and I should talk..........

How do charter companies make money. Is there really that many flights that are open? Do they use a broker to get flights?

Why do you ask so many questions?

If they do it right, charter companies can make dang good money...For instance, the one i work for...More flights than they can handle, fleet has tripled in 2 years, can't keep staffed...thats not necessarily a good thing, but they're doing something right...Most successful charter companies don't put all of their eggs into one basket. Ours uses about 1/3 brokered flights, 1/3 medical transport, and 1/3 regular charter clients...We would be just fine losing any one of those three. Definatley not somewhere i want to stay, but its not a bad stepping stone

So is there a lot of medical and brokered flights available? Just taking one area like Socal there are hundreds of charter companies. Its amazing they all do so well.

Ok i just wrote an extensive response and it got deleted, i think....Yes there is a lot of business for my particular company. We have exclusive rights for 3 hospitals and have an average of 15 flights a week that are just medical. This involves us bringing doctors to a location and them procuring an organ, then returning. Much better than air ambulance and yes, i've done that...Decent company, but if we had significant competition, we might be in trouble

The Reckoning

Wait till the sale of AirNet/JetRide are complete. JetSelect's management who broke from JetRide will have to deal with civil and criminal charges for conducting JetSelect business while at the same time operating and having controlling interests in JetRide. THIS IS A BIG NO NO!!!

JetRide did not want to be in the middle of law suits while trying to intertain bidders.

OH YES, THERE WILL BE A RECKONING!!

Jet Select Response

Guys - those of you ripping Jet Select obviously don't know the way things are there. I recently interviewed there and I found it to be refreshing compared with many other 135 operators. The pay and benefits were very competitive and atmosphere was excellent. Like many other 135 operations, you need to be able to think on your feet, offer alternatives and be a leader. Frankly, as a pilot I love that approach.

Also, as far as the JetRide/AirNet situation, can you blame these guys for going to a better situation? With the atmosphere at JetRide / AirNet and the complete lack of leadership (let alone a lack of knowledge in the new Flight Ops leadership - absolutely NO FAR 135 pax experience) I have to think anybody offered a better deal would jump on it - and they did.

I hope I get a chance to work with these guys - there approach is appelaing to me and I like cutting edge.

Uhhhhhh, the lack of leadership and the atmosphere at Jetride was in place because of the very morons that are now at JetSelect.

Since those idiots started JetSelect, Jetride has become a great place to work.

Have fun dealing with MG's lies and deceit.

Dude,

We do know what we're talking about, we worked for these guys and with the exception of one of the guys, they're scumbags. They will lie to you up front than stab you in the back later.

Remember, you can't judge a book by it's cover.

Thats why I left Jetride under the old regime. IE the a**holes who are at Jetselect now.

Evidently this moron doesn't want to hear advice from people who have been there. Screw him, he will find out in due time when MG lies to him time after time after time after time after time.

DL was fired from NetJets. I wonder why?

Like my Dad always tells me, "Some people just aren't satisfied until they have a foot up their AS#. You talk about the Jetride not having any 135 PAX experience, but the people at Jetselect are those same people. Did you not do your homework to find that out? Also, with your times and type ratings, I question why it is you are interviewing at a place like this when you could have much better opprotunities. It's suspect and leads me to believe that you have a checkered past or can't make it through the P91 background checks. I know the $ here is decent, but that is it; DECENT. A guy with your experience typically looks to get out of being on call all the time flying charter customers around. This plave might be better than where you previously worked, but it is my no means a shining example of stellar professionalism. But i know you ar enot going to take my word for it, you want that foot parked square in your AS#. This might be a good job for a few months, but when the new wears off, I'll be looking for your post asking about jobs in your area. Now, put the crack pipe down and go home and get your shine box, Boy.

All I can say about Jetselect from my very brief meeting is this - they are unprofessional as hell and I do have to also say they rank in the top 3 all time jerk offs I have ever met in aviation and would not want my good name ever associated with these individuals, and that was just the interview.... my advice run, run and do not look back-this is what this industry has come to and it is embarassing and ridiculous to even think about it. People like these should be black balled permanently from aviation.

Wow

Pretty obvious you guys all work at JetRide and are still pretty sore over these guys leaving for a better situation.

I wonder how that $9 million third quarter loss at Airnet/JetRide feels about now!!

See ya in the unemployment line.
