Does anybody know who the company is that is looking for a 45 captain in the Midwest? The job is posted on avcrew. They also have challengers.
They just posted another ad on avcrew.com for a LR45 or CL30 pilot. Either they're growing or they've had some sort of turnover. I can't seem to crack the nut there.
From what I hear, they'vd had quite a bit of turnover. Very right-wing, politically connected company. Make sure that if you speak with someone there that you pronunciate "Koch" as "Coke".
I think you guys are talking about this position
