Okay I have now heard from FIVE pilots who have worked there.


AVOID those a--holes. The CP is a d*ck. The whole chain of command is arrgoant.

RUN for your lives.

The word on the street is they're dorking Legacy Contrct Pilots around until they run out of currency then moving on to the next one.

I have NO idea how true this is, but... I did actually speak to them and they betray their arrogance on the phone severely. They have no idea what they're doing....now that the Legacy world is running they're promoting Lear Drivers into the Legacy at low-ball rates and trying to recruit Lear pilot replacements.

EVERY SINGLE PILOT I have talked to that has been there has turned them down OR WOULD.

RUN.

Flame away.

Don't say I didn't warn ya.

Do a search on this site for them. The list of skeptical posts isn't long but it has been going on for awhile.

I got a bad vibe from them, that's for sure.

Sounds like they're set at the EMB position for now. Chris and a Polish guy (Janicek or something) are full-time, with the arrogant CP acting as F/O.

Just more updates as I'm dialed into everything EMB.

Any LA-area EMB people that are looking for a gig PM me. I have a lead.

Well since you are dialed into anything EMB do you anything about the Lineage? How does it compare to the G650? BBJ?

(Just kidding about the G650, I know its in a league of its own)

It looks like the Lineage will be a pretty sweet ride here are some specs:

  • Crew: Three (pilot, co-pilot, optional flight attendant)
  • Capacity: 19 passengers
  • Length: 36.24 m (118 ft 11 in)
  • Wingspan: 28.72 m (94 ft 3 in)
  • Height: 10.28 m (34 ft 7 in)
  • Max takeoff weight: 55,000 kg (121,252 lb)
  • Powerplant:GE CF34-10E turbofans, 82.3 kN (18,500 lbf) each
Performance
*I copied these specs from wikipedia not sure how accurate they are.
