Figured that someone should start a thread to see what is happening down in Orlando...

FLOPS announces Wifi on their Phenom 300's and other planes...

What else has been announced so far?

Agreed, "fastest growing" seems to be an out-dated phrase...

Bombardier seems to be perfectly willing to deliver them, we just aren't taking them...though it does sound like a paint scheme for our 3 and the next 2 is in the works. I really like the white though, seriously.

Where's it going? Good question.

What furloughs? Like it or not, they weren't furloughed.

HHHMMMMM... Where do you work? So that I can ask irrelevant questions and make dumba$$ comments about your employer. How about a good luck guys, or hope for the best? We, as pilots, don't make any decisions that are relevant to the questions you ask. We are just trying to do our best to make a living and take care of our families. Yet you patronize everyone on this board as if we are the enemy for working where we work.

What gives?

When are you interviewing and/or hiring, your website states you have open positions.


And congrats on the new financing.:beer:

Biggest news I saw was the G3000 avionics for the new HondaJet. Got the chance to use the mockup and talk to the CP. Really easy to use.

Well, that is the million dollar question. I think the website has always posted open positions, hiring or not. There have been rumors of hiring, but nothing solid that you could make plans for.

Thanks for the kind words!!!! Wish I could be more help.

Come again on this one? You think TPG is going to try and smash Flex and XO together? Hoo boy.

I don't know about that... I wouldn't read to much into this. I haven't seen any press releases about TPG releasing funds to by Flex. Besides, FLOPS is gonna buy XOJET remember... :rolleyes:

Looks like aircell will be providing the wifi for flops. Does anyone know if aircell is capable of providing in-flight wx to the pilots efb's through this wifi service? Maybe something that will compete with xm and wsi.
