Ask about your situation during the interview.

I can't say for sure what they'd do, but you might be able to put in for a short unpaid LOA (leave of absence), if need be. I know of one guy who put off his start date because of his wedding. That might be another option, too, though that has an obvious downside with regards to seniority.

Thanks, Yeah i'd hate to give up that seniority if i didn't have to. Do you think that would be a negative against me if i asked that at an interview?

I don't think it would be a negative to ask about having time off for a wedding you've already got planned. And it would be better for you to know about that time off up front than to find out some bad news down the road.

Good luck to you.

I know that they have been very flexible on training dates with a couple guys I know who were in your exact situation. The chances are they'll let you delay your start date.

Just had a friend start a week few weeks ago. His wife was scheduled for surgery. Linda just told him to call when he wanted to start class. Last year when I started I need off for my daughters first birthday. They let me take the following sim class so I could be home. Just let them know up front during your interview and they should be pretty good with everything.

I start class on Monday and was told to let them know the dates on Monday as I am getting married in January. They told me that I would be given a unpaid leave of absense which is fine by me.

Called in sick for my wedding in 1994. 6 mos. with the company (TSA). Called in for the carpet dance, required to get a Dr. note. (Epstein's mother) Couldn't get time off, or trade the trip away.

Divorced the psycho-b#$%^ in 1999. Have a great daughter with her. Better off with No. 2.

No advice to give.

Know other people in the same situation, NetJets has worked with them, was not an issue.

Sick time is your cotractural right. It is yours to use with no justification to be given to the company. Many people cry at weddings. With tears in your eyes you will likely develope a vision problem... and not see yourself going to work.

In the example above, 1994 was a VERY different time at NetJets. There are several Union Yings for management Yangs now.

There are other options too, like a leave of absence. NJA even granted LOAs for pilots to picket in the past year. :)

I'm sure a wedding, your wedding, is LOA grantable.

Do the interview. Get the job. Finish the training and when March comes around, get married. I personally can't think of anyone whose gotten fired because they had to get married. Netjets is a good company and if they want quality pilots around they will cut you some slack. Remember, don't go in asking for permision to get married, just say your wedding is in March and you will be back to work when the honeymoon is over. Your still allowed to have a life.

Get a grip!

I would be stunned if they wouldn't gve you time off to get married!

Hell, you'll be on reserve anyway probably.

Besides, no training contract! They "can" you and you and your type rating haul ass.

I think they will work with you my friend.

60% chance of a crash? Sounds like the last 2 presidential elections...
