With congress upping the requirements to sit right seat with the regionals anybody have thoughts on the 135 world becoming more saturated with guys buying type ratings and being more than happy to fly for 18K a year to build their time for the "dream job" with the majors....

Don't worry..we're not employable seeing as every employer will think we're gonna jump ship right back into that dream job at NJA...that is if not being able to bid a schedule and being gone all of the time is a dream. Especially when it will definitely not be the same job as when we left correction, forced to leave.

I will not be going back unless it is absolutely necessary, or my mood changes in 5 years.

if the rumors and trade papers are half correct i don't think they will be bringing most of you guys/gals back. my best guess is that there will be shift of clients back to traditional charter and small one aircraft flight departments. I don't think the "I own a share of a Netjet aircraft" is that In anymore.

I think that the Idea of people buying into a aircraft at high resale,monthly management fee's and only recieving "low" wholesale returns on their purchase has run its course.

What rumors are you hearing? All I'm hearing is they are in trouble and need to adapt, which they are doing. Its too early to tell what the next critical 2 years holds for NJA. If they can change their ways quickly, they will come back with more market share than they had before. There is a new management team there now and they are making the changes necessary to do just that. The big nut they need to crack is how to make profit on hourly and management fees.
