Hey guys,

We have a guy on the Fractional section that we are sure is a Union Buster.

He always talks about how great his non-union carrier is.

He will never say who he works for.

I told him I give up and want in and where could I apply?

He said you have to have 3000 hours of international PIC to get hired?

Anybody here ever hear of such high minimums requirements?

Take care and good luck to you all.

Stag beer coming up!

So much for asking for help from our bretheren at the Majors?

I'm surprised nobody answered my question?

I guess my rebuttle to the union buster slime will go unanswered?

See ya back at our "house"!

Dont think his minimums are accurate. Check with NetJets. They have an international division and I'm sure the mins are not that high.

I had submitted a resume to NetJets and was called for an interview while in training for another job and had to respectfully decline. I don't have that kind of PIC and I don't think they would want to talk to me unless I was qualified.

I don't think NJI is still hiring. Emirates wants 3,000 PIC for direct entry capt. but I don't think they're hiring now, either. VA isn't requiring that kind of time since they're not hiring into the left seat anymore.

Sounds like direct entry capt. for a contract or overseas deal.

No airlines here are hiring anyway.

Or he could be full of crap. TC

Yeah, I don't know of anyone hiring anymore either. It does sound like the 3000 hour, if it's true, would be a requirement for captains off the street.

I think I misunderstood his question.

Oh Good, Thanks but let me clarify!

I already work at Netjets.

I was trying to clarify something a "union buster" on the fractional thread was saying.

He was saying he works at this great non-union carrier.

I said fine, I want to apply.

He said you need 3000 hours of PIC international heavy jet time.

It sounded like BS to me. I've never heard of such of thing for a newhire!

Take care, Semore

It's almost certainly a contract job, any one of dozens available all over the world right now. Requiring 3000 heavy PIC in type is not unexpected when you're being hired as a PIC.

So, now you have. I'm sure the guy is a toolbag all the same.

If you have any sort of decent senority at NetJets, I would strongly recommend staying where you are. With a really weak economy I don't think it's a good time to switch jobs and be on the bottom of someone else's seniority list right now. Good luck!

I don't want to speak for Semore, but I don't think he has any intention to leave NetJets. Although I would encourage him to. He is senior to me. ;)

The buster in question is B19 Flyer. His reading has a good entertainment value as he is completely ignorant to the industry, and he is a compulsive liar. We were trying to catch him in another lie (to which I do about 3 times a day. God it's fun...).

I can't think of a non-union 121 carrier that requires 3000 of heavy international jet PIC time to apply. Any ideas?

Nothing in the USA fits the bill but, like others have said, plenty of foreign carriers have minimums like that for off-the-street captains.

FYI, all new hires for NJI have to come off the NetJets Aviation (NJA) seniority list. i.e., no more newhires off the street for NJI. If anyone is interested in coming to NJI, you have to apply at NJA first.


When did they start this?

In November. Per the CBA all vacancies at NJI must first be put up for bid to the pilots at NJA.

BFD if you need 3,000 pic time or 10,000 PIC..

It is no excuse for that clown to hide the name of this supposedly great non-union company. Sooner or later you will have 3,000 PIC and will want to apply. Plus if you knew the name of this supposedly great company you could monitor it to see if the requirements change.

He sounds like a fake wishing he could get past his 172 instructor job.
