I know they're currently looking for a captain & co-pilot. Below is the job posting.

Corporate Captain & Co-Pilot 7/14/2005

Renkery Aviation LLC is currently accepting applications for PART 91 jet captain and co-pilot positions. Renkery Aviation is a subsidiary of RKC Corporation, a privately held direct marketing company with sales in excess of 500M. Renkery Aviation is a single jet operator with a Citation Excel, yearly operations in the 400-hour range. The flight department is in its seventh year and has experienced continuous growth. New acquisition to replace the Excel is pending. Captain will share workload with Chief pilot/Flight department manager. Co-pilot will work on most flights. Most operations take place in the contiguous US with some Canada trips. New acquisition will increase exposure to include Hawaii and Europe.

This flight department requires pilots who have both a high level of professionalism and an unwavering commitment to service. Airline pilots are welcome to apply.

Captain requirements as follows: 4000TT, 1000 Jet, 500 Jet PIC, Type in Citation Excel and/or Falcon 2000 is preferred but will type rate the best person if necessary. Willing to relocate to Southern, CA. Outgoing personality.

Co-Pilot requirements as follows: 1500TT, 300 multi engine, some jet experience preferred but not necessary. Willing to relocate to Southern, CA. Eager to fly and excel. Outgoing personality.

Excellent pay and benefits package.

Would you be so kind as to post some contact information? I searched for them, but found nothing by that name.

Thanks

In the job post on skyjobs.net, they said to apply you need to login to your aviationcareer.com account.

I pulled up their website and looks like they have a 10 day free trial you can use. Try that out and see if it works for you.

Renkery

I tried the 10 day free trial but it only gives you the jobs listings, no contact info etc. You have to buy the membership for that. It looks almost exactly the same format as planejobs.com. Wonder if its all the same company but just listing different jobs on each one to make people buy memberships to both?

I couldn't find Renkery Aviation listed anywhere on the internet. And the only RKC corporation was an engineering firm in michigan.

Anyone else have any luck?

The aviationcareer.com thing is pretty bogus. What's the point in being able to see the job listings, if you can't see the details or contact information? Experienced pilots stay away from these outfits.

Renkery

I thought of them too but they already have a falcon 2000 and are adding an excel.

I tried to get on with them but I guess they didn't like me.

Sure does sound like them, I'll look into this, sounds like they're either being purposely coy or its a fake add.

Probably Fake!

It's probably a fake, if you replaced "Renky Aviation" with Guthy-Renker you would have an identical add that Guthy-Renker placed back in 2002!

I haven't been able to confirm this yet but it looks pretty slimy.

I thought about that, but I've been known to place ads like this that were legitimate. Sometimes I've needed to find pilots but I didn't want to put the company name out there because I didn't want a barrage of phone calls. I've resorted to making up company names to prevent that from happening.

OR

Maybe the aviation department is now a separate LLC from the parent company, and had to change their name. "Renkery" is a good combination of Gunthy and Renker, still recognizable yet different.





Did I win a prize?

Its Fake

Sorry guys, but it's confirmed it's a fake add. There's only 1 direct marketing company that a) can afford a 2000 and an XL and b) actually operates both. That company did not place an add under its name or a pseudo name, and it certainly wouldn't place that add on skyjobs.net.

Looks like skyjobs.net went into some old NBAA listings, changed the names involved and placed fake adds.

Could someone explain to me the reason for someone putting a fake add on a website? Are they trying to get your personal info or something?

The fake ad is put up to make it look like the pay site has something to offer and you should pay them to see their job listings. It's the same reason they take job ads from free sites or the NBAA or whatever and put them up. That's merely sleazy, but this is actual fraud.

This ad actually appeared on aviationcareer.com, but skyjobs.net might be a front for them, sicne every third ad they run is from that board.

They are all slimeballs

I still see an ad that I placed 4 years ago make the rounds now and then. Remember, these clowns are in the business of selling subscriptions

NOT getting you hired.

The more ads they have, whether BS or not, the more likely you will pay them to see them.

I have only heard of a couple of people getting hired through ads on these type of sites.
