Hi guys.

I just want to give you guys a heads up on this individual. I just saw an advertizement for a PIC and SIC for a GII on www.bizjetjobs.com.
The company name is The Players Club.

PLEASE READ THE ARTICLES I POSTED WITH THIS THREAD.


My friend flew for this company owned by Lenny Dykstra. That airplane is not RVSM approved and doesn’t have any insurance and other documents nesessary to be legal. He is only looking for the two next victims to fly his airplane back to Camarillo CA. Guys I understand that with this economy every one of us is in need for a better job or just simple a job. Please be really careful. Lenny will promise you going to make money working for him.

Guys please, I don’t know any of you, but if you or any of your friends is looking to work for this individual please be carefull.

FALL-STAR: Deep-in-debt former Met star Lenny Dykstra is the target of a dozen lawsuits and may forfeit his $18 million Southern California mansion

"Nails" has been hammered flat broke.

Lenny Dykstra, the once high-flying former Met turned entrepreneur and self-described Wall Street whiz, is at risk of losing his $18 million California mansion and private jet, according to documents and associates.

"He's been writing bad checks all over town," one source said.

The private-equity firm Index Investors filed foreclosure papers March 11 on Dykstra's sprawling Thousand Oaks estate, which he purchased from hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, records show.

Dykstra, a three-time All-Star whose tough, gritty playing style earned him the nickname Nails, did not return calls or e-mails for comment.

The firm gave Dykstra a $850,000 bridge loan in November to help his struggling The Players Club magazine meet expenses. That loan was secured with his mansion, which has been described as the crown jewel of the exclusive Lake Sherwood Country Club Estates in Southern California, the source said.

But Dykstra allegedly missed making payments, which were supposed to begin in January.

Index Investors declined to comment.

Washington Mutual then filed its own notice of default on his $12 million mortgage on March 18.

Meanwhile, Dykstra's Gulfstream II was impounded in Cleveland on Feb. 12 after a creditor said the ex-slugger failed to pay $228,000 for interior renovations to it. The work mainly involved the installation of a state-of-the-art entertainment system.

Constant Aviation, which is in possession of the jet, declined to comment.

The former center fielder also is targeted in a dozen lawsuits by ex-employees and creditors who say they've been stiffed by him.

Thanks for posting. This guy is a washed up scum bag who thinks he is somehow above having to pay anyone for anything. He's being sued by a slew of pilots, charter companies, aviation mx companies, his printer, his personal assistant and half a dozen others. He can forget about Gulfstream travel, once everyone's done with him he'll be lucky if he can afford a ticket on a Grayhound bus.

LOL Biz! We all worked hard to earn the experience we have....everyone deserves better. I hope the word gets around about this guy. The aviation world is a very small one, forums like this help make it even smaller!

And that's what I love about this site, exposing the bottom feeders of this business. Power to the people! ;-)

I thought I remembered many of you talking about this guy.

Just saw he filled for bankruptcy in Federal court, hope the judge doesn't let him off the hook for anything.

He's interview left me feeling like he was hiding something. That dude was really rolling the dice in his investments, spread himself too thin and got burned. He just seems to be snake.

HBO Realsports had an interview with "nails". He Showed up drunk talking like a stroke victim. Bernard Goldberg (Interviewer) was practically laughing in his face.

His comeback plan was that Legends air thing.

You might be able to catch it if you have "on demand"

Funny, if you look at the banner at the top of his website he has a photoshopped G450 inflight with the pitot covers on. Someone spent alot of time PSing out the gear and background.
