Well, looks like this is the end!! Big meeting today with HR. Rumors (and not so rumors) are the whole flight dept. Will give more news tomorrow, if I am sober enough and not too hung over.

Your CEO must not have contributed to the Hank Paulson slush fund. Our Socialist government is hand picking winners and losers, and if your company is not on the list, you're in trouble. I'm waiting myself to see how this all turns out. Hang in there.

My guess is it has something to do with an acquisition by Wells-Fargo and Masshole-in-Chief Barney Frank wanting any bank that took TARP money (regardless of if they asked for it or not) to divest themselves of their flight department or "any interest" (like a fractional) they own.

Yeah that's right Barney, selling widebody bizjets in today's market at a 25% loss will do farking WONDERS for their balance sheet...

What a shame, I hope you're able to find something better than what you're leaving.

Good luck to all...at one time Hawkaire was my dream job, and it's a department with a heckuva reputation. It'll be a sad day of it goes away.

********************e, I was in Challenger 300 recurrent with two of their pilots last September when I was looking down the barrel at AT&T!

Keep the faith guys, if I can get a great job in this market it is possible! Ok, I had to go half way around the globe but still....

Cheers- Rum

Not that it will necessarily help, but I'd be making some inquiries at Wells Fargo just in case...

No, Wells said that it was a business decision with the market and political environment. We are done, no more. They are selling 3 Challengers and their Gulfstream iv. They are keeping our G550 and 2 Challengers and Kaiser Air in OAK is going to operate them. We can try to apply to Kaiser, but the move and expenses will be your own. Plus, I dont know what the pay is, but it would have to be alot to live in or near OAK.
