Does anyone know anything about, anyone working for, or currently or previously worked for the corporate flight department for the Walt Disney Company? Trying to find out anything at all, even if all you have is some little tidbit you heard at some point about anything at all. Thanks if you have any info.....:D

Long time ago I think it was called Shamrock Aviation. They were at Burbank. The nephew took his plane some where else.

Good department years ago, don't know anything currently.

I think they've got a GIV (450?) with gold stripes and the tail number ending in "MM". I saw that the other day at SNA. Just reaching back in my memory.

I saw a crew on the shuttle van at IAD last week with Disney ID's and of course the usual Mickey shirt and tie. They got on a Challenger if I was not mistaken.

Interviewed two years ago...at that time 1 GLEX 1 CL60. KBUR based with an additional GLEX about to be delivered if my recall is correct. Sounded like a great gig; I passed on a second level interview for other reasons but probably passed up a super job.

Are you sure that wasn't an MGM bird? They have a few G planes and a BBJ that are painted that way.

You passed up a job, not a SUPER JOB by any respect.

Yep. Sounds like that's it. Those guys DO get around. TC

From day one of your post I have been waiting for someone else to ask this, but your question about Disney and you being DIZNYTWNPLT piques my interest.

Re-awakening this thread in case anyone has any new info. Found them on NBAA, but curious if anyone has any inside info nowadays...I find myself...available, so while this was kind of a fun idea in the past, it would be both that and practical now...I'm kind of a Disney fan anyway.
