Jt

I knew a guy who flew for him and had some nice things to say about JT, but his wife is a monster.

Question is...

Why is he looking for new pilots? I hear the last two guys went to SWA but do not know if that is true.

Anyone interview recently?

The posting lists Ocala, FL. Is this really where you would be living? I was pretty sure Mr Travolta was living on the West Coast.

JT keeps his plane at Graystone, 17FL, just a few miles NE of Ocala. They used to have a fly-in the first Sunday of each month, not sure if they still do.

I thought JT flew with a co-pilot. Wonder how many hours they get each month.

John has some really nicely furnished studio type apartments on his property that his crew members can stay in when he needs them to fly with him. I would imagine that if you were hired you could live anywhere in Florida but would need to be somewhat nearby to get to his place. Orlando is only about 1.5 hours away.

back in 92-94 ish, JT had a copilot (or a captain and JT was copilot) on his Gulfstream (I believe) that lived in San Antonio. I think that guy was like 60 or 65 years old

his daughter worked at one of the FBO's at KSAT

:D

If JT smokes half as much in the cockpit as he does in his movies then you'd better buy some of that cancer insurance before you start with him. I bet every approach that 707 flies is CAT III due to smoke in the cockpit.

17FL (Greystone)

Thats actually a large metal globe that sits in his front yard. The picture that was linked is rather old. I've been there on the ground several times and I must say it is pretty impressive to see a 707 and G2 in his backyard.

Its one of the more interesting runways I've landed on mostly because of it's width, lack of proper striping, and huge displaced thresholds. The centerline stripes are only about 12" wide, not wide enough for a nearly 300' wide runway, and the runway slopes up a bit causing a pretty wicked landing illusion. There is also a 500' tall antenna about 1 mile south of the 18 departure end.

There is a fly in brunch on the first Sunday of every month at the countryclub; I do believe you have to be on their email list for an invite though.

enough
I've flown over it many times and can't see why such a huge displaced threshold on both sides. Anyone know?

i heard that JT has homosexual tendencies, and this is from someone that flew with him 5-6 years ago.
