Hate to ask anybody what they make, but I am interested in XO and can't find much information on them even on there web site. Just curios how quality of life is schedules, pay etc. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for wasting our time flyzimex with your non-answer. Last time I checked this was an information board. SICs basically start at $50K and PICs start at $90K and top-out at around $140K. I don't work there but I hear it is a great place.

Be aware that David Siegel (ex USAirways CEO) was just hired as the new CEO of XOJet. He brings a bad labor-related reputation but it is very early in his term to determine if he will do harm or good. Let's hope he does more good than harm...

Two schedules offered: 8 on 6 off and 15 on 14 off (I think). Roughly 20 Citation Xs with 2-3 Challenger 300s in 2008 and 15+ Challenger 300s scheduled to arrive in 2009. Here are the XOJet pilot domiciles:

Pilot Regional Domiciles:
  • Albuquerque, NM
  • Atlanta, GA
  • Austin, TX
  • Boston, MA
  • Charlotte, NC
  • Chicago, IL
  • Cincinnati, OH

Thanks for wasting bandwidth on something that has been posted about a gazillion times.

I'm glad you gave him the website since he already said he had checked it out but couldn't find much.

All I did was something that is done time over time again, ask people to search when there is plenty of info already posted.

If you check my track record you will find that I have been quite helpful when I can, especially when it comes XO. And I don't even work there but follow their progress very closely and retell what I hear from people working there.

Carry on guys..

I am currently waiting on my class date at XO. However, I have three good buddies there already and they say they absolutely love it. $52,200 for FO and if you live at one of the bases listed above, it's considered tier 1 and you can have the 8 and 6, if you live other than those you get the double rotation (tier 2) of 15 and 13. They want you to be within 100 miles of the bases above for the 8 and 6 schedule.

Hi guys, Are your 6 days off actual days off or do you sometimes have to travel on those days? Thanks!

But if you do travel on your days off, it's paid out at 1.5 x your daily rate.

The overlap provided by our 8/6 schedule helps protect your days off. If we went to a 7/7 schedule, you'll be working on your days off much more. We don't have a big enough pilot group to provide the coverage we need on that type of schedule.

Why would anyone get excited about a 8 on 6 off that schedule SUCKS! Or 15 on are you kidding me?

Well, I am excited about it, since I have been flying freight on a 5 on 2 off schedule for the last 3 years, and doing it in 40 year old airplanes. It's kind of hard to "get away" when you only have 48 hours off.

well someone posts "XOjet is gonna put all your netjets guys outta a job"....what did you expect to happen?

Let managent handle competition.....lets the pilots fly the plane. This exactly why the industry sucks, because we all can't get along. If we stuck together, regardless of who you work for, things would be a lot better.

Who posted that? I never saw that anywhere, especially in this post. Someone asked about XO's pat rates, I mean pay rates...

I agree that we should all get along, but you need to start telling all the NJ pilots that first.

Oh yeah, quit thread hijacking all the time too!

Yeah Cherry, I see it all the time. I observe more than I post on here, and I don't stoop to the level of those certain posts. It doesn't bother me, but no I don't see why everyone can't get along on here. It's quite silly if you ask me. By the way how are you liking that awesome 8 and 6 schedule?
