Add Jet Aviation and Bluestream to the above list.

I know a few on the list that won't be near the top of the pile!

TAG and NJE would be somewhere near the top!

TAG rosters vary. Though 2/2 is most common some have other arrangements, mine is 1/1.

28 days holiday too which I thought was the legal minimum?

Surely JCB must be the best company to work for?

Bear in mind that most of the advertised 'so many days on/equal amount of days off' rosters in reality mean a day or 2 added to the on-period for travel to and from home. No other way to do it if 4 people are rotating.
Having said that, Execujet's 2 week/2 week is adhered to. Good life.

Hi all

Personally I think the idea of 2wks on/ 2wks off sounds great, dunno bout the month on/off though.

Do you think the above types of rosters are seen as a bit of a hardship and therefore less apply for them (thinking about less competition), do bizjet pilots generally prefer the netjets type of roster ?

What about the companys ......................do they mind if you freelance on your time off ?

Ahh, my son. Many are the mysteries of the Netjets contracts. The biggest one of all being how they get away with it
